What are we doing this week?

Week beginning 18th September 2017

Ms Lackford would like to apologise for forgetting to give out the spellings to Class 1 at the end of Friday. They will be sent home on Monday.  A copy of each group's spellings is available in the files on this page and can be found by scrolling down for anyone wishing to look at them over the weekend. 

Spellings have been sent home for the term.  Please help your child learn the spellings for this week.

In Maths, Class 1 will be investigating how to recognise and record numbers that are more than, less than and equal to each other.

Class 1a will be completing number sequences and finding one more or less than a given number.

In English, Class 1 will be looking at the story of Goldilocks.  We will be ordering words in sentences, writing sentences about the pictures we sequenced last week and concentrating on using capital letters for names of characters.

Class 1a will be looking at one of Hans Christian Andersen's most famous stories for young children and we will be writing about the main character's thoughts and feelings.

In topic, Class 1 will be doing some art based around houses in traditional and fairy tales.  We will be looking at the change from Summer to Autumn as part of ongoing Science work in observing the changing seasons.

We will also begin our E-safety work by looking at visiting websites that are appropriate for us.

Class 1a will begin some musical work that is linked to our story for this week.

Please can we remind you that snacks sent in from home should be healthy and not crisps or chocolate bars and that water - not juice - should be used for bottles from home.

Please remember to send a coat into school with your child as the weather can still turn cold and wet and we will be going outside for playtimes!  Please help your child practice doing up their own zip on their outdoor coat as many children tell us they don't know how to do it.

SHOW AND TELL - This week Class 1 Show and Tell will be GREEN and for Class 1a it will be BLUE.  The children will be told the new house names and their respective colours in assembly. They will not change colour group.

Please don't send in things for show and tell unless it is your child's week as we do not have the time to show things for more than one group and want each child to have the time they need so they feel their contribution is valued.

To clarify how Show and Tell works - each group takes turns on a four weekly rotation, meaning that each child has the opportunity to share once every four weeks.
