Year 1. Week 2 18th September

The children have been working very hard this week.

Our work in English for the next few weeks will be based around the story called Peace at Last by Jill Murphy. At the moment we are developing story book language by retelling the story with words and actions, using the Talk for Writing approach. 

For homework this week we have put a copy of the story map into their homework book. All the children are familiar with this, and we would like you to encourage them to use it to retell the story to you.  We hope you all enjoy this and have lots of fun!

In maths we have been continuing to do addition and some of us have found out that adding can be done in any order!

Next week we are going to change each child’s reading books every Monday.  Each child will bring home at least five books which they can read throughout the week.  When they return them to school the following Monday morning they will be able to choose another five books for that week. 

Please remember that the children will need to have their Forest School kit in school on a Tuesday and their PE kits in school on a Wednesday. It is advisable that the children have waterproofs for Forest Schools as we will be outside even if it is raining!

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Angela Hawker,   Mrs Alison Halstead.
