Y1 Friday 11th September 2020– Looking Back & Forth

Looking back: 

What a wonderful first week in Year 1. I am so impressed with how all the class have settled into the new routines and took everything in their stride.

This week we have done some practical work in Maths based on number recognition, writing and counting.

In English we have used capital letters and full stops when writing captions about ourselves.

Year 1 – Pupils’ Highlights:

√ Counting and writing numbers in Maths.

√ Reading interesting books.

√ Making models with K’Nex.

√ Creating structures with Lego.

√ First piece of writing in Year 1 using capital letters and full stops.

√ Learning new sounds in phonics and using our ‘chopping arms’ to sound out the words before blending to read them.

√ Team building games in PE.

√ Hiit and Zumba sessions.

√ Drawing our ‘all about me’ jigsaw pieces.

√ Matching pictures and captions.

√ Solving trick jigsaws.

√ Listening to stories.

Family discussion questions:

  • Can you remember the sounds: ‘ear’, air’ and ‘ure’?
  • What numbers comes after 8?
  • What number comes before 15?

Looking forward:

Next week we will be looking at labels, lists and captions; using Not a Stick book to stimulate our writing.

In Maths we will be sorting and counting in objects.

We will find out what we know about our bodies and toys from the past before starting our Science and History topics, as well as creating masterpieces for our first class display.

Thanks for your support
