Deer - Reception & Year 1

Picture 1

Welcome to Deer Class!




Welcome back! We hope that you have all had a refreshing half-term holiday. This half-term, our topic will be Travel. We will continue to focus upon measuring objects (length, height and weight) in Maths and begin to explore the properties of 3D shapes. Additionally, the children will identify coins, continue to practise adding/subtracting and identify more and fewer. Children will study Phase 3 sounds during Phonics, explore their local area in Geography and investigate plants and weather patterns in Science. We will look at the importance of eating healthily and undertaking exercise, read and discuss the Easter story and explore the sounds of different musical instruments. The class will bake biscuits, design cards and continue to enjoy our Outdoor Area. We are certainly expecting a busy few weeks!


If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child then please don't hesitate to come and see either myself (Mrs Hatton) or Miss Webster.













General Reminders:


  • Our PE days are Monday and Thursday so please make sure your child brings their PE kit with them to school at the start of the week. We will keep PE kits in school, although if you would prefer to take your child's kit home with you on a Friday then please don't hesitate to ask!
  • Homework is sent out every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday at the latest. 
  • Reading folders should be brought to school every day. They will be sent home each night, apart from Thursday when we will keep them to put the homework in. Don't forget to log in to your child's Bug Club account in order to access a wide range of free online books. 
  • Please remember to write a comment in your child's reading diary after you have read with them. This will provide us with valuable feedback as to how your child is progressing with their reading.
