Together we nurture the genius in everyone
|Lou Laurie||Class Teacher (Mon, Tue, Wednesday)|

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.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
This week we have been taking part in lots of transition activities and getting to know your children. We have talked about our school rules and made a class charter with promises we can keep for the rest of the year. In Maths, we have been looking at different ways of representing numbers to 10. We are really pleased with how well the children have settled into life in Year One.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT WEEK:
LITERACY – Phonics: zz, qu, ng Spelling words: buzz, fizz, jazz, quiz, queen, quack, sing, king, rang, bang. Please encourage your children to write these words using lead-in strokes.
We will be reading stories by Ian Beck and writing sentences using speech bubbles.
MATHS – We will be focussing on the language of greater than, less than and equal to. We will also introduce the inequality symbols < > = and use these to compare numbers.
UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD: We will be sharing stories of when we have been poorly, visited a doctor or spent time in a hospital. We will make Get Well cards and write prescriptions for each other.
HOMEWORK: Daily reading and practice of weekly spellings/ handwriting. Homework will go home on a Friday. Please return this by the following Wednesday.
REMINDERS: PLEASE CAN YOU BRING A TEDDY TO SCHOOL ON FRIDAY FOR OBSERVATIONAL DRAWINGS.
