We Enjoy and Excel in the Presence of God

Year 1

Good afternoon, 

I am so impressed how well Year 1  continue to work hard, show resilience and learn new routines. 

This week we continue our learning journey 'The Queen's Hat' we have been talking about how stories have a beginning, middle and end. We have sequenced a different version of the story and used our phonics to write labels. The children use the grow the code mat to support reading and writing (please see attached).  

In Phonics we have been revisiting and reviewing our learning from year R, reading and applying digraphs (two letters one sound) and trigraphs (three letters one sound) in longer words. 

In Maths, we continue our learning of place value, working out missing numbers in a sequence and finding one more than a given number to 10. 

Home Work

* Maths fluency cards have been sent home this week, please practise so children are fluent in knowing the answers, children need to be able to say the answers quickly.
