Welcome to Year One!
Teacher - Miss Maw
Teaching Assistant- Mrs Dawson
Happy New Year! We hope that 2019 brings great things and much happiness for everyone!
This term our Topic is ' We are going to the zoo!'
As we move into the Spring term our topic is all about amazing animals leading up to a fantastic visit to the zoo! Over the next half term the children will become animal scientists naming, labelling, sorting and grouping animals. The children will learn the vocabulary of mammals, amphibians, carnivores, omnivores, herbivores. We will also investigate different habitats for animals. The children will have a chance to think about their dream pets and how to look after them so they stay safe and happy. In Art we will be learning the skill of weaving making our own rainbow fishes with paper strips. In the middle of all this action we will stop and celebrate the Chinese new year. This year 2019 it is the year of the pig. A very busy half term but packed with fun!
Week beginning 21st January 2019
This week we will be continuing our learning about 'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell. We will be deciding what animal we would like from the zoo and start to plan an animal riddle.
Addition and the inverse Eg 2+8=10 8+2=10
Alder Class Reminders
We have at the moment a lot of missing jumpers and cardigans. Please help by clearly labelling EVERYTHING! If it has a name in it is so easy to find and get back to the right person.
If you have lost a jumper or cardigan Miss Maw has a green box in her classroom, please come in at the end of the day too have a look.
On a Monday afternoon- full PE kit is needed please.
All children need a named water bottle in school
Your child will bring home spellings after the October half term holiday
In Year One we just love to read- stories, Guided reading and individual reading! Please help us by making sure your child has their reading book and diary with them everyday. We like to write comments in your child's diary but it makes assessment records hard if they don't have it with them and you don't know they have read with an adult. Thank you!
We are very much looking forward to our trip to Whipsnade Zoo on the 14th February. If you haven't already paid please do this via Parent Pay. Any problems or questions regarding payment please see Miss or any member of the Key Sage 1 team.
