Hi Parents and Carers,

We have had an wonderful first week back in Year 1!

Our project work for this half term is all about The Fire of London in 1666, so if you have time to look up facts and information about this event, please do.

In English, we have been learning new vocabulary linked to fire. The children have really enjoyed experimenting with new words and are working hard to remember finger spaces, full stops and capital letters.

In Maths, we have been learning how add and subtract using a numberline. Please complete this  addition and subtraction worksheet together with your child.   

In Phonics, we have been learning different spellings for the /oo/ sounds. We have identified the -ou- spelling (as in group), the -ew- spelling (as in drew), the -oo- spelling (as in moon), the -ui- spelling (as in suit), the -ue- spelling (as in blue) and the split -u_e- spelling (as in flute) sound this week. These words would be good to practice spelling at home.

You can also use the First 100 High Frequency Words list to support spelling and writing practice at home.

Key Messages

  • Phonics books were swapped today. Please make sure these are returned on Friday 24th January.
  • Please make sure you return books on the day. You will incur a £5 fine if this isn’t returned. Your child will be given their new phonics book once the old one is returned.
  • P.E will now be outside so please provide your child with warm P.E clothes.
  • We politely ask that you do not allow children to play on the play equipment before and after school.

Have a great weekend,

The Year 1 Team
