Year 1 Trip to Reading town centre
Dear Parents and carers, We would like to remind you that we are off exploring the ‘Bright lights’ of Reading on Wednesday 4 th December 2019.
Children need to arrive at school as normal on this day (PARIS will still be taking place). Children must be wearing their school uniform and normal school shoes as we will be doing a lot of walking.
The weather forecast looks dry but please make sure children have a warm coat.
Please send children in with a backpack as they will need to carry their lunch. If you did not order a free school packed lunch by 27.11.19, then you must provide the packed lunch for your child. No more school packed lunches can be ordered now.
We are very excited about our trip, look out for photographs on Tapestry.
Many thanks The Year 1 team
As part of our place to be topic, we will be exploring Brazilian culture and geography including:-

Year 1 have Common Exception Words to learn. These are words where phonics cannot always be used to aid spelling. The National Curriculum has set out 45 that must be learnt by the end of this year. Each term we will ask the children to practise 10 spellings at home. We will also be learning and practising these at school. An assessment will be completed near the end of each term so please take your time learning/practising them over the next 6 weeks.
Term 1 Spellings:
If your child can read and spell these words easily, you can start to look at the words for the rest of Year 1.
However, please focus on supporting your child with the 10 specified words above in order for them to be confident.
Other words for Year 1:
today were you so where
of was your by love

Help your child with reading at home.
