This week in Year 1, we have been focusing on being ready to learn and showing respect to each other.
In maths, we have been continuing to focus on numbers to 20 and representing them on a number line. Everyday, we practise counting backwards and forwards from 20.
We know that capital letters are really important in our writing. We have been using capital letters at the start of our sentences. We will be continuing to explore this next week. Please ask your child if they can re-tell The Gingerbread Man story as we have been learning it off by heart.
During our curriculum time, we have explored our Forest School site, investigated the properties of different materials, identified physical and human features around where we live and started to recognise that ‘Creation’ is the beginning of the bible.
The children have worked so hard this week and I hope you all enjoy a restful weekend.

Another busy week; I am sure lots of you have had tired children, this week. This is because they are learning so much!
In Literacy, we have been practising writing sentences using capital letters and full stops. We have even been trying to think of words that have our new phonics sounds in them, e.g. ‘ay’ and ‘ou’.
In Maths, we have been focusing on counting and recognising numbers to 20. We started to use a tens frame to represent teen numbers. Please ask your child what each digit represents e.g. in the number 16, the 1 represents 10 and the 6 represents 6 ones.
In our curriculum time this week, we became scientists. We all took part in a material hunt around school to see how many different materials we could spot. We were amazed at how many different materials the trim trail was made out of. In PE, we have explored different rolls and continued practising our rugby skills. In R.E. the children are thinking about the question, “Who do Christians say made our world?” They have sequenced and re-told the Creation Story from Genesis, the first book in the Bible. They have thought about what Christians think God is like.
The children are becoming increasingly more independent and this is great to see. They have worked so hard in all aspects of school and I am excited to see what next week holds.

Wow, what a week we have had in Year 1!
The children have settled really well into their new classroom and starting their new routines. We have explored all of our new areas including sharing books in the reading area. Humphrey, our class hippo, has been looked after incredibly well by lots of children.
This week, we have begun to introduce our new learning such as morning work, Maths and Literacy. The children have really impressed me with their number knowledge and formation of different letters. We have enjoyed two PE lessons this week and the children have shown their independence when getting changed (no one has lost a piece of clothing YET!).
I am so impressed with how the children have coped this week and I know this is going to be a great year.
