Aqua Class (Reception and Year 1)

Welcome to Aqua Class!

 

Term 6

What would you see in our capital city?

London

 

As Term 6 begin we still find ourselves in a unusual situation. Some of us will return to school for some of our learning while others will continue their learning at home. 

 

For Term 6 we will study different London landmarks through fact sheets, descriptive writing, step by step drawings and model making. We will use stories of adventures around London to help understand what our capital city looks like and the impressive landmarks that can be seen. 

 

Under Term 6 you will find the activities that have been sent in 'home learning' packs and videos of each London adventure story we will be looking at.

RECEPTION

We ask that your child reads to you every night and you practice their tricky words and phonics which are updated weekly.

 

YEAR ONE

Further to reading every night and practicing your phonics and tricky words, the Year One children are given spellings that are sent home on a fortnightly basis. They have a half way test after one week giving a chance to check how well they are learning the spelling rule and then a second test the following week.
