Key stage one information
Please follow this link for the Induction Pack for the academic year 2017/2018
In the Spring our topic is 'Where do the Bong Trees grow' which will be based on the poem 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat' by Edward Lear. We will be experimenting with pencil and paint to sketch trees and find out about different groups of animals.
At St Edward's Academy we place high importance on reading and having the support from home makes your child's leanring journey even more significant. Please see the reading challenge we do in school to encourage children to read as many times as possible at home.

Spellings- children in Y1 need to be able to recognise and spell (including applying the correct spelling to their writing) the first 200 high frequency words and the Y1 common exception words. Y2 need to know the next 200 high frequecny words and the Y2 common exception words. Please note it is important that children are secure with the Reception list of words before they move on. Spellings are given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday- it is a good idea to use look, cover, write, check to practise spellings, for any more information please speak to your child's class teacher.
