Year 1

This Week’s Learning

Week commencing Monday 23rd November

This week in Literacy we will continue to explore our ‘whole school big write’. The children are going to use their creativity and imaginations to write their own stories to go with the mysterious authors pictures.

In Maths we will look at teen numbers and introduce place value.

In Science we will continue our enquiry into animals including humans.

In Topic we will continue our investigation into toys from the past.

In the Wildlife Garden we will investigate hibernation.

In PE we will work on multi-skills and basketball. Please get your child to come into school wearing their PE kits on Wednesday and Friday.

Please make sure your child’s reading journal and levelled reader are in their school bags every day so that their teachers can read with them.

On Monday, we will be setting tasks on Mathletics and Reading Eggs or Fast Phonics. This will be linked to your child’s learning for the week.

Ongoing Learning

This week we will be sending home two books. One will be for your child to read and the other will be a story that you can read and enjoy together. The year 1 team will also begin reading with your child each week. Please ensure that your child has their reading journal and levelled book packed each day so that they can enjoy this experience. Reading journals will be used as a communication between parents and teachers so please write in them and share your perspective of your child’s learning as they grow.

Your child’s Reading Egg and Mathletics  logins and passwords will be at the back of the reading journal. These are great tools to support your child’s developing literacy and maths knowledge but please engage with them at your child’s own pace. This year you will find Reading Eggs has also been updated with a program called ‘Fast Phonics’. This is an engaging way to support your child’s sound recognition and reading. More information about this will be coming out shortly.
