will be writing explanation texts about different aspects of castles, including
weaponry and defences. We will also look at a range of stories set in castles
including The Princess and the Pea. We will consider the castles in these stories to
write our own exciting descriptions which can then be used in our own stories. Finally
we will be having a go at writing our own newspaper articles.
In Maths this term we will be looking at place value. We will be practising partitioning
numbers into tens and units. We will also be practising sharing objects and writing
division number sentences. Throughout this term the children will also look at
capacity and weight.
Our topics in R.E. this term are Reconciliation and Universal Church. We will be
considering the consequences of our choices and how we feel when we make a bad
choice. We will also be thinking about how everybody is our neighbour no matter

If you have any time free and would like to come in and help within the class please
let me know. You can come in and listen to children read or help with little jobs
around the classroom. We would be very grateful for your help.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me at any time. This
can be done after school, when I bring the children out, in their contact book or talk
to the office to make an appointment.
Contact books are looked at by classroom assistants at the beginning of each day.
Please label ALL your child’s clothes, especially jumpers, ties and PE kit. PE
kits should be kept in school at all times.
In Year 1 we encourage children to read every day at home. If your child has read to
you, please note this in their contact book. If your child has read three or more times
at home then they will receive a sweet at the end of the week.
