Dear parents and careers,

Our children have welcomed in the sunshine and enjoyed a fantastic week in Year 1.

In English, we have continued with our focus book ‘The sky garden’ by L. Sarah. Children have used this text to learn how to construct a story using the introduction (character and setting), build up, problem and finally resolution (solving the problem). Children have taken great pride in reading their stories aloud. There are two story sheets attached if you would like to work with your child to create a story to share in class.

In Maths, we have been learning to count up and down in 2’s 5’s and 10’s. Looking at patterns on a 50 and 100 square and solving word problems. Attached are some maths sheets to practice. Wk 4 Maths

 

In Phonics, we have been learning different spellings for the /ue/ sound.

We have identified the -ue- spellings

ue- due,   argue, cue

ew- few, new, stew

u-e –huge, tune, use

u-unit, unite, universe

Please help your child with spelling these words at home and as an extra challenge, write a few sentences using to include some.

Revisit-Here are the sounds taught so far. Please review these with your child and continue to regularly revisit to consolidate learning.

Other Notices

We have finally had some lovely sunshine! Please send your child into school with a clearly named bottle of sun-screen lotion. This should be applied before coming to school and not at the classroom door as this then delays the start to our day. All sun hats to be clearly named too please. Both lotion and hats should remain at school for easy access. Please do not leave lotion in school bags.

Reminder for DT Showcase- Showcase letter to parents

We hope you all have a restful weekend in the sunshine!
