Year 1 Newsletter 28th April

28 April 2016Year 1

Dear Parents,

This week the children (and staff) have been excited to have Mrs Bennett back in class! We have been watching our space seeds grow and they are getting taller by the day. Please check out our Year 1 blog for photos.

Literacy – Next week we will be focussing on plants and non-fiction books. We will learn how to use a non-fiction book effectively and then label parts of a plant. We will also be thinking about what plants need to grow.

Maths – We will be focussing on time and 3D shape. Children will begin to tell the time on the hour and half past the hour. We will also be naming and describing common 3D shapes, using the correct mathematical vocabulary.

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

  • Talk about time at home with your child and what time daily events usually occur. Show the children different times on an analogue clock and discuss this
  • Practise writing days of the week in order.

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 relaxing Bank Holiday weekend.

Mrs Burkill and Mrs Bennett
