Spring 1 Week 3 Update:

We have had a busy week in Year 1. We have all produced some fabulous writing based on our story On Sudden Hill. We have enjoyed exploring the phrases 'Big Friends' and understanding what it means to feel strange. In maths we have started looking at numbers to 40. We have had fun counting forwards and backwards across 40 and we have enjoyed using different resources to create numbers. In science we enjoyed exploring where materials come from. We couldn't believe it when we found out that metal comes from rock and cotton comes from a plant!

Small Reminders: Reading Books need to be in their book bags EVERYDAY! Earrings must be taken out for PE please. Your child needs a named water bottle EVERYDAY!

For Homework this week please watch these two phonics videos: https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/LowAbRgK/4Jm44vYL https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/NgKfrSkh/2zxFXBzP

Parent support - how to help your child

We have been asked for ideas on how to support writing at home. Here is a video to give you some advice on developing writing in year 1. If there is anything else you need support with, please send us an email and we will put some ideas onto the webpage to help you at home.
