The Y1 Team:
Reading: the children will continue to read twice a week in school. One of these sessions will now be guided reading. Many thanks to all parents, family members and friends who support with reading at home.
Monday: Spellings - word lists will be given out every fortnight with tests taking place on the Thursday of the second week.
Friday: Writing - this will either be sentence work or work linked to our topic.
The children will also have Maths homework each week but days will vary depending on what we are covering in class.
Welcome Back and Happy New Year!
We hope that everyone in Y1 and their family and friends had a wonderful Christmas holiday.
The Y1 team are really looking forward to the new term ahead as we have a very exciting topic:
Rumble in the Jungle!
What's happening in Year 1 this week?
13th January-17th January 2014
Our book of the week is: Handa's Surprise
On Tuesday we will be using lots of different fruit to make a delicious fruit salad and a smoothie.
Update: Everyone had lots of fun making their fruit salads and smoothies and learnt about lots of different fruits. Have a look at our photographs!
On Thursday we will be having a visit from a real life explorer who will be showing us lots of fantastic photographs and telling us what it is like to be an explorer in the jungle!
Update: We enjoyed listening to Mr Anderson who told us lots of interesting facts about the jungle and all the animals that live there.
Our Year 1 Class assembly will be on Friday 28th March at 9am. We hope that you can come along and support us and see all the interesting work that we have been doing as part of our Jungle topic!
