YEAR 1 WEEKLY REVIEW

Review of the week ending the 4th of April  2019

English:

This week we wrote our stories   of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We used the pictures as well as our new vocabulary posters to support our writing and ensured the stories included some interesting vocabulary.

Maths:

In Maths we learnt what it means to double a number. We also revisited what we have learnt so far this term and practised number bonds to 10 and 20 as well as working on missing number in number sentences.

Thank you for a wonderful Spring term and all your support. It has been a very busy term and the children have worked very hard..

In Summer term we begin preparing children for the transition into Year 2. This means we will be doing  whole class teaching  oppose to group work to increase children's independence and familiarise them with the more formal structure of Year 2.. This worked well last year and we feel that our children are ready for the next step,

Have a wonderful Easter Break.

With best wishes

Of note:

 We will be having our Theme Day at the end of the first week on Friday  the 26th of April..

This term's Theme Day is Plants and Gardening and the children do not need to dress up however we would encourage them to wear 'gardening clothes' that they don't mind getting dirty.

 

 Take home colour books:

Please remember that we are asking the children to return and change their colour books on Wednesdays during the soft opening time.

This should simplify the process for everyone as Homework and colour books are to be returned together on the same day. This way we can ensure that all children read and change their books regularly. We have many keen readers in Year 1 who currently change their books more than once a week. They will be able to read the same amount, however we would ask them to choose their 2-3 books on Wednesday and swap again in a week’s time.

Water and Fruit

Children are welcome to bring in a clearly labelled water bottle which they can access throughout the day. A fresh piece of fruit is available for each child every playtime.

Growth Books

During PSHCE lessons children record their learning in Growth Books which they will use as they move up through the school. We would like to ask for some photographs of children (as babies, toddlers etc.) to decorate the front covers of their books – thank you very much for your support in this.

Have a lovely weekend.
