I don't know why this didn't load last week! It was lovely to see you again at parents evening and lovely to share the progress that your child is making. I am really pleased with the hard work and mindset of the year one class. If you were unable to attend we will catch up in the next couple of weeks.
Maths: We have completed our Singapore maths books. The last chapter was a review chapter, there were over 40 questions from all the work covered from September and they jumped around from addition, shape, position, subtraction to place value. The children were tackling them well and it showed a real understanding of the learning covered this year.
World book day: WOW the children looked absolutely amazing in their costumes and when we saw how fabulous they looked we scrapped our English planning took photos of them all to use as inspiration for writing! On world book day itself we stopped and read each time Miss Sutton blew the tenor horn. The children wrote alternative nursery rhymes, recited rhymes and worked in groups to act rhymes out. Rhyming is a really important aspect of language, if your child finds rhyming difficult please play games and recite rhymes to encourage them and help their development.
RE: We began our unit of “Why does Easter matter to Christians?”
I hope you have a very happy weekend. Look forward to seeing you next week for our for science week.
