- About Us
Homework this week is for the children to learn ten spellings. A small strip of spellings will be stapled inside their homework book and children will be tested weekly. We are having a big focus on spellings this last half term before the children head up to year 2. We have noticed from the children's writing that they are not using their sounds that they have learnt to help them spell correctly. Please ensure that your child knows their spellings for their weekly test as this will continue to improve their writing abilities.
Year 1 Team
Next week, Year 1 will be taking their phonics screening test and in preparation we have sent home a copy of last year's test in order for the children to practise.
There is a mixture of real and nonsense words and the children are encouraged to sound out the words and then blend in order to read accurately.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
Year 1 Team
This week in maths, we have been continuing to learn all about time, how to tell it, how to write it and how to draw the hands on a clock face. We started out by looking at o'clock times, we discussed with our partners everything we knew about o'clock and then had a go at making different o'clock times on our miniature clocks. We were absolute superstars at this and so we thought we would challenge ourselves and have a go at learning half past.
This proved to be a little trickier as we had to use our knowledge of fractions to help us learn what half past actually meant. Some of us were super clever clogs and managed to link what we had learnt about 'half way' in capacity. We will be continuing to learn half past times this half term as practice makes us perfect!
