Hello and welcome back! It’s been wonderful seeing the children back after the Easter break and hearing all their news.
Our Theme this term is ‘Are We There Yet?’ covering Travel, Transport and the Seaside. Please see Holly Class Information Page for more information.
Our Literacy unit started with the story of Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car by John Burningham. After some interesting predictions of where the passengers may be going and what might happen to them along the way, the Y1 children have been working on expanding noun phrases, adding adjectives and using linking words to extend their sentences and the Reception children have been writing simple captions and sentences to match pictures from the story.
In Maths Reception have been looking at numbers beyond 10, identifying the pattern of one 10 and a number of 1’s as the numbers increase from 11-20 and beyond. Year 1 have started their unit on multiplication and division and have been recapping counting in 2’s 5’s and 10s in preparation for starting work on making and adding equal groups and making arrays. Don’t forget Y1 children have access to Mathletics and Numbots to help reinforce current and previous learning and embed their knowledge of number facts. Login details are inside the cover of their yellow reading records.
We have begun to talk about different transport and how it has changed over the years and have been learning how the changing seasons affect the hours of daylight as well as the weather, plants and wildlife.
Please remember that the children only have PE on TUESDAYS. School PE kit should be worn on Tuesdays only – white top and dark shorts/joggers with appropriate pumps/trainers. All other days children should be in school uniform.
Please also ensure your child has their reading book and yellow reading record in school EVERY day. Books should always be read at least twice to help children develop their fluency and this should be recorded in their yellow reading records.
As you may have seen the Friends of Crowmoor have set another ‘Coin Challenge’ for the whole school, to see which class can get the most coins in their jar and win a prize for their class! We have until the end of term to try and collect as many coins as we can and see if we can win the prize!
If you have any non-urgent queries about any of the above or have any issues accessing your child’s accounts or your Tapestry account please email Miss Jones on email@example.com
Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. 🙂 See you Tuesday!
