Weekly Note 17.10.16

This is the final week before half term and we are really pleased with how well the children have settled into Year 1. We hope you enjoyed having the opportunity to come and see what they get up to in the Discovery Zone and Garden – the children really enjoyed being able to show you their favourite activities.


In literacy this week we will be innovating the story of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by asking the children to think of different settings which they could go through on a bear hunt. Children will be using an app called ‘Book Creator’ to create a page for our new class version of the story.

We have been using the story map pictured below in class to help us re-tell the story without using the book. See if your child can tell you the story with the actions!image


In our maths lessons this week we will be working on money. We will begin by getting children to recognise the different coins before using them to make small amounts.  Click below for some money activities which you might like to use to help your child at home.

Money Activities

We will also be doing some work on 3D shapes next week. We would like to make junk models using different shaped boxes or containers. If you have any suitable recycling or empty boxes that you can bring in we would be really grateful.

Flu Immunisations

The flu immunisations will take place on Tuesday 18th for those children who are having them.


We are looking forward to seeing you for the parents evening meetings next week and hope you have a enjoyable half term from 24th – 28th October.

Thank you for your support,

The Year 1 team
