Welcome to Class 1! Croeso I Dosbarth 1!
Teacher: Mrs Church
Teaching assistant: Mrs Kelly and Miss Heaven
Welcome back to our Autumn term everyone! Congratulations to the new Reception pupils for starting school so well and to the other pupils in the class for welcoming them and setting a good example
Hopefully we will have a great term where everything will be as normal as we can make it.
Our context this half term is, Fantastic Food ! We will be looking at food and where it comes from.We will attempt to grow some of our own food and understand what plants need to grow. We will be thinking about what we eat and how we can make our diet a healthy one. Food groups are very important for this so we will discover which ones we should be eating lots of and which ones we should have in small amounts. All of this will lead to planning and enjoying a healthy Autumn picnic. We will create a menu and follow recipes to create healthy snacks.
In Literacy we will be looking at recipes and creating instructions for making food. We will hear stories about food from different places in our world.
Reading books are available on Bug Club and should be read on a regular basis. The books will be allocated weekly to pupils and can be found in Active Learn. Each pupil will be sent home with their individual details and the school code is w77g. When you get there you go to My Stuff and then Phonics. The books for the week can be found there along with games to reinforce particular sounds and spelling patterns. There are also reading games and sound games to be done each week that will help improve confidence and quick sound and word recognition.
Spelling words are available on Google Classroom each week and are specific to different groups of learners. Passwords and details of how to access Google Classroom will be sent home shortly. Year 1 already have details .
Maths games can also be found on Active Learn. When you get to Active Learn and login you will go to My Stuff and then Abacus.
All pupils will be looking at number recognition and ordering at an appropriate level for different groups. They will be doing simple addition and subtraction within ten and learning doubles and number bonds to 10. Games and songs will appear in Google Classroom in their stream.
In Class 1 we will have PE on a Wednesday to start the term and will then add another day as we settle in. Pupils can come to school on that day wearing their PE kit.
All pupils will begin the year by understanding Harvest as a Christian festival. We will be learning the songs above and they will take place in a school Harvest celebration.
