Welcome to Year 1!
In the Spring term, we learned about the fractions half and a quarter.
We have also been looking at measures, including weight and capacity.
We have learned how to write complex sentences by joining two ideas together using ‘and’.
In Phonics we are are busy getting ready for the Phonics Check in June. Use these websites to help your child at home.
Useful Websites for Parents
www.mrthorne.com – has videos teaching all of the sounds and how to recognise them in words
www.phonicsplay.co.uk – free Phonics games you can play at home, learning to read both real and ‘alien’ words
www.youtube.com – search for ‘Alphablocks’ – a tv programme for children all about Phonics
http://www.bigbrownbear.co.uk/magneticletters/ – interactive magnetic letters your child can use for segmenting and blending
www.ictgames.com/literacy – Phonics-based games
In the Autumn term, we learned about 2D and 3D shapes. We practised naming the shapes at home and play I Spy a Shape on our way to school.
We learned what is needed in a good Year One sentence.
We had a go at writing sentences at home. Remember to form your letters correctly.
We practised our Phonics every day. Have a go at recognising the sounds on the sound mats.
During our Enquiry, some birds of prey came to visit.
PE days –
