What a fantastic start to the new school year! Year 1 have had a been working very hard and have adjusted well to year 1 from reception. They have been very receptive to their learning and have shown determination and resilience.
They have shown great engagement with our key text, SUPER DUPER YOU by Sophy Henn. So far they have explored a character and used nouns and adjectives to describe characters. We have also used our drama skills to act out a key event from the story.
The children are also investigating number. They are developing their skills by exploring and using different representations for numbers 0 – 10. During this unit, they have enjoyed hands on practical experience using tens frames, counters, number tracks and playing maths games.
They have started French lessons which they are enjoying. This is evident as at times the children answer the register in French ‘Bonjour!’.
Reading books and library books will be changed every Friday. Please ensure you read daily with your child and sign their reading journal. You can also enjoy books from home together.
Children will have PE every Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure they bring the correct PE kit.
We are looking forward to the year ahead and seeing the children grow even further in confidence.
Below, you see what we will be learning this half-term, as well as some activities you can be doing at home.
