The children have been working very hard this week!
In maths, we have been doing lots of counting activities. Children have been counting forwards, backwards and from different starting points. We enjoyed using the cubes to represent numbers.
The children have loved our story this week, Superkid.
The children have created themselves as superheros, writing about what makes them super! They gave themselves super hero names, like Amazing Amber and Great Gabriel. :)
Have a SUPER weekend.

What a busy first week back! We have been so impressed with how the children have settled in! They have taken all the changes in their stride. However, we are still working towards making our classroom feel 'like home.' We have had time to explore; finding out about different areas of the classroom, we have been given our own home places to sit in and we have taken on extra responsibilities. Lots of us have helped with the daily jobs in the classroom.
This week the whole school have been learning about a special book called, 'The Colours of Home.' We have done lots of artwork based on the book. Firstly, we did some art showing what Hassan's home looked like. Then we did pictures of our own homes using wax crayons. Look out for our work taking pride of place in the corridor.
What a great first week back. Class 3, I am proud of you all!
Our daily timetable:
Morning- Phonics, English and Maths
Afternoon- Handwriting, Group read and a variety of subjects using our 'Rainbow Curriculum of Greasley'.
In Year 1, the children have a weekly spelling test consisting of 6 words. A spelling list will be stuck in their homework book on a Friday and then they will be tested on the following Friday. This list will be made up of words following spelling patterns that are included in the year 1 curriculum. It will also include words from our year 1 word list. (See below) Children will get the opportunity to practise these at school in guided spelling but, as always, practise at home is always beneficial.
We will also send homework on a Friday and it would be great if you could bring this back by the following Thursday.
Reading books will be changed weekly, this will allow your child to read their book more than once which will develop their fluency and comprehension skills.
Half termly, we will test your child on the 40 statutory National Curriculum words for Year 1 which are:
