Term 1 Week 6

Today we had a great time in Year 1! We have been learning all about fruit this term, the packaging shops use to sell fruit salads and today it was finally time to make our healthy fruit salads. The children washed, peeled and chopped their chosen fruit. I hope they tasted delicious!

Supporting your child with handwriting

Children need a solid understanding of letter formation before they are ready to join. This week we are sending home handwriting packs to support the correct number and letter formation. To accompany these packs you can use the animations below to help your child remember how to form each letter with the correct lead in. Click on the image below to watch the handwriting animations. The website 'Writing Repeater' is also great for supporting letter formation. Your child writes on the screen and it plays it back as an animation so you can see if they formed the letter or word correctly.

Year 1's First Day in Class 2


Year 1 have enjoyed their first day in Class 2. As our fruit delivery hadn't arrived we made delicious jam sandwiches for the children to enjoy on the back field during playtime. The children also enjoyed playing on our new climbing frame in the outdoor area. Next week, book packets will come home with a reading book and homework will be sent home on Tuesday. Information will be placed on the Class 2 page for you to download - this will include a yearly overview and a parent handbook which will explain reading, phonics and homework changes for the year.
