A very warm welcome to year 1!
We hope that you have had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are very excited to start in year 1!
Our topic this term is space and we have some very exciting things planned during immersion week. We will be floating through space in our very own classroom space station. While doing this we will be learning about astronauts, what it might be like in space and even discover some moon rocks!
As we learn about space, we will also be making sure that we are aware of what is happening around us on planet earth. We will be watching BBC Newsround every morning so as to help us gain knowledge of what is happening in the countries around us.
This year we will be handing out maths booklets based on the work we have been doing in class. These will go out on a Monday and returned the following Monday.
The reading challenge. The children need to read at least four times a week for ten weeks to receive their reading badge at the end of the term. Please record when you read in the Partnership book as then we know when to change the book.
Core subject information
We will be having our immersion days for the first two days of this term. The children will be taking part in many different activities based on our space topic.
Over the next two weeks we will be building our understanding of poetry and learning all about rhyming words! It's cool to learn poetry at school! :)
We will continue to focus on place value for the next 2 weeks of numeracy. We will be looking at getting to know our greater than, smaller than and equal to signs as well as how to use a number line. There is also lots of fun to be had when we do some outdoor ordinal number learning. Who will take first place? :)
