We have been talking about our families and the children all drew a picture of their family and labelled it. We have also begun our daily phonic lessons. This week we have revised ll, ff, ss, and zz.
In Maths we have been practising forming our numbers and counting. We have been finding out about number bonds to 10. The children have enjoyed learning a number bond to 10 song! You can also join in at home using this link:
Each week the children will have key skills lessons. This half term we are focusing on the correct formation of the letters and digits. This week we looked at the ‘Curly Caterpillar’ family and practised writing c, a and d cursively and forming 0,1 and 2 correctly.
We had fun looking at their baby photographs and talking about how they had changed. They thought about what they needed when they were a baby and what they need now. Look out for our ‘Guess Who?’ displays. Can you work out who all the babies are?
In PE the children had fun outside doing lots of SAQ (speed, agility, quickness) activities. Our second PE lesson every week will be focusing on gymnastics and the children will be learning different balances, jumps and rolls.
We have all enjoyed painting and drawing our self portraits.
This week we started our exciting Friday afternoon lessons. The children will do different activities each week. This half term they will do RE, music, food skills and a tree walk.
Other Year 1 news
We are visiting the school farm over the next weeks – please can your child bring in a pair of wellington boots to leave at school? They can use their new welly pegs to keep them together.
The children were very excited about their first homework task in their learning logs!! This work is due in on Wednesday 25th September. Thank you for all your support with reading, phonics, spellings and learning logs – it really does make a difference.
Don’t forget to bring your soft toy to school next week!
Have a lovely weekend,

We have had a very busy three days! All the children have settled in really well and are getting used to the routines of Year 1. They have been investigating their new classrooms and outdoor area. Which area has your child enjoyed exploring the most? Can your child remember which hive they are in?
We have enjoyed getting to know the children. We have heard all the children read and they have a new book to share with you at home. Please help your child change their books before and after school.
We have also been to the school library and chosen a book – please share this with your child. We will change our library books every Friday.
We have sent home a newsletter and we hope this helps answer questions about PE kit and reading books. We will be doing PE next week so please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school.
Just a reminder to please send a photograph of your child when they were a baby or toddler. It will be used for the history lesson next week and will go on our ‘Guess Who?’ display. We can print them in school if you email them – email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Have a lovely weekend.

We hope that you have all had a great holiday and are ready for an exciting year. We have been busy getting the classrooms ready and planning lots of fun lessons and visits.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday morning. You will need to look for your peg label in the corridor, put your book bag in your colour hive box and find your drawer to put your fruit in. Then you can sit on the carpet and look at a book.
Have a look at some of our areas. Where would you like to play?
See you all soon!
