Year 1 Wrens

Welcome to Wrens

Wrens 2018-19

Autumn 1

Wrens class have settled in very well and have adapted well to year 1. Here is a general time table of each day with a few variations!

Children come in at 9am and the register is taken.

The children then go off to their phonics groups for approximately 20 minutes. They then continue the morning with Maths and English with playtime and assembly in between.

They have their lunch just after 12pm and then go out to play. The children then come in to class again at 1.15pm for registration and then do some quiet reading. The children will then complete some Topic work, and either PSHE, RE, Music, Science or PE. 

 This term topic is ' All about me'

English

We have been looking at poetry about worms over the last few weeks and the children have enjoyed reading, reciting and writing their own poems. 

 

 

PHONICS

 We will continue to work hard in our Phonics groups this year on Letters and Sounds to progress our knowledge of sounds in order to read and write with increasing proficiency ready for the phonics screening at the end of the year. 

 

There is more information about the Phonics screener here:

Also please remind your children to complete their spellings at home as well as school, as these are the High Frequency words that need to be spelled correctly in their independent writing. 

 

READING

Please continue to read with your child as much as possible (we recommend just a few minutes every day). If you read at home - remember to sign the reading diary to say you have done so (with a comment if possible!) .

They will also get a sticker on their reading cards and when they have filled these will receive a prize from Mrs Lewis in celebration assembly! 

 

Please remember to keep your PE kit on your peg EVERY DAY - sometimes PE days change around and we want everyone to be able to participate fully.

Remember your PE kit should include: school t-shirt, shorts, long trousers, plimsolls and trainers. This term P.E lesson will be on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER TO NAME ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING!

Maths

We have worked very hard in our Maths this term to explore number and their value. We have enjoyed learning about numbers and using different comparison operation symbols to explore which number is < less than, > more than and = equal to another.  

We have also been doing a lot of problem solving. 

Here are some of our favourite counting songs!
