Year 1 Meet the Teacher Newsletter

 

To address feedback from parents and to help you further support your child’s learning we are going to use the website to keep you up to date on our maths focus and writing focus throughout the projects. These do sometimes run over a few weeks to help the children to become secure with their understanding of a given concept.

Our maths focus for week beginning 18th March will be ‘making arrays using equal groups of columns and rows’.

Our writing focus for week beginning 18th March will be ‘writing a letter and using compound sentences’.

In handwriting, we will be introducing the top join, for example ‘oo’ and ‘ow’

Project updates and Home Learning

Fire Fire outcome!

The Year 1 team were all overwhelmed with the feedback from the outcome and want to thank you all for coming along and getting stuck into each of the activities. It was great to see the children teach you the techniques and skills needed to complete the activities (some of you weren’t able to get a word in – we think we may have some future teachers among the classes!)

 

 

This half term has been filled with lots more learning which we have all loved being involved in! We hope that the children have told you about our project and all the work we have been doing 🙂

We had a Maths Measuring Week at the start of the term where we looked at different units of measure, ‘longer’ and ‘shorter’ and how to estimate, order and compare. Here are a few pictures of us measuring and ordering objects around the classroom.

 

 

Our most recent project has been ‘Fire! Fire!’ and we have been getting stuck into diary writing, painting, sketching and much more, we will upload some photos after our outcome as we don’t want you to see our fantastic work before you visit our museum exhibition!

The Year 1 team would like to thank you for all of your hard work that has gone into building the houses that will be a part of our very own Pudding Lane fire after half term. They really are amazing – it almost seems a shame to burn them!

We would also like to take the opportunity to thank you for encouraging your children to practice the spellings we have been sending home – we can already see such good improvements in the children’s writing.

Our PE days are Mondays and Fridays.

Our Library day is on Thursdays and our Maths Library day will be confirmed soon.

Our Fire! Fire! outcome is on Thursday 14th February. Newts exhibition opens at 9:15am and Frogs exhibition opens at 1:45pm
