Year 1

Dear Parents / Carers,

Time is passing so quickly and it is amazing to think that we have almost completed the first half term in Year 1.  The children have settled in very well
Here is a brief outline of our learning for this week.

R.E. and English

We will continue with the topic ‘Belonging’. This week we will be learning about the Sacrament of Baptism. Through role-play the children will act out the rites of Baptism using the same words that the Priest uses when he welcomes new members of God’s family.  The children will draw and write simple sentences explaining the significance of the signs and symbols used in Baptism.

The sound  of the week is ‘igh’  e.g. ‘light, high, and bright’.   

The word of the week is:‘ask’ e.g.  ‘a schoolkey‘.

At Home: Please talk to your child about their Baptism, who their Godparents are, and the family members who shared this celebration with you as well as the importance of becoming a member of God’s family.

Mathematical Development

We will be revisiting the different mathematical topics we have been learning this half term e.g. addition, number bonds, bigger and smaller numbers, ordering numbers and subtraction.

At Home:Help your child to continue to learn and be confident with, the number bonds to 10. eg 1+9=10, 2+8=10 etc.  

General Informations

These are the websites that we recommended to you  Please keep your child’s usernames and passwords in a secure place.  If you have any questions please speak to the class teacher. 

Thank you for your support
