October Update 2020



In RE we have been learning about God's Creation and about all the beautiful gifts that he has given us. We have also listened to Pope Francis' special letter about Laudato Si' and thought about ways we can protect our Earth, God's Creation and each other. 



In English, we have been reading 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt'. We have had great fun retelling the story both inside and outside of the classroom and in Forest School. Year 1 were super excited to go on a dinosaur hunt, where we found clues across the school and a letter from the dinosaurs. We have been writing our own versions of the story and recounts of our hunt to stop the dinosaurs eating all of our food! 



We have been exploring number and place value. Year 1 have found lots of interesting ways to represent different numbers using classroom objects and resources and written methods e.g bead strings, unifix cubes, tally marks and number sentences. We have also been ordering numbers on a number line and spotting the missing numbers!


September Update 2020:



In RE this week we have been learning about our class saint, who he is and why he is important. We have also discussed the meaning of Veritas and collaged our own badges. In the next couple of weeks we be continuing to learn about 'God's Great Plan'. 



In English this week, we have been using the book 'The day the crayons quit' to inspire our writing. We have read the story, acted it out and written letters to the crayons. This week our chairs also went missing and some letters were left behind for us to read. We have been working hard responding to the letters to find out why the chairs have quit!



Year 1 have been working really hard to apply their problem solving skills. We have been completing maths challege activities such as estimating how many objects are in the jar, comparing weights of classroom objects, naming and identifying shapes, solving number problems, practising our number formation and making different repeating patterns.

Reading Books


Please read at home with your child and sign the reading record when you have read. Regrettably, we are unable to change school reading books until the previous books have been returned and the reading record is signed.

Reading books will be allocated on a Monday to read throughout the week. These need to be handed back in on a Friday, ready for new books to be given the following Monday. Bugclub is to be used for reading over the weekends. 



Homework will be sent out via Google Classroom every Thursday and is due in the following Thursday.


P.E. and Forest School Days

Our P.E. day is Thursday. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. All long hair needs to be tied back. 

Our Forest School day is Friday. Children will have a session once a fortnight. Please make sure that they have the appropriate named kit in school. 

Morning Routine



When children arrive in the morning they are expected to say goodbye to their parents on the playground. The children then come into class and change out of their coats and outdoor shoes and put away their book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes. Once their belongings are away the children go to their places where they complete early morning work. At 8:45 the classroom door is closed and registration is taken, finishing with morning prayer. Any child arriving after 8:45 must enter school through the Main Reception Area where a late slip must be completed.
