Dear parents and careers,

We have had another fantastic week of learning here in year 1!

We have been really busy bag making over the last few weeks! Happily, our sewing projects are almost ready for our showcase next week. Why not ask your child to explain how they made their bag? You could even have a go at making one at home….this one does not even require any sewing!

In English, our focus book has been ‘The Robot and the Bluebird’ by David Lucas. Children have used this text to learn to use ‘and’ in a sentence; to use interesting openers for their sentences and to use expanded noun phrases. Click here for a sheet of sentence openers you can use to practice with at home.

In Maths, we have been learning to make equal groups. The children have also made arrays using counters. Arrays are visual representations of numbers using rows and columns. Click here to review equal groups and  arrays at home.

In Phonics, we have been learning different spellings for the /ar/ sound.

We have identified the -ar- spellings

a –  can’t, grasp, bath

al –calm, palm, balm

ar – car, far, jar

au – laugh, draught

Please help your child with spelling these words at home and as an extra challenge, write a few sentences using to include some.

Revisit-Here are the sounds taught so far. Please review these with your child and continue to regularly revisit to consolidate learning.

Other Notices

Please send your child into school with a clearly named bottle of sun-screen lotion. This should be applied before coming to school and not at the classroom door as this then delays the start to our day. All sun hats to be clearly named too please. Both lotion and hats should remain at school for easy access. Please do not leave lotion in school bags.

Reminder for DT Showcase- Showcase letter to parents

We hope you all have a restful weekend in the sunshine!
