Next Week’s Learning (beginning 16.9.19)

Next week is the start of our new mini topic called Lost and Found we will be using the book Beegu to explore how it feels to be lost. Look out on Monday there maybe a crashed space ship in the playground!

In Maths we will be further consolidating children’s number knowledge, with activities to develop their understanding of one more or one less.

Some of you have been asking about PE lessons and I am sorry but I do not yet have a timetable for the use of the PE halls. However, because we are still using continuous provision the children are able to engage in a lot of physical activities both inside and out.

This Week’s Learning (beginning 9.9.19)

This week we have done lots of work about ourselves. We have talked about how we feel, what we look like and how we behave. The children have decorated figures, drawn around different body parts and even labelled a life-sized figure of a child in their class.

In maths we have been consolidating number knowledge. The children have worked on the learning objective; to be able to read, write count and order numbers to 10 and beyond. Those children who were already able to do this were given challenges that encouraged them to explain their thinking and deepen their understanding.

It has been a remarkable week considering it is our first week back from the summer holidays. The children have settled in well and they’re thrilled about being in year one. This week has been about familiarizing ourselves with one another as well as sharing thoughts regarding what would constitute a great team; we also spoke about the significant people chosen as our class names and the role these people played. This lesson was aimed to motivate the children in their learning and how to achieve their dreams. In maths, we learnt about ordering numbers to 20 to refresh our mind on recognizing numbers to 20 and counting to and across 20, forwards and backwards. We are very optimistic that this academic year will be a successful one.

Welcome to Year One!

We hope you have all had a lovely summer. We are looking forward to seeing the children back at school next week.

First day of Term Tuesday 3rd September

Just a few things for you to remember; School now starts at 9am, please bring your children to the reception/year one playground (nursery end) and wait for the classroom door to be opened. School now finishes at 2.50pm, please wait in the playground and we will send your children to you. Uniform– please remember that children should be in correct uniform, shoes should be black and all items should be clearly labelled. PE kits will also need to be labelled, these will be kept in school and sent home at the end of each half term for washing.

We are all looking forward to a year of learning and fun in Year One. See you all on Tuesday!

From the Year One Team.

This week’s Learning (beginning 15thJuly)

As we reach the final few days of the school year I would like to thank you all for your support throughout the children’s time in Reception. It has been much appreciated.

This week we had our graduation ceremony and the children were thrilled to see so many of you there. They spent a long time learning the songs and making their special hats. On the day they performed beautifully and we were very proud of them.

School finishes for the summer holidays at the normal time on Tuesday 23rd July. I wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you in September.
