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.

CALLING ALL PARENTS AND CARERS OF CATERPILLAR CLASS! We still need parents to help hear readers for half an hour a week. If you can spare the time please let Mrs Laurie know ASAP. THANK YOU.
Christmas with the Aliens-WOW! We are so proud of ALL the year one children for putting on such a fantastic show on Wednesday. They all worked incredibly hard and we are sure you loved it as much as we did.
Don't forget School closes next Thursday at 2pm
WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
This week we have been busy performing our show. We also talked about the Christmas story and sequenced pictures to retell the story in order. We have also taken part in lots of Christmas craft activities and updated our phonic assessments.
In Maths we have continued assessing the children on the areas we have covered throughout the term.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING AFTER NEXT WEEK:
Next week we will be completing individual assessments with all children. We will also be getting into the Christmas spirit by making a variety of Christmas crafts and playing board games together. On Thursday morning as a special treat and to say well done for working so hard this term we will watch a Christmas movie.
HOMEWORK: Daily reading practise. Maths-addition or missing number problem homework. We will send home a list of all the common exception (tricky) words that the children have been learning this term. This is the last spelling homework this term-please do not feel this has to be completed by next week-please return homework books in January.
REMINDERS: Some children are returning their books daily. Please can your child only return their reading books after they have confidently finished them with an adult at home. Don’t forget to learn your tricky word trucks if you have them!
