Year 1 2020 - 2021

This week, we have read a little more of Toys In Space and practised our reading skills on “field Friday” with an orienteering course that required us to rearrange sentences from the text – this was a lot of fun and saw some great teamwork! Our maths has been very practical this week with a focus on volume and capacity. We thoroughly enjoyed making magic potions!

In our Topic and art lessons, we continued with the theme of space and the night sky. We found out about the astronaut Tim Peake and started some artwork based on Starry Night by Van Gogh.

Much to our excitement, our beans have started to grow already – we are enjoying observing their progress!

This week’s homework is a recap on volume and capacity and number bonds for maths and some new spellings to learn for a test on Wednesday.

Have a lovely long weekend!

Don’t Forget: 

PE this week will take place on Wednesday. Please come to school in your outdoor PE kit.

Please also come to school in PE kit on Friday ready for "Field Friday". Please be dressed for the weather on the day - this will hopefully now mean that sunhats will be need rather than our wellies and coats but the English weather can change from week to week so please bring a waterproof if rain looks likely! :) 

Homework was set on Friday and is due in on Wednesday please. Part of this week's homework was a list of spellings and we will have a spelling test on Wednesday.

Please practise your reading at home and bring your book bag to school every day. 

Bring your water bottle with you every day.

 Reading - Please keep reading regularly!

Key words (Common Exception Words) are in the files section for you to practise reading and spelling.

Now that we are back to school, we can change our reading books once again but don't forget our new reading material as an additional resource - our school subscription to the Collins Ebooks. Everyone has been emailed their login details and when you log in, you will find a virtual book shelf of books at appropriate level.
