In our literacy lessons next week we will begin to do some learning about bears in preparation for doing a unit on We’re Going on a Bear Hunt after half term.
In our numeracy lessons next week we will be continuing our work on addition and using bar models to help us build addition stories.
Rainbow targets will be given to each child by the end of next week. The aim of the Rainbow Targets is to help children improve their mental maths ability so they need to have quick recall of their target. We will test the children on their targets every couple of weeks by asking them to complete 10 questions in 1 minute. Once children have achieved their target twice they will be given a new target.
Coats and Wellies
Please could you ensure that your child brings a coat to school everyday as the weather is now getting colder and wetter. There are also a number of children who still do not have wellies in school. Please could your child bring some in if they don’t have them to wear during our outside learning sessions.
Individual school photos will be taken on Thursday 19th October for Mrs Boscher’s class and Friday 20th October for Mrs Bramley and Miss Horsepool’s. Family photo sessions can be booked at the school office.
Please don’t forget that the school is closed the week after next for half term (23rd-27th October). School closes at the normal time on Friday and begins again on Monday 30th October.
We look forward to seeing you for parents appointments next week. If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for an appointment. If you need to link to sign up, please contact the school office.
Thank you for your support,
The Year 1 team
