Welcome to Year 1
|Swan Class||Duckling Class||Pelican Class|
Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.
Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.
This week in Literacy we researched and wrote some non-fiction pieces about wolves.
In Numeracy the children have used a range of manipulatives to represent two digit numbers and using the representations to recognise their value.
In phonics we have learned the er sound made up or ir,er and ur.
Next week we will be recapping on split diagraphs and revising the or family.
Well done to all of those children who have been taking AR quizzes.
Some books may appear easier than previous books read at home, but please take into account that the children do need to complete the questions based on them.
We hope you enjoyed our Christmas concert.
We had lots of fun rehearsing and putting it together.
We enjoyed the pantomime on Wednesday and all the children made us proud with how well they behaved.
In Literacy we wrote a Christmas acrostic poem, we also followed and wrote instructions on how to make a Christmas angel to go on top of a Christmas Tree.
In Numeracy we have been learning the names and properties of some 2D and 3D shapes.
We will be creating Christmas pictures using 2D shapes.
We hope you have a lovely Christmas.
Last week in Maths we learnt to use lots of different manipulatives to help us add numbers and represent number sentences in different ways.
In Literacy we used our imagination to think of what we would like to do for a day out with the Gruffalo.
We also thought of questions that we would like to as the Gruffalo and the mouse.
In Phonics we have been learning the oo and yoo family: ew, oo, ue, u-e.
This week we will be learning ir, er, ur, oi and oy.
It was lovely to see everyone at Grandparents afternoon on Monday.
Thank you to all of those parents who attended the Phonics Workshop.
Please ensure that you read with your child every night and try some of the phonics activities from the packs that were sent out during parents evening.
Here are some useful websites to use at home for learning phonics.
Also alphablocks on CBBC or Youtube.
On Wednesday 26th September members of the Blue Town Heritage Centre visited us to talk about Harty.

In Literacy we started our text for the term, Tiddler the Story Telling Fish.
We created a story map to help us remember the order of the story and then we rewrote the story as part of our BIG write.
Place Value is our unit for this term in maths.
We have been counting to 100 and finding one more than a number.
