The children have worked really hard again this week. In English they have learnt the story of the Little Red Hen and re-told it in their own words. In Maths they have been comparing numbers and beginning to use the < and > symbols. They have also been busy learning songs and a story in preparation for our Harvest Assembly, which we will perform next Friday morning to parents and carers.
Next week in English we will be learning about our local area as part of a cross curricular unit with Geography. In Maths the children will be finding one more and one less than a given number.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Mrs Stockdale, Miss Gordon.

What a great first full week we have had! The children have been writing lists, labels and captions in English, and in Maths they have been counting on and back from given numbers.
Next week in English we will be using adjectives to describe characters, and will be learning and re-writing the story of The Little Red Hen. In Maths we will be learning different ways to find more or less than a given number, including an introduction to the symbols < and >.
Have a great weekend!

The children have settled into school fantastically well this week. We can already tell that they are more than ready for the challenges ahead!
This week we have begun to carry out some essential baseline assessment for Year 1. We have also talked to the children about the new timetable, routines and expectations in Year 1. They seem to be adapting well.
Our topic this half term is Ourselves.
Next week in English the children will be learning about lists, labels and captions. They will be using their phonics to sound out words and to join them to form a sentence.
In Maths we will be learning about Place Value. We will begin by recognising, reading and writing numbers to 10. We will also be completing number sequences and finding 1 more than/less than a given number.
In Kaizen we will begin to use pointillism to paint Harvest Fruit. On Thursday the whole school will be celebrating Roald Dahl Day. We will be helping Willy Wonka to design a new sweet!
Our assessment will continue next week.
Please remember that PE bags should be in school by Monday morning if it is not in school already. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday.
Parent helpers are most welcome, please let us know if you are interested.
Have a relaxing weekend!
Mrs Stockdale & Miss Gordon
