Walkern Primary School

Year One

Welcome to Year One!

 

In our class you will find:

Class Teacher (maternity) - Miss Chicken

Class Teacher (maternity cover) - Mrs Hooper

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Doneo

Important bits and bobs for Year 1 children and families :

P.E will take place every Wednesday and Thursday.

Reading books will be swapped when children have finished them - this will be their responsibility and something we are just trialling for now!

Spellings will also be given out each Monday and will be checked in class the following Friday.

Many thanks to all of you who have been telling me what you have been up to – lots of hard work and creativity.  I have been spring cleaning - doing lots of tidying up jobs that I had been saving for the Easter holidays. I have had fun, too.  I love reading mystery novels where the police solve crimes, so I have been pretending I am on holiday somewhere in the world, reading my book next to the sea. This is a treat as I do not get a lot of time to read for my own pleasure. I have really enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine.  

When I have been working on my computer, I have spent time doing more on-line training courses to help me become the best teacher I can be.  Home schooling for grown-ups! I am very interested in how we can keep you all healthy and happy, full of energy and keen to have a go at new things.  So – yes – even adults have important learning to do every day, just like you.

Remember to keep checking Purple Mash as I have set tasks including 2s, 5s and 10 times tables which should be practised on a daily basis – can you get quicker?  I can see your scores improving when you have a go!

Look at the lessons available across week commencing 20th April.  Also, please use the reading lesson outlined for 24th April.  You might like to use some of the English lessons here, too, to support further learning.

I set tasks every week on Purple Mash and you can hand it in to me when you have done.  Well done for all the work I have received – great to see your hard work.

Keep practising those spellings and keep working on your phonics every day using the packs we gave you last term.

Keep safe and keep exercising, too.

Spring in Year 1

Year 1 have been exploring poetry. We are looking at the features of Free Verse and learning to write poems around a theme. We are using exciting adjectives, but not rhyming for this type of poem. We have also enjoyed our Maths lesson where we are using lots of resources to learn how to regroup and make 10. We are becoming experts on ways to make 10. Next stop 20!

In Maths we are learning to regroup.
