We have had a fantastic start to year 1!


We are very pleased with how well the children have settled into their new class and how enthusiastic they have been towards their learning. The children have really enjoyed investigating, exploring and developing their reading, writing and maths skills.


We would like to share some of our learning with you:


In English, we have been learning to write instructions. The children loved waiting for the dinosaur eggs to hatch and then writing instructions to look after them. 



Our science topic has been ‘Humans and Senses’. The children had to lose their sense of sight, so we blindfolded them and asked them to work together to make a jam sandwich. This was very interesting! 


Maths has been very practical to allow children to develop their counting, number recognition and ordering of numbers. 


Children have been developing their phonics knowledge by playing word games, puzzles active phonics and listening to songs and rhymes. 



Thank you for all your support at home. It is great to see all the creative and imaginative ways that you are supporting your child with their reading, spellings and homework.


Thank You
