Class Presentation - September 2019

15th October 2019

This week we have been adapting the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been changing the characters and the setting of the story e.g. Goldilocks and the Three Lions and creating our own versions of the story.

After half term, we will looking at instruction writing and Guy Fawkes, as well as Remembrance Day. To support this, over half term you could try and do some cooking with your children, paying particular attention to reading and following the steps in order of the recipe. Go and see your local war memorial. Visit a firework display. Don’t forget to keep reading with your children – anything counts! Have you been on a conker hunt?

This week Year 1 have been continuing to use the story of Goldilocks and the three bears to support our reading and writing. The children have been using actions to help them remember the story. They have then been using this to help them write the story, remembering to use their finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. We have been reading the story together and using the pictures to think about the characters actions and feelings.

In Maths the children have continued to build on their knowledge of number. They have been learning about number facts to ten and using their number bonds. They have been practicing their 5 and 10 times tables by counting up to 100 and back again.

The seasons continue to be our focus with printing of leaves, sponge printing and looking at the changing colours of autumn. Maybe you could discuss what you see with your child when out walking or go Conker picking. Seasons have also been our focus in science while in Geography we keep the focus around our locality and where we live.

We hope your child has enjoyed their week at school and we all look forward to another busy week next week. Keep an eye out for your child bringing home their tricky words to learning in their reading bag. If your child gets on very well with this you could challenge them with learning to spell them. We will be looking out for them in their reading and writing.
