Mrs Bratchell and Mrs John-Lewis are so happy to start the term with us. It really has been an amazingly positive start to the new school year. We have all felt welcomed back after a unique and unsettling year in our reception classes. It has been fantastic being in a year 1 bubble which means we get to see all our friends again.
We are all trying our best to sit at our tables for some of our lessons and we are amazing at putting up our hands up to answer questions and are superstars at listening to instructions.
To start our half term, we will be learning all about our own families and God’s family (please can you send in a picture of your child with their family for our display).
In our next topic – belonging - we will be learning all about what it means to belong to the church community. Throughout this topic we will start to look at the sacraments of Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
This half term, we are revising lots of our learning from Reception and continuing from the last digraphs and trigraphs we were taught. Some of us are more confident with Phase 2 and some of us need a little bit more time to become confident with it before going over Phase 3. We will then start to look at the sounds in Phase 5.
Throughout this half term we are reminding ourselves of place value. Number bonds to 10 and 20, 1 more and 1 less and simple adding and subtraction. We are starting by covering the things we learnt in reception.
