Happy New Year and welcome back!
The children are working so hard and earning lots of Marvellous Me points! To celebrate getting to 800 points in 1KL, the children asked for hot chocolate, marshmallows and biscuits. Yum! Our next goal is 1000...
In English we have been learning about how to write a story. Today we had an experience day. We pretended that we were the main character in the story getting ready to go on the big, red aeroplane we found in our toy cupboard. We worked in pairs to 'hot seat' each other and find out just how excited we were to go fly our aeroplane.
This half term in science we are learning about plants. We have talked about the things a plant needs to grow. On Friday, we planted our own seeds and we are very excited to watch them grow!
In RE this half term we will be learning about special symbols and objects. On Friday, we learnt about what a symbol is and looked around the school at different symbols and what they represent.
We have been busy in our first week back learning about numbers and place value. We have been counting forwards and backwards, counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s, and looking at tens and ones.
This term out topic is 'People Who Help Us'.
We are busy learning all of our sounds in Year 1 at the moment. Please help your child to practise these sounds at home as much as possible. The children love playing the games on the 'Phonics Play' website. Follow the link below and click on the children's section to find a variety of games.

We would like your child to read every day to support the work the children do in school. Their reading diary and book should be put into the book box each morning so that the books can be changed and reading can be monitored. Don't forget, the more times the read, the more tickets they will have in the reading raffle!
Each week, children will be given a set of spellings to learn from our new Year 1 spelling scheme. Please help your child to learn these spellings using the 'Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check' method. Children will be tested on these spellings every Monday and given a new set to learn on Wednesday. Thank you for your help and support.

Please make sure you child has the correct PE kit, long hair is tied back and their earrings have been removed for these days.
Would you be willing to listen to children in 1KL read?
We are always looking for volunteers to help the children improve their reading skills.
Please speak to Miss Lilley or Mrs Smith for more details.
