Newsletters and notes for Parents

27th January 2023


In your child’s reading folder please find their new reading book, new sounds and handwriting sheet. Please attach the new sounds to the red treasury tag to keep all the sounds together. 

We are now reviewing all the sounds taught for the next two weeks, so no new sounds will be sent home.  Please practise these sounds on a regular basis.

Remember to log onto Oxford Owl to have a go at reading the ebooks, especially The Little Blending Book.

We have continued to read our new book in English ‘Star in a jar’ and the alternate text ‘Star Friend’.  We are practising re-telling the different parts of the story in readiness for writing our own story.  It is really important we can re-tell the story orally in sentences before writing in our books.

In maths we have finished comparing our numbers to 5 and looking at the composition of numbers to 5 using our 5 frames.  You could have a go at home if you wish practising your recall of numbers to make 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 eg 0 and 5 make 5,  1 and 4 make 5, 2 and 3 make 5, 1 and 3 makes 4, 4 and 0 makes 4 etc 

We are now thinking about weighing and capacity and using language such as heavier, lighter, full, empty, half full.

We enjoyed finding out how Lunar New Year is celebrated and why each year is named after a different animal. 


What is happening week beginning 30.1.23  -  we are starting our new topic – ‘Is there anything above the clouds?’ We will be thinking about space, light and dark, shadows and transport

Our New Year Class 1 target is set around our school value of ‘taking care’. This term we have had numerous toys and resources broken which is very sad. We encourage children when playing to ‘choose it, use it, put it away!
