Hello everyone, in class one this half term we have been busy learning about Dinosaurs. We have loved learning different dinosaur names, looking at fossils, making dinosaurs and writing letters to dinosaurs.
All the children performed brilliantly in their Christmas nativity productions this year. The EYFS enjoyed performing ‘Away in a manager’ and Year 1 performed “Lights Camel action.” This week we are excited about our class trip to Snow Dome and singing our own version of “deck the halls” in the Christmas Carol concert this week. Our class Christmas party is on Thursday afternoon.
After Christmas, our class topic will be Food Glorious food. We will be exploring were food comes from, and how it is grown. In Literacy, we will be exploring Traditional tales including Hansel and Gretel and the Gingerbread man. In Science, we will be exploring materials by conducting experiments to explore their properties. In Math’s, we will be continuing to work on addition and subtraction, followed by exploring measurements (length, weight and capacity).
After Christmas Year 1 will have weekly spelling practice in school. I will send a copy of these home at the beginning of Spring Term and put a copy of the spellings at the bottom of this page. Please can you help your child to practice these spellings at home.
We will continue to have PE on a Monday and Thursday, please ensure your child has both and indoor and outdoor PE kit in school on these days.
We really appreciate your support in continuing to listen to your children read as often as you can at home.
Show and Tell is on the first Wednesday of the month for EYFS. We ask that your child brings something small with them to act as a starting point for discussion, it can be a favourite toy, something they have made, something from a special visit or a photo.
If there is anything you need to know, please don't hesitate to ask
