What a busy week the children have had. We have completed our work on Dear zoo and have moved onto our new story “We’re going on a Bear hunt”. The children love this story has have been enthusiastically learning actions to help us retell the story. They will be choosing new animals next week to write their own versions of the story.
In Maths we have been busy looking at number formation and how to represent numbers in different ways. We have been using objects, Numicon and tens frames. We have also began to work on consolidating our knowledge of number bonds to 10.
On Monday we had our meet the teacher meeting. Thank you to all the family representatives who were able to attend. I have uploaded the PowerPoint presentation I used as well as electronic versions of all the handouts below. If you find you have any further questions please feel free to pop into class after school for a brief chat otherwise a meeting can be arranged either after school or during assembly times in the afternoon, Mon-Weds or Thursday mornings.
We are busy collecting plastic bottles for our History week after half term. Any plastic bottles would be greatly appreciated.
Our class has now chosen their Eco Warriors. Congratulations to Jessica T and Ronnie. We look forward to hearing about the wonderful work you’ll be doing and how we can all support you.
The children have their first home learning home this week. They have been asked to practise their number formation within the small squares of our Maths books and play a game of snakes and ladders.
In year one the children will have PE on Wednesday and Fridays. They are however expected to have their PE kit in school every day for other sporting events. The children need to have a full kit including a tracksuit as the children will be going outside for PE unless it is raining.
Reading and Phonics
Please can you ensure your child is doing their daily reading at home? The children need to read daily for 10 minutes to help them practice their phonics and improve their fluency. The children will also need to be asked about the text. This week the children will be coming home with their new reading books and reading records and will have a coloured bookmark by the end of the week. This will have examples of questions to ask them about the text they are reading to ensure they understand what they are reading.
Homework goes out every Thursday and is expected back in on a Tuesday morning. This will consist different tasks based on what the children are doing in school. It will vary from week to week looking at different subjects and different types of activities.
The children have brought their first home learning home this week. They have been asked to practise their number formation within the small squares of our Maths books and play a game of snakes and ladders.
Please can I remind you to ensure all of your children's clothes are labelled as we have had items go missing already and some end up in lost property as they have no name. Please can you also make sure your child also has a named water bottle so they can have a drink of water during the day?
If you have any messages please try to pass them onto Mrs Clarke or Mrs Burgess out on the playground as we like to be there for the children, welcoming them and settling them into their day. This is very difficult if we have several parents wanting to discuss matters right at that moment. If you need a discussion about something, please can you arrange a meeting after school?
If you have any questions to ask or things to discuss please speak to the teacher and arrange time to discuss them with staff at a mutually convenient time.
Thank you for your continued support.
