Solent Infant School
Welcome to Year 1
Spring Term News


Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year.

This term our themes are, ‘Home, Sweet Home’ and ‘Green Fingers’. Please look on the school website, on the Year 1 page, for the half term curriculum overview HERE

The Year One team would like to thank you for all your support with your child’s learning at home last term as it makes a huge difference to your child’s confidence and progress. We look forward to working with you in the spring term.

During this term we will continue to send home spellings for the children to learn as well as the real and nonsense words to read together. We will be looking to see how the children use correct spellings in their writing. Our homework will continue to follow the three weekly cycle of reading book comprehension, mathematics and literacy homework. Your support with these tasks is invaluable and your comments in the home school book help to inform us of their progress at home and are very much appreciated.

Year 1 P.E. days

Our PE days will continue to be on a Monday and Tuesday for all classes.

Please could we remind you to ensure that your child’s P.E. kit is named and in school at all times. Also please remember that, for health and safety reasons, hair should be tied back and earrings are removed or taped over on those days.

Year 1 Library day is Thursday for all three classes

Just to let you know

In the second half of term, we look forward to inviting you to watch your child and their class perform a ‘mini’ show to you. The performance date is Monday 25th March, during the afternoon, and performance times will be announced nearer the time.

Thank you for your continued support and help,

Miss Morris and Mrs Loy
