Term 3 - Fire! Fire!
Our theme in Armstrong Hub this term is 'Fire! Fire!' which will have a strong focus on our school value of the term - compassion. The children will be learning about how to show compassion to our world during our outdoor learning. To accomplish this we will be learnig about pollution and ways that we can help to keep our planet clean. Please have a look at the theme map and knowldge organiser below to find out more about what we will be doing in school.
Due to the current situation, children must come to school wearing their PE kit on the days when they have P.E. The school P.E. kit consists of a red t shirt, black/navy shorts and white/black slip-on plimsolls (daps). Children also require P.E. kit suitable for use on the field (including the winter months), which consists of black/navy tracksuit/jogging bottoms, a PE hoodie and trainers.
Year 1 - Tuesday and Friday
Year 2 Armstrong AC - Monday and Thursday
Our homework this term will focus on spelling, reading and number skills.
We encourage the children to read 5 times a week. The children’s reading records should be brought into school each day but will be checked each Friday and stamped. Friday is also the day where children can bring in any books they have finished to be quarantined over the weekend and select new books to take home.
We will also be reading with your child as part of group guided reading and this will be recorded in their reading records.
Year 1 Spelling
Spelling in Year 1 is based around the phonics sounds that we will be learning in class. Some weeks, the spelling focus will shift towards our tricky words that we learn in Year 1.
Year 2 Spelling
In Year 2, the children will continue to revise and recap their phonics knowledge for the first couple of terms, before we begin a focus on specific spelling rules. They will also be recapping and learning words from the Year 1 and 2 spelling list. The words they will be learning this term can be in the document below, along with the date they will be checked in school. The spellings have been grouped into ‘families’ where all the words have similar sounds or patterns, which is why there are a different number of spellings some weeks. We have also included the phonics sounds we will be revising in school each week for your information. Each Thursday, we will be carrying out an informal spelling test. The children will receive a homework book which they can bring in each Thursday to record this.
Times Tables Rockstars
Times tables Rockstars is a fantastic way for your child to practise their times tables. The children will be set 2 sessions to complete each week as part of their home learning. In addition to this, the 3 Top Rockers across the school will be awarded a special prize in assembly each week!
