Year 1 Newsletter 10th March

10 March 2016Year 1

Dear Parents,

The children have particularly enjoyed learning more about space this week. We have found out lots of information about the planets in our solar system. We are really impressed with how much the children already know about space and how keen they are to find out more! We are looking forward to dressing up tomorrow for our World Book Day and seeing what characters the children have decided to be.

Literacy – Next week we will be focussing on Spring Poetry. We will share poems about Spring and think of lots of ways to describe this time of year. Together as a class we will write our own Spring Poem.

Maths – We will be continuing to learn our number bonds to 10 and 20 (e.g. 7 + 3 = 10, 18 + 2 = 20 etc). We will use our number bonds knowledge to help us bridge 10 e.g. 7 + 4 = 11. The children will have lots of exciting challenges and activities to try out.

At home – A few ideas for you to try at home this week:

  • If you go out for a walk, look out for the signs of Spring and talk about these with your child.

You will receive a letter in your child’s reading record book today informing you about a research project which will be undertaken by Cat Gaukroger (a volunteer in Mrs Burkill’s class). We would appreciate it if you could take the time to read this information and if you would like to take part please return the reply slip to us by tomorrow morning.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Bennett and Mrs Burkill
