Year 1 Week 47 2014

Measuring and Comparing Lengths 
In Literacy, this week, each class has changed the animal in the story “The Tiger Who Came to Tea” by Judith Kerr. The children have used “Talk for Writing” to help them retell, then write, the story. Everybody tried hard to include interesting words, connectives, capital letters and full stops in their independent “Big Write”. Well done!

In Mathematics, we have been using common words to describe position and direction. Please ask your child how we can use our hands to remember which direction is “left”. We have also been measuring and comparing lengths and heights of a variety of objects. We look forward to looking at the measuring homework next week.

Warm Outdoor Clothing: Please check that your child brings named gloves and hat every day, as well as a warm, waterproof coat. We would like all the children to be as comfortable as possible during their outdoor breaks. 

Year 1 Assembly: We would like to invite all Year 1 parents/carers to our assembly on Tuesday 2nd December at 10.10 in the school hall. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. 

Thank you for your continued support. Mrs Hawker and Miss Caunter
