Welcome To Year 1
Our topic for the autumn term is 'It's great to be me!'
We have a mine themed role play area for the children to complete various activities which are linked to their learning.
This term in Literacy we are studying the fiction story 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'
The literacy activities will include: Exploring wow words to describe characters and settings, ordering the story, thinking about characters feelings at different points in the story and creating a wanted poster for the Evil Queen.
In numeracy we will be having a heavy focus on number this term. We are practising reading and writing our numbers before ordering them. Later in the term we will begin looking at place value.
P.E will take place on Thursdays and Fridays for both classes. Please can all parents be reminded to remove earrings on these days. If you are providing children with new PE kits, could you please name them as it is difficult to return them if they get misplaced. PE will be gymnastics and real PE.
Reading books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please continue to read with your child on a daily basis and encourage them to talk about what they have read, to support their understanding of the text.
Spellings and homework will start after the half term. More information on this will be handed out in the near future.
Just a quick reminder- As the cold weather is fast approaching, could all children bring in coats, hats, gloves and scarves. Please make sure they are all labelled clearly with your child's name to prevent anybody losing their belongings.
Thank you for all your support.
Mrs Reynolds and Miss Ballaam
