Year 1 Newsletter 14th January

14 January 2016Year 1

Dear Parents,

We have had a fun week exploring in the woods and writing our adventure stories. The children explored places all over the world – including deserts and jungles!

Parent Involvement – We will be having a parent involvement morning on Friday 22nd January. The children will be creating a boat for exploring. Today we have sent a letter and reply slip out. Please complete and return, even if you are not able to attend by Monday 18th January.

Literacy – Next week we will be using a great non-fiction book called “What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?” The children will learn interesting facts about many wild animals. We will be focussing on verbs (doing words).

Maths – We will be looking at coins and their values. We will be using them to add and find different amounts. The children will role play using a shop and till and work out how to pay for different items.

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

Please remember to read regularly with your child at home. We have noticed that since returning from the Christmas break some children are only reading once a week or not at all. Please ensure that you record each time you read with your child in their reading record book. We really value your support in this.

As a reminder, if you have friends or family who live outside the UK, please bring in any photos or information for us to share and create classroom displays.

Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Bennett and Mrs Burkill
