This week – 23.1.17

Hello!

This week, we have started to look at an island and its features in Geography. Today, through Drama we explored features of an island and collected together lots of adjectives and expanded noun phrases to describe what we could see, taste, smell, touch and hear!

In Maths, we are counting, reading and writing numbers to 40 and it would be great if you could practise this at home! Ask your child to tell you how many tens and ones there are in the numbers too!

Many thanks,

The Year One Team

 

 

 

Learning this week!

Hello,

Again, we have set the children Maths homework this week! Please ensure homework books are in on Wednesday.

Last week in Maths, we moved onto looking at the days of the week and the months in the year! Please talk to your child about general activities they do in a day or events which take place during the year.

We hope the children told you lots about a storm, so we are ready to write an amazing description of a storm in Literacy this week.

The children are all settled back into school and are working extremely hard! You should be proud of them.

Many thanks,

The Year One Team

 

Welcome back!

Hello,

Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a lovely Christmas and we would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

It has been great to have the children back into school and we are ready for our exciting Spring term.

This term we have a whole school topic based around a Shakespeare play called ‘The Tempest’. Last week, we began to investigate objects that we found in a treasure chest, which contained many artefacts from a ship. We thought about where they might have come from and why they are important. We will continue to explore ‘The Tempest’ by looking at sounds and objects from a storm to help us write a setting description of a sea storm.

For the next two weeks in Maths, we will be looking closely at a clock. We are looking at the hands on a clock, reading the time and drawing times accurately on the clock face. Please encourage children to look at clocks at home and on any outside adventures! It would be great if you could talk about daily activities that you do at different times in the day, and show them on the clock.

Homework books need to be in on Wednesday (11th January) and we are excited to read book reviews and see the children’s favourite place to read!

Please also ensure PE kits are in school and named where possible.

If you have any concerns or questions, please speak to a member of staff in the year one team.

 

Many thanks,

The Year One Team
