Teaching Assistant - Mrs Drummond.
This year across the school we will be focusing on reading and how important it is for all children to develop a love of reading for themselves. Reading to your child and hearing them read is very important at this early age and we would encourage you to try to read with your children as much as possible.
Our topic this half term is 'Bob the Builder' and we are looking at construction.
This week will be dedicated to learning about our 'thrive' values and our new 'Diamond' behaviour policy. There will a big emphasis on what is expected of the children and the rewards and consequences surrounding it. Parents are invited to a short talk about our new system on Tuesday afternoon at 3pm in the classroom. During the week the children will take part in activities to help them learn about our 'learning power' characters. We hope the children will enjoy learning about 'Hector, Daisy, Kevin and Colin' and how they can help the children with their learning.
Week beginning 16th September
This week we will be learning about:
Maths- Place value- counting, writing numbers and representing numbers in different ways.
English- Reading and responding to the text ‘The Three Little Pigs’.
Week beginning 23rd September
The photocopier is now working so homework will be sent out Monday 23rd. In maths the children will continue with number and place value and in English we will be sequencing the story of the Three Little Pigs. Diamond time went well on Friday.
Please remember to send in a water bottle for your child as we only have a few cups in the classroom and it is starting to take a long time to give children drinks if they don't have their own. Please also remember reading books/reading diaries and thrive booklets need to be in school everyday and all children need a named PE kit in school daily.
Week beginning 30th September
This week we will finish writing our Three Little Pigs story in English, consolidating our work on number formation and place value and continuing to look at the artwork of artist Paul Klee. As the weather is now changeable please could we ask that all children have a waterproof coat as we do try to go outside unless it is raining really hard.
On Wednesday 2nd October we have the 'welcome to Year One' talk to give you a little bit more information about the transition from Early Years to Year One. We look forward to seeing you then.
Week beginning 7th October
This week we will be looking at number bonds to 10 and simple addition in maths and in English we will begin to look at instructions and instruction writing. In topic we will finish our art work by making our own painting in the style of artist Paul Klee.
On Thursday morning we are going to St Mary's Church for our harvest celebration and all parents are welcome to join us at the church.
Week beginning 14th October
How quickly this first half term has gone! The children have settled into Year 1 so well and seem to be enjoying themselves. In maths this week we will be continuing with our number bonds and simple addition work and in English we will be writing our own instructions. On Thursday we have our 'big build' day and we hope the children will enjoy designing and making some interesting construction models!
