Reading for Pleasure

Your child has brought a book home to share with you which they have chosen themself.  Every Friday your child will have the opportunity to choose a new book to bring home.  Please ensure your child brings their book back to school every Friday, so a new one can be chosen.

Dear Parents / Carers,

This week we have enjoyed learning about snails and meeting Geoffrey the African Land Snail belonging to Finley and Leo.  Cecily also brought in some snails she found in her garden.  We have found out about the different parts of a snails, observed how they move, and drew pictures of them. We read the book ‘Snail Trail’ and found out about the artist Matisse.  We had a go at creating our own collage pictures by tearing tissue paper. 

We have continued to observe our caterpillars in the classroom, they are all in their cocoons now!  We can’t wait to see the next part of the life cycle when they emerge as butterflies. 

In maths this week we have continued to look at numbers up to 20.  There are number cards in your child’s bag from 0-20 to cut out.  Encourage your child to order the numbers and play some games with them. Can they spot a missing number if you take it away?  Can they put the numbers in the right order if you muddle them up?  Can they say which number comes after or before a certain number?

Also, there is as spelling sheet if you wish to have a go with your child.  These are words we have already focussed on in our phonics sessions, and we have been practising writing them every morning.  We are trying really hard to remember the correct formation of the letters when writing these words.  A new reading book and new e-book have been assigned too.

Also for your information, Class 4 is on residential next week from Monday – Wednesday.  Therefore seating for your child at dinnertime will be different for those 3 days – they will find they are sat with other children they may not normally be with, maybe at a different table.

Broken and old toys - we need your help!

If you have any old cameras, phones, mobile phones, binoculars, keys that you no longer need, we would love them in class 1 please to replenish our baskets!

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!
