Year 1


Mrs Whittaker and I are really looking forward to working with you.
I got to know quite a few of you during lockdown, and I think we are going to have lots of fun learning new things. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
Mrs Clifford and Mrs Whittaker


WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week commencing 19th October 2020

 Next week in maths we will be looking at direction and movement.

This will include full turns, quarter turns, half turns, three-quarter turns, left and right, clockwise and anticlockwise.


In Phonics next week we will be looking at different ways to make j    (ge, gi, gy, ge and dge)

The common exception words that we will be learning to write are no, go, so and by.


In our English lessons we will be writing about our first half term in Year 1, and also looking at our Year 1 Common Exceptions Words. We will send home a small number of words that your child is not yet secure with. Please help your child to learn to read these words.


After half term we will begin weekly Guided Reading Sessions. This will involve the children reading in small groups with myself or Mrs Whittaker, allowing us to support the children in reading a variety of texts, and discussing key elements of the story.


Many thanks for your continued support this half term.

Mrs Clifford and Mrs Whittaker
