Week 2 w/b 13.09.2021
Welcome to our learning round up of week two!
Our class worship sessions this week have centred around ‘The Year of Growth’ where we wrote our own message on how we will grow closer to God in faith and added them to our new tree display.
In Science we enjoyed learning about our body parts, drawing, naming and identifying their purpose. We found some ticklish children as we drew around them!
We then used different materials and resources to build models of bodies and body parts.
In maths we learnt how squares can be rotated and still remain squares through the Nrich game ‘Seeing Squares for Two.’ I have attached the link below so the children can teach you how to play it. Be careful as we found it rather addictive once we got the hang of it! https://nrich.maths.org/10071
Our second football lesson with coach Joe on Wednesday was just as great as the first and he finished by teaching us a new game called Bulldog. We learnt four warm up games in P.E. on Thursday and are going to take turns in voting which ones to play next lesson. All the games needed concentration, balance and control. Check out our solo and partner balances!
- Please continue to use the online eBook service via Collins that you used in Reception. Children logins are the same as last year and can be found on each child’s Google Classroom if you are unsure. We have finished the phonic assessments and next week we will be selecting individual reading books to send home. Reading books should match your child’s reading ability. The books being sent home are books that have been read in class so the child should be consolidating their sounds and developing their fluency further at home. Please use the reading diary to comment on any challenging words or comprehension of the texts.
- We have been securing our knowledge of the alphabet and our letter formation. Please check your child’s bag for their current sheet with their recordings on. Please continue to work on learning the alphabet and the correct letter formation on the reverse side. We have been using these websites letterjoin.co.uk https://www.jellyandbean.co.uk/free-resources/ and this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75p-N9YKqNo to support our learning this week.
Thank you to those parents who attended the Year 1 Meet the Teacher meeting on Thursday. For those unable to attend, the presentation is on the Year 1 website page and the handouts are in your child’s bag.
Thank you to all those that have donated bedding plants so far. If anyone has spare compost or top soil, it would be greatly appreciated as we turned the soil ready to plant next week and it needs a bit of a top up.
Enjoy the weekend and see you on Monday,
