Next week is looking to be a very exciting week!
First thing on Monday we are going to the Farm, which means your child needs to arrive wearing a waterproof coat, school top, old trousers and wellies. We also advise your child to bring spare bottoms (perhaps their uniform) as well, just in case we don’t get lovely spring sunshine. We still need adult helpers so if you are free please just turn up on Monday morning ready. Thank you!
On Friday we have got our class assembly and as I am sure you are aware you are welcome to come and watch. After you drop your children off on Friday you can wait in the hall and our assembly should start at about 9.15am and will last approximately 30 minutes. If other family members wish to come that is fine also, but we do have a limit on space.
Your child’s literacy learning this week will focus on drama in preparation for their assembly. This will heavily connect with music also. Please support your child at home by encouraging them to practise their lines for the assembly and challenge them to raise their voice whilst speaking.
In Maths we are continuing to explore number with a particular emphasis on counting in 2s,5s and 10s and consolidating your child’s number bond skills. Additionally, we will be sequencing days of the week and the months of the year and solving word number problems.
Thank you to all the parents who have supported Year 1 in the afternoons over the last few weeks, whilst they have been making puppets! I am can happily announce all of Year 1 have made a puppet and they are truly very individual. We look forward to showcasing them on Friday in our assembly.
Thank you also to all those parents who have supported The Big Pedal over the last two weeks. We have been keeping score and our class record was 23.
Please continue to practise phonics with your child and to read with them as often as you can.
