Phonics screening words 10.5.19
Due to a technical issue I was unable to print a copy of a practise test this week. However, you can generate one online by going to http://www.oxfordphonicschecksupport.co.uk/.
I will attach a copy of samples underneath on PDF to use too.
Many thanks for your support with this.
Could everyone please check that their child took home the correct wellies after Forest School on Wednesday as we have a pair missing.
Apologies for not sending home the homework books this weekend. We have had a busy day finishing off some fantastic writing this morning and making boats for Lego Man this afternoon, as well as 2 birthdays!
The books will be sent out early next week and can be kept until after half term.
Please continue to learn words for the class assembly. We are really looking forward to sharing it with you.
Our Topic this term is called 'Walk on the Wild Side' where we are looking at animals and classifying them into groups.
Our Core Text is Winnie and Wilbur: Winnie the Witch. We will be writing information texts about cats and other animals as well as inventing our own Winnie and Wilbur story.
Firstly, an ENORMOUS THANK YOU on behalf of all the Year 1 staff for all your kind presents, cards and wishes. They were very much appreciated and we hope you all enjoyed a lovely break together.
The children have come back well rested with lots of energy and really positive attitudes in Term 3 - it is great to see!
Our topic for Term 3 is called Scrumdiddlyumptious! We are looking at food, with particular focus on:
- Traditional foods in the UK
- Whether our favourite foods are healthy or unhealthy
- Comparing how we get our food to 200 years ago (linked to learning about Grace Darling)
- Designing and writing recipes for healthy fruit snacks
On Monday 11th February, we will be making fruit snacks in class that the children will have planned. Parents and carers are invited to join us from 2.50pm to share what we make in our Y1 Classroom Cafe! As it is also School Enterprise Week that week, any donations would be greatly received towards our Toilet Twinning Project.
Our English text this term is The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch, and we will be focusing on writing instructions and our own stories about naughty seagulls!
On Wednesday 13th February from 2.50pm, parents and carers are invited in for our Big Read where we will all be reading together, sharing our favourite stories. More details to follow.
Thank you for all your support in home learning and sending this back in on time. A general reminder of when things need to be in:
Our PE session with FutureStars is still on Tuesday afternoons (Dance this term), however, please have your PE kits in school every day as we often do PE on other days too.
Our value this term is PERSEVERANCE.
Year 1 took part in the Hour of Code - an international event to encourage children to explore coding.
It was great fun using a sequence of blocks to get our character to more around the screen.
We played on Code Spark Academy - Coding with the Foos https://codespark.com/hour-of-code but there are lots more self-guided tutorials that can be used at home too!

No homework books were sent home.
Please continue to read and practise spellings. Sing the Nativity songs.
