Hi Year 1!
We have been learning to tell the time to o'clock this week, so please ask your child to tell the time at home; telling the time to the half-hour comes next. We've also had our last spelling test. Well done to all those who have learnt their tricky words this year. Please keep reading with your child; it's important for them to be read to as well as to read, and a lovely way to bond together.
Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Miller
Well done to Pollyanna for some great ideas in her creative writing, and to Cooper for some very methodical and accurate maths!
Well done to Martha; she's this week's dojo winner!
This term, we will be studying growth and development of living things. We will be growing sunflowers and measuring their growth. We will also be watching the magnificent metamorphosis of caterpillars as they turn into butterflies. We will make comparisons between the life cycles of birds, amphibians and butterflies.
