Summer Term

Friday 20th April

Welcome back.

The children have settled back into school life with ease and enthusiasm. Many thanks to the parents who attended the phonics meeting on Tuesday. If you were unable to attend we have included a variety of phonics related activities, including phonics screenings from previous years. As we explained in the meeting these samples can be practised at home or downloaded to your phone.

This week we introduced the children to our new book, Bog Baby. We have had lots of fun going on Bog Baby hunts and writing about Bog Babies. In maths, we have been looking at place value to one hundred; filling in missing numbers on a hundred square and looking at how many tens and ones there are in a two digit number, for example, in 62 there are six tens and two ones.

 

Wednesday 25th April, 9.00am: Class assembly – parents are invited to attend this short assembly.

Please can children come to school wearing their princess and the pea costumes for this assembly. They will need to bring their uniform in a bag to change into after the assembly.

 

This week we have been assessing key words and number stories from the spring term list. This will continue next week and then we will start to look at summer term words.

 

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sun.

 

 

 

Spring Term

Thursday 29th March

This week we have enjoyed a variety of Easter themed activities. We have continued to look at Easter poems and look at place value within 50. Children have continued to make their 3D castles in Design Technology.

Dates for your diary:

Tuesday 17th April, 6.00pm: Parents’ Phonics meeting – this is an important meeting to discuss the phonics screening that will take place for all Year 1 children in June. Additional resources to support the screening can be found at the bottom of the Year 1 class webpage.

Wednesday 25th April, 9.00am: Class assembly – parents are invited to attend this short assembly.

Please can children come to school wearing their princess and the pea costumes for this assembly. They will need to bring their uniform in a bag to change into after the assembly.

Have a lovely Easter break and we look forward to the summer term.

Friday 23rd March

As always another industrious week, with the children continuing their work on spring poems. We have created a lovely maths display, looking at counting in 2's, 5's and doubles to 20. Children have also been ordering numbers to 50, looking at place value, for example 36 = three tens and six ones. In phonics we have been revising all of the phase 2, 3, 4 and 5 sounds in preparation for the phonics screening in June. A letter regarding a phonics parents' meeting will be sent home next week.

Please check phonics resources at the bottom of the Year 1 class page for previous phonics screening examples. These examples can be downloaded to practise at home, little and often is always the recommended advice.

Next week we have the Easter bonnet parade for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children on Thursday at 3.00pm. If you have a child in KS2 you can view their eggs from 2.30pm before the parade. Please can all Easter bonnets be brought into school for Wednesday.

Many Thanks

Friday 16th March

We have had a super week celebrating World Book Day alongside our visit from the author today. We have continued our work on shape in maths. In English we have been writing poems about spring, using noun phrases.  Another super week Year1!

Friday 9th March

Another amazing week! We have all worked very hard this week. As always the children have shown lots of enthusiasm towards all that we have done in class. On Wednesday we went for a walk around the village looking at key features. This also linked to our life skills road safety topic. Children have been working with Mrs  Cooke, learning how to be safe near the road.

A HUGE thank you for the amazing models you made at home. They are currently being displayed around the classroom and in the School entrance. The children have enjoyed showing their creativity to the class - well done children and parents!

Reminders:

It is World Book Day on Wednesday, don't forget to come dressed in your pyjamas for the Bedtime stories theme

Have a lovely weekend.

Friday 2nd March Newsletter

We have had a lovely first week back at School. The children created many special memories this week when they took part in the Princess and the Pea production in Manchester. The children and staff all looked amazing - thank you. This half term we will be linking our English to traditional/fairy tales, starting with the Princess and the Pea story. Children will be re-telling stories, using lots of story language and starting their sentences in different ways.

In Maths we are looking at numbers up to 50. We will continue to use our number bonds to ten and doubles to help with this.

We have started our new Science topic on floating and sinking.

Guided reading this week has been replaced with whole class reading, learning the Princess and the Pea story. All children have still been read to on a 1:1.

Next week is test week in School. These 'quizzes' are carried out in a very informal way, in small groups or on a 1:1.
