Year 1 2021 - 2022

It was lovely to spend time chatting with Year One parents this week, albeit via Zoom, and to hear that the children are happy and settled in Year One! Hopefully our next parents’ evening will be face to face so that you can see some of their super work!

This week, we have read more about that naughty book monster Nibbles and in Maths we have been partitioning numbers in part whole models. We had fun making our class scarecrow for the Helsby trail – maps of the whole trail are available from the local shops – and of course we enjoyed some active outdoor maths on Field Friday.

Homework this week is some more part whole models and a recap on the phonics covered so far this term. Many parents were asking about the phonics cards – these are available to purchase on Amazon (link here) Other suppliers are available but if you shop via Amazon Smile, school does get a donation to funds.  There are lots of good websites that you can use to practise phonics too – see the files to download at the bottom of this page. Phonics Play is a particular favourite of the children.

Only one more week to go before half term – fingers crossed that everybody stays well and that the weather remains kind to us so that we can enjoy our special Field Friday this week!
