We Enjoy and Excel in the Presence of God

Year 1 - 3.11.23

Good afternoon,

In Phonics, we have learnt four new GPC’s; ir (first, bird, girl), ie (lie, cried, fried), ue (blue, rescue, argue), u (unit, tuna, music). We have also learnt new tricky words (words that can not be sounded out); here, today, one, their, people, oh, your. Please encourage your child to spot these in books.

Well done to all the children who are reading your most recent Little Wandle e-book, it is really supporting your phonics and reading skills. 

In English, we have been learning and practising ‘The Three Little Pigs’. The children have drawn excellent story maps to help them remember the beginning, middle and end. In a few weeks they will perform their stories to year R, using the puppets they have made in class. Children may like to practise and perform to you!

In Maths, we have continued to add, solve problems and using the part, part, whole method. Children are getting really good at grasping this concept.

Over the next few weeks, Mrs Langton will be joining us at various parts of the day to get to know the children and make those important relationships with the children. 


*PE Days are Monday’s and Friday’s

*West End in Schools- next Friday - workshop with the children on Diwali a Hindu Festival.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and stay safe. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Emma and I on:- and
