Thanks to all the parents and grandparents who attended our parent meeting. I hope you all found it useful. If you have any questions please let me know.
This week Reception children have learnt the sounds m and d and next week they will be learning the sounds o, c, k, ck and e.
Class 1 Word of the Day
Next week we are beginning to use a 'Word of the Day'. The 'Word of the Day' gives the children the opportunity to learn and use a variety of new and interesting vocabulary. Children will be given a house point if they use the 'Word of the Day' in conversation or in their writing. See if you and your children can use some of the 'Word of the Day' words at home.
Next week's words are:
Monday - cavern
Tuesday - vacant
Wednesday - quicksand
Thursday - pouring
Friday - frightening
We have worked really hard this week and have learnt the sounds in the photos below. Have a look with your child and see whether they can say the sound to you. Some children are now able to read some simple words too - I have included a couple in the pictures below.
Next week we will be learning the sounds m, d and g. We will also continue to put the sounds together to make some words. I am happy to help if you have any questions about helping your child with phonics at home.
Show and Share
Class 1 look forward every week to our Show and Share sessions on a Friday afternoon. This week's items included: a magic trick, a fairy, tranformers, a dinosaur, a robot, a unicorn and a unicorn hat, talking birds, pretend food, a toy insect, a bracelet and ballet medals.
We love to see anything interesting from home and love to hear interesting stories too.
Welcome to Class 1's page on the new school website.
We hope to put lots of news and information on our web page to keep you up to date with what is happening in the classroom. Please keep checking this page for news and information.
As we move towards the end of September the children in Class 1 are beginning to develop coughs and colds. At this age we are still trying to teach children to wash their hands carefully, cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze, blow their nose and put their tissues in the bin.
Many parents send in small packets of tissues for their child to use, which are extremely fiddly for little fingers to open and use and can become quite expensive to buy. Instead of doing this we ask for you to buy a large box of tissues to send in to school for the whole class to use. We get through lots of tissues at this time of year and would be extremely grateful for any boxes of tissues.
