A very warm welcome to the new Year One class, you have been an absolute pleasure to teach for the first 3 weeks back!
Our topic for the term is toys we, so far, have enjoyed a visit from Tommy Top hat who brought in lots of different Victorian toys for us to play with. We even learnt how to make our own whizzers and paper helicopters.
In English, we are reading stories about superheroes. So far, we have read ‘Super Daisy’. Next, we are reading ‘Supertato’. Alongside this, we will be creating our very own vegetable hero who will help us explore lots of writing genres, such as: lists, predictions, descriptive writing and stories.
In Mathematics we are diving into place value. So far, we are covering numbers 0-20. We are practising our number fluency each day, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Lots of practise at home will really help build up our confidence!
Home-learning is now being set on a Tuesday and must be back for the following Tuesday. Please make sure all sheets given are stuck into books and home-learning comes in each week in the plastic wallet provided. Your child’s spelling tests are every Tuesday.
Here’s to a great start in Year One, long may it continue!
