FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Welcome to Class 1
Codename: The Robins
Class Teacher: Mrs G Jones, BA Ed (Hons), PGCE
Classroom Assistant: Mrs V Lightfoot / Mrs Edmed
Welcome back – I hope everybody had a good Christmas and I wish you all a healthy and happy new year.
This term we will be continuing to learn more new sounds and will be focusing on digraphs (two letters that blend together to make one sound). Also, we will start to write some words and simple sentences independently. We will begin to consider alliteration, rhythm and rhyme by looking at familiar nursery rhymes.
In maths, we’ll be looking at at the ‘teen’ numbers and start to study the concepts of time and money, along with consolidating our understanding of shape and pattern.
After a lot of discussion in the class, we have decided to change our role play area into a space rocket. I’ll post some photos on DOJO when it’s all set up. This ties in quite nicely with our Creative Learning sessions with Year 1 as we are going to be learning about the various ‘Festivals of Light’ that happen around the world, starting off with exploring the difference between dark and light and night and day.
