Year 1

Update for Week beginning : 20.03.2017


English and Maths information:

In Maths, we have been practising doubling and halving numbers. We have had fun using water to measure the capacity of different containers. All the children were able to put them in size order from smallest to largest. We encouraged the children to use the vocabulary empty, full, half full, quarter full, less and more than. The children also read and recorded the volume of water using millilitres.

Our new text for English this week was ‘Dogger’. The story is about a little boy who looses his favourite soft toy. On Monday, the children created Lost Posters for our class pets Bongo and Digby. These were displayed around school……..luckily they were found safe and Sound in Year 2! The children enjoyed writing a description about their favourite soft toy which they brought in from home. We were very impressed with the standard of writing, the children showed us that they could use adjectives and some remembered to use conjunctions too!


Other curriculum news:

In gymnastics this week the children explored using different parts of their bodies to explore the use of space both near to and away from the floor. Children learnt how to take off, land safely and improve their jump.

General Information:

Games – Thank you to the parents that have sent in outdoor games kit. We will be doing outdoor games every Monday (weather permitting) so if your child still does not have jogging bottoms and a jumper please make sure they bring them into school next week.

Reading Record – Please make sure that your child has their reading record everyday. Some parents are writing messages in the reading record but we would prefer you to write a separate note and give it to your child to hand to us to ensure we see them.

Homework – Weekly homework is sent out on a Friday, please complete by the following Wednesday.

Thank you.

Mrs Hurley, Mrs Jacobs and Miss Taylor
