Year 1 Newsletter 21st April

21 April 2016Year 1

Dear Parents,

This week we received a very special package – seeds from space! The RHS Campaign for School Gardening has partnered with the UK Space Agency to embark on an ‘out of this world’ project – Rocket Science. After applying to take part, we were very lucky to be chosen to undertake this very important experiment! Please check our Year 1 blog for photos and more information about Rocket Science.

Literacy – Next week we will be sharing the book “A Year in Percy’s Park.” We will think about the seasons with a focus on adjectives and verbs, with lots of fun activities planned around this.

Maths – We will be focussing on adding 11 to 2 digit numbers and different methods we can use to quickly calculate answers.

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

  • Have a look at the RHS School Gardening website to find out more about our Rocket Science experiment and discuss this with your child.
  • Plant some of your own seeds at home and start a growth chart so that you record how tall your plants grow.

CHANGE TO SWIMMING TIMES: Mrs Burkill’s class will now be swimming on a Monday and Mrs Bennett’s class will remain swimming on a Tuesday. Please check parentmail for swimming pool updates to find out if we will be swimming next week.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Burkill
