Reading books are changed every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday but can be changed daily if required. Please make sure reading books and diaries are in school every day.

We will read with your child as much as possible in school but it is incredibly important for them to read at home too.

Wow what a busy week we have had. We have learnt all about the seven continents, looked at the differences between two mammals and painted pictures of animals found in Africa. We have had a go at writing our own rhyming verse, linked to Hickory Dickory Dock. In maths we have been looking at groups of 10 and x amount more to make our teen numbers.
For homework this week, please continue to practise recognising and ordering numbers to 20. Spellings have also been sent home for the very first time, please help your child to learn how to write these words and send the spelling book back into school next Friday.

What a fabulous start to year 1. All the children have returned to school and settled back into the new routines very well, I am incredibly proud of them all!
This week we have been thinking about our 'Gospel' value which is FRIENDSHIP! We talked about how we are all special and how together with our friends we can do things extra special. We talked about what values a good friend has and what we can do to be a good friend. Each child then decorated a heart and gave this to their special friend.
Also, we have introduced our class Science topic all about ANIMALS! We looked at different animals people have as pets and set up a vets in our classroom. The Y1 vets surgery is now open! If you have any pets at home would you please email me a photograph of them.
In Maths we have been making number lines to 20.
Homework- This weeks homework is based on reading and ordering numbers to twenty. The children who need to practice recognising and ordering numbers to 20 will bring home number cards. If you need to borrow some scissors and a glue stick, please ask at home-time.
