I hope you had a wonderful winter break.
We've got an exciting Half Term ahead of us :)
In Maths, we will be looking at numbers to 20 and then numbers to 50. We will be investigating tens and ones, adding and subtracting.
In English, we will be looking at the book 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. We will be trying to learn parts of the story so listen out for your little storytellers at home!
We are also very excited to be starting our new Phonics Scheme, Read Write Inc.
Our Topic this Half Term is 'Poles Apart'. We will be finding out about the North and South Pole and learning about the different animals that live there.
Just a reminder that we are now instilling a fine of 50p per lost or damaged Reading Record, and £2 per lost of damaged Phonics Book, so please keep these safe. Water bottles must be kept out of Book Bags, as they often leak and result in a damaged book.
Spellings will be given out every Friday and we will have a spelling test every Thursday. Please help your child practise these as much as possible at home.
Mrs Mitchell and Pauline :)
This half term, our topic is 'School Days'.
We are so proud of our fantastic school and so happy to be a part of such a special place that we have decided to learn all about it.
We will be looking at all the things that make our school special and unique. We will also be travelling back in time and learning about what our school used to be like in the past!
Parents - if you went to Vittoria when you were a child then please let Mrs Mitchell know!
Throughout the half term we will be searching for signs of Autumn. Why don't you join in on your walk to school?
Year One have had an amazing first half term!
We have settled in really well and have made great progress with our topic Traditional Tales.
Please ask us about the stories we have been learning!
Year One is an important and fun year where we make the transition from Early Years to Key Stage One. I hope you will enjoy hearing what your child has been up to throughout the year.
We are lucky enough to have the PE coaches every Wednesday so please remember PE kits on that day.
We will change our reading books every Friday, ready for the weekend. Please make sure you sign your child's Reading Record after you have read together.
Please remember to put your child's name on their jumper so that they don't get lost :)
Welcome back everybody, I hope you had a safe and restful Summer Half Term. The year has flown by and we are in our final term of Year One!
This final Half Term, in Maths we are focusing on number, by revising our operations ( +, -, <, >) and refreshing our number bonds to 20 alongside looking at Place Value to 100.
In English we are looking at developing our writing style and extending and elongating our sentences with conjunctions.
Our Topic is Wonderful Women, and we are lucky enough to be looking at record breaker Ellen MacArthur, and Queen Elizabeth I.
P.E. will continue to be on a Friday, and Phonics Books and Reading Records will continue to be sent home regularly, so please ensure your child comes to school with a named Bookbag.
As always, we are making a real push for Phonics this term, and reading at home is a fundamental part of that. If you require the Username and Password for the OxfordOwl Reading Tree website, please let me know.
Please let me know if you need anything.
Miss Khan :)
