Blwyddyn 1

Welcome to Year 1!

We are so looking forward to this year and all the wonderful things we will be doing!

Our first topic, for the first Autumn half term is ‘Where the wild things are’ and after half term we will be focusing our learning around the stories of ‘Lost and found’ by Oliver Jeffers and ‘Cops and Robbers’.

Please have a look at ‘Lost and found’ and ‘Cops and Robbers’ over half term and write down any questions or ideas your child has about what they would like to learn about in relation to these stories.

Please log in to your child’s HWB J2E account to see any homework, updates and information throughout the weeks.

Monday will still be our ‘Mucky Monday’ day so please do not forget to bring wellies and waterproofs every week.

Reading books will be sent home on a Thursday and will need to be brought into school every Monday please. Please read with your child as often as possible, sign and comment in their diaries and keep working at their ‘high frequency words’.

For snack time this year, please provide your child with a fruit snack and a drink every day for them to enjoy mid afternoon. We are unfortunately unable to prepare and provide this, at present, at school.

In Mathematics and Numeracy this Autumn term, we will be looking at thousands, hundreds, tens and units, where appropriate, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, one more, one less, ten more, ten less, measuring using cms and ms and shape. We will also be having weekly problem solving activities and working with Numicon.

Please go over numbers to 20 at home with your child, recognition and formation, if they are still unsure.

We hope you have a lovely half term break,

Best wishes,

Mrs Griffiths, Miss Burn, Mr Webb and Mrs Schocker
