Welcome to Term 2, 2013
Room 16, Year 1.
We had a great first term. We even presented our Assembly item showing the Water Safety rules that we had learned. Every child was a star on the day. Thanks to our families for their support!
Our topic this term is The Enchanted Forest. We are listening to, reading, retelling, writing and dramatising much loved Fairytales and Legends. Some of us have brought favourite books from home. If your child does bring a Fairytale book please ensure it is named. We will definitely look after these precious books and make sure you get them back. Book Week provides some fabulous opportunities for us to further enjoy many stories including those told by our visiting guests. I hope you have been thinking about which book character your child will dress up as for our Book Character Parade on Friday 14 June.
During this year we will begin to learn our High Frequency Words. If we know how to 'read' these words we can begin to learn how to 'spell' them. Don't forget to practise the Magenta and Red lists first, followed by the Yellow list. Spelling these words is more difficult than reading them.
These lists are on our class webpage
