To make the experience of transition easier for the children, the Year 1 classes are run in a similar way to Reception, based on the Foundation Stage Principles with an emphasis on learning through play. As the year progresses and the children become more settled and mature we introduce more whole class teaching and independent group work.

DUE TO A CHANGE IN TIMETABELLING LADYBIRD CLASS WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE PE ON A TUESDAY BUT WILL ALSO HAVE IT ON THURSDAY. PLEASE CAN THE CHILDREN COME TO SCHOOL ON BOTH DAYS WEARING THEIR PE KITS?
WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
In phonics we learnt the alternative long vowel sounds ea, ey, e-e. We created rules: ea – middle sometimes end of word, ey – end of word, e-e – bossy e tells a letter to say its name. We have been learning about new and old toys and what they are made of and what they can do. We visited Richmond Park looking for signs of Autumn and used this as a stimulus for writing poetry and producing art work.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT WEEK:
In School – We will be learning about the countries that make up the UK and identifying them and labelling on the map. Do you know what these countries are? Can you find the UK on a map and identify the different countries? We will also be looking at how the weather changes throughout the year and in particular Autumn and Winter. Watch the weather forecast and identify which symbols represent which weather types.
In School – We will be learning about place value of numbers to 20. Can you recite the numbers to 20 correctly emphasising the pronunciation of the teen eg thirteen not thirty. Can you write these numbers making sure the tens number goes first?
Caterpillars – Wednesday
Ladybirds – Tuesday and Thursday
Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on this day.
Please ensure your child is bringing water every day.
Please look out for our letter explaining this terms special activities and school trips.
