Welcome to the Year 1 Class Page
The children have had another super week at school and we are so impressed with how well they are settling to their new routines. It’s lovely to see them growing in confidence in all aspects of school life. As we are spending more time at our tables it is important that we have ‘brain breaks’ throughout the day. You can join in with the one we have been doing this week (Boom Chicka Boom) by clicking here.
In our Maths this week we have continued looking at Number and Place Value to 10. This week we have focused on representing numbers in different ways (on a ten frame, on a number line, in words, in numerals and in pictures etc). We have also used resources to count one more and one less. As a warm up for our Maths lessons we have enjoyed joining in with Jack Hartmann counting 1 – 30 and 30 – 1 while completing exercises. Your child continue practising counting with Jack Hartman by following this link.
In our Phonics we are continuing to practise our sounds and developing our confidence in using them for reading (blending) and writing (segmenting). We are also concentrating hard on forming our letters correctly and placing them in the right position on the line. This sheet shows how each letter should be formed.
Our spellings this week are Phase 2 (Letters and Sounds) tricky words. These are words that the children are not able to spell using their phonics. They are also known as common exception words. Click here for this week’s spelling list.
Our shared reading book for the week beginning 21 September is: My Best Friend, Bob by Georgie Ripper and our reading objective for the week is: to make predictions about what might happen next at different points in the story. Please continue to read with your child at home – and remember to tick the reading chart each time! Please remind your child to let us know if they need to change their home reading book (they are able to do this on any day of the week).
We will begin our topic work next week. You can read our curriculum news letter here.
Our P.E days will continue to be on a Thursday and a Friday so the children will need to come in their P.E kit on those days (trainers can be left at school ready for additional outdoor activities such as the Daily Mile.)
This week Mrs Tovell came into class to present Rainbow Certificates to Isabel and Lily – Well done!
Please do email me if you have any questions or concerns and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
