Happy holidays!

Class 1 have had an amazing year and we have had a great time celebrating the end of term with them this week. Despite the extreme hot weather, the children have been fabulous!

From all of us in class 1, thank you for all of our generous cards and gifts, it is very kind of you.

We hope you have a lovely summer holidays and look forward to seeing you all in September.

Below is our topic plan

Summer 2 – People who help us

Our story focus this week has been Litterbug Doug by Ellie Bethel

Literacy – Writing 

In literacy this week the children have been focussing on writing captions and sentences to recall what happened in the story.

Reading

The children will have a new library book on Monday to share at home and some children also have a RWI reading book too. For reception please see the new booklet of words for the children to practise their sounding out and blending. Please work through these at your own pace throughout the whole term. You will notice underneath each sound is a dot or a dash. A dot is for a single letter sound (phoneme) and a dash is for a sound with 2 sounds together (diagraph). Please encourage your child to point to the dot or dash as they are using their fred talk to say the sounds and blend the word together to read it.

Ditty Sheets

We won’t be sending home a ditty sheet next week. 

Please encourage your child to continue to read sharing books from home over the summer and look out for sounds that they recognise the letters and blend sounds together in short words (with the help of an adult if needed). These are also great to introduce them to ‘red words’ and allow them to start their reading journey. Please encourage your children to join in with these as much as possible to help with their blending skills in the coming weeks.

Reading Records

Your child had their own personal reading record. Please use this to keep track of your child’s reading at home. This can include reading from the ditty sheet, reading words using set 1 sounds or when you share a story with your child (it can be a book from school or home). Please aim to read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this with the date and a comment in your child’s reading record. Please send this reading record in every day. 

Maths

This week we have been recapping their learning on doubles and equal and unequal amounts.

People Who Help Us – forest school fun 

We have been learning about how to be kind to the environment and look after our forest school area. The children did some litter picking in groups to make sure there was no litter in our forest school area.

Animal man visit 

The animal man showed us lots of animals and creatures. He taught us about how he looks after them and cares for them.

Please see separate post for more photos.

Enjoy the weekend!
