Wow what a busy Spring Term we have had! The children have been ensuring that our sentences have adjectives in them and really trying hard to understand different characters through profiling and description activities. We have also completed various Maths Challenges, specifically using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Remember that whatever Numeracy task we complete in Year 1, we always use resources to help us and this style of learning should be mirrored at home.
The children's phonics are developing all the time, please continue to read with your child as often as possible. Chopping the words up and then blending them back together remains paramount for your child's development.
In class, we have read 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl and have now moved onto 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by the same author. Reading stories with your child, which are beyond their phonic knowledge, is not only important for quality family time but also exposes your child to new vocabulary which is vital for progression.
Our Easter topic has been met with awe and wonder. We have learnt about new life that can be seen in God's Wonderful World. We have grown cress, learning that seeds or bulbs need to be 'woken up' and some of the different life cycles that happen either in Spring or throughout the year.
Like the rest of the School, our Christian Values underpin the way we treat each other and help us to make informed choices. The children in Year 1 each take part in a daily phonics session as well as Numeracy and Literacy lessons each morning. The children also learn about various topics across the year. Our long term plan can be seen on our Class Page section of our school website.
Don't forget to read the weekly orange newsletter detailing items for the whole school and the Year 1 door for quick reminders specific to our daily routines. Also please remember to send your child's water bottle back in every Monday after the weekend.
Thank you for your continued support.
As part of our new Life topic, we took our own photographs on a Spring Walk and discovered some of the beautiful living things in our school grounds. We also planted our own cress seeds.
Some of us decided that plants need
And most importantly LOVE. Without God's love and love from each other, we cannot grow either.
