Class 1 weekly news

This half term our topic is ‘People who help us’

Summer 2 – People who help us

Literacy

This week our story focus is Doctor by Lucy Cuthew and Ando Twin

Busy People: Doctor : M. George, Lucy, AndoTwin: Amazon.co.uk: Books

The children have enjoyed writing about the sequence of events leading up to and going to the doctors e.g. She hurt her knee. Mummy rang the doctors. The doctor helped her. She sent her to the hospital.

Phonics/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. We have also sent a 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

This week’s ditty sheet is ditty 1.

This is to consolidate their learning and develop fluency. 

This will be sent home on Monday to introduce the children to reading short words/ sentences. These are used to support our daily phonics teaching. Please encourage your child to 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.

Your child will also receive a reading booklet in their homework file on Monday. Please work through this at your own pace throughout the rest of the half term. 

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 making numbers to 10 using equipment. The children have also been practising to count beyond 20.

We painted and labelled people who help us in the community 

Class 1 loved sports day! We are so proud of how they tried their best, how they behaved and how they cheered each other on. Well done Class 1 🙂

Enjoy the weekend!
