Our classes are called Freedman and Donaldson. They are named after authors that we think have BRILLIANT books. In Year 1 we love to explore, find out new things and ask lots of questions.
Here are some things that might help you with your learning at home...
Please ensure you continue to practice all of the taught sounds with your child. Being able to correctly pronounce them, recognise them in words and use them in writing is a very important building block to your child's spelling and ability to read with more fluency.
We are continuing to learn phase 5 sounds this term. These explore alternative sounds to those we already know. They also link to spelling rules.
Can you have a go at reading these alien words?
This term will see us explore the questions:
'Where will we find small creatures?' and 'How do we keep healthy?'
As part of our topic we will be exploring non fiction texts about ladybirds, spiders, ants, bees and butterflies. We will be creating our own fact files about these creatures. We will also try to hatch our own eggs! Following on from our visit to Tesco, we will be exploring the Eat-Well plate. Children will create healthy lunch box menus.
Key words for term's topic.
We will be focusing our learning telling the time and addition and subtraction within word problems. In Year 1, we need to recognise numbers to 100, be able to write number names from 0 to 20, order them and recall number bonds to 20.

We have loved having fun with rhyming. Why not play these games at home?
