I hope that you have a lovely weekend Year 1!

I have put some home learning in the 'home learning stars' for the week ahead. It would be lovely to hear about how you find the home learning and you can contact me by email on wrens1@barden.lancs.sch.uk.

 

For those who haven't yet seen the school blog, Mr Cooper has started a competition for all pupils.  So many fantastic entries have already been posted on the school blog, so well done and keep those photos coming in!  We love seeing them all!

 

Thank you for those who have written back to me this week! It has been lovely receiving your letters and hearing about all of the lovely things you have been doing at home.  Also this week, MIss Hayhurst and I will try and give you all a phone call to say "Hello", so we look forward to speaking to you all!

 

We hope that you have a lovely week ahead and we hope to hear from you all soon.

Hello Wrens,

I hope that you have had a lovely break! Blessed Eid to you and your family for those who celebrated. I know that Miss Hayhurst and I can't wait to see you all!

 

During half term, I have been going on lots of bike rides with my children.  We live in Southport and we have a lovely big marine lake to cycle around. Next time you have a day free after lock down, you should definitely visit Southport so that you can see our beach, pier and visit the lovely gardens and play areas that we have.  There is even a funfair and water world here! I might even bump in to you here after lock down has ended. (It's only an hour away!)

 

If you have a look at the home learning stars on the class page, you will find some home learning activities for you to complete this week.  If you need any help or if you would like some more activities to complete, then please feel free to email me at wrens1@barden.lancs.sch.uk.  (We really want to hear from you!)

 I really want to help you all as much as possible so if there is anything I can do to help you then let me know!  

 

Keep on sending us your photos and blogs! Miss Hayhurst and I really love reading all of your posts.

 

Stay safe and keep reading!

 

Lots of love from

Miss Jones and Miss Hayhurst

Wrens 1 Class Page

Miss Jones and Miss Hayhurst welcome you to the class page for Wrens 1. Here you will find the key information for Year 1 and we will also post photos of some of the things we learn about each week.

READING

In Year 1, we like to promote a love of reading and your child will bring home a new reading book and school library book every Tuesday. Every day your child will take part in a guided reading session where we will be encouraging your child to read with independence. To help build your child’s skill and confidence in reading, we ask if you could listen to your child read every day, as it really does help them to progress.  Children can also borrow books from our classroom reading area if they want to!

 

PE

Please note that P.E. is on Monday and Friday. Can we please have the correct kit in school to enable your child to participate confidently.  You are welcome to leave the PE kits in school until half term if you wish.

 

HOMEWORK

We will send homework out on a Friday.  The aim of the homework is to consolidate what the children have learned during the week and to give them the opportunity to practice further.

 

SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD’S LEARNING AT HOME.

I can highly recommend some websites that your child might find fun to play at home. We use the following websites in school to support your child’s learning and the children seem to really enjoy them.  If you go to the websites and click on ‘learning games’ then it will generate a list of interactive games which can be played on both tablets or laptops.

BEHAVIOUR

We reward positive behaviour and effort in Wrens 1.  If your child displays excellent effort or behaviour, then they receive a ticket to enter a prize draw each Friday.  We will choose randomly select four winners each Friday to choose a prize from the treasure box.  We also take part in the whole school approach to behaviour by using the traffic lights system.  

 

 

 

CURRICULUM THIS TERM

We have a term full of fun and learning planned for your child!  Our theme for this term is ‘All about me’, where we will be exploring the children’s lives through Art, Science, PSHE Geography and RE.

In English, we are looking forward to furthering your child’s literacy skills through our study of a variety of rich children’s texts, including: We are currently reading ‘Not now Bernard’ by David McKee.

Through our shared reading of these texts we will have opportunities to understand and use simple punctuation. Pupil’s will also have opportunities to create own texts based on these texts and our topic – ‘All about me’.

This year we are also very privileged to use a handwriting scheme called ‘Letter-join’. Children will have 3 taught session throughout the week.

 

In Maths, we will be learning about:

  • Number and place value
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Money
  • Time
  • Fractions
  • Properties of shapes.

 

In Year 1, we follow the National curriculum to teach your child a broad and balanced syllabus which aims to promote progression.  Full details of the national expectations for Year 1 can be found here. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/425601/PRIMARY_national_curriculum.pdf
