Wow. This week we have produced our own videos in puppet pals retelling the story of the ‘GIANT JAM SANDWICH’. The children have really got to grips with the story and will be writing their own versions next week for the school magazine.
What another great week of learning in year one!
The children have worked extremely hard in English. They have been working on their acrostic poems all week. Each day the children worked on a different letter in the word ‘Spring’ to help them collate their ideas for their final piece of writing today. Make sure you take a look on Monday!
In maths the children have been recognising mathematical symbols and learning the different mathematical names for them. For example the word ‘addition’ can be sometime written as; more than, altogether, add, in total and plus.
In phonics the children have been revisiting the sounds; air, ear , igh and ure. If you are unsure of any of these sounds, Mr Thorne on youtube is great at explaining how they should be pronounced. If you need any phonetical advice please don’t hesitate to ask. We are more than happy to guide and advice.
Just a quick reminder that it is the school trip on Wednesday. All permission slips are due back by Monday afternoon at the latest please.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
See you Monday
Next week (Wednesday 15th March) we will be heading to the Mosque. We still have quite a few trip letters outstanding. Please can I have all the trip letters by Friday 10th March. If there are any parents who could accompany us, please speak to me.
Just in case you missed it or want to watch it again.
We are holding a “Book Themed Bake Off” on Tuesday 28th February. Cakes should be inspired by your favourite book. Miss Atkins and Mr Palmer will be judging the cakes on the day and all cakes will be sold in the Turney Road playground after school. All money made from the sale will go towards much needed repairs to the Library Bus. Please leave cake donations at the school office. Thank you!
I bet the North Pole is inundated with post this week from year 1 with the amount of Christmas lists they have been writing!
The children have been working on using commas in the correct place when writing letters. We have also revisited capital letters and full stop this week.
In maths the children have been using pictures to create their own number sentences using addition and subtraction.
