Newsletter sent Sunday 10th of October 2021
This week seems to have whizzed past. I have been really impressed with many of the children’s attitude towards their work this week. In maths they have been methodical and accurate as we have tackled multiplication and English they have started to really think about their writing.
In Geography, we had a really good discussion about the use of dams and their effect on different groups, looking at both positive and negative.
Lots of children have really improved their frequency of reading, please keep encouraging them to do this.
Hope you have a good weekend,
This week the children have really enjoyed learning more about castle life. They have written some non fiction text about The Keep, Dungeons, Food and Battles. They are really starting to talk more about life in a castle and linked this to their PE sessions about Robin Hood.
In maths we have been linking addition facts of 10 to addition facts of 100. We have also added a single digit number to a two digit number in our heads. We need to practise this a lot more to become fluent.
We have been learning more about Mary Seacole and the work that she did for the soldiers in the Crimean War. They are linking these facts to the time of Queen Victoria and Florence Nightingale.
Please let me know if you have any trouble logging on to your child’s email account and I will do my best to help.
Have a great weekend,
This week Year 1 have been using part, part whole models in maths to partition numbers. Next week we will be looking at using these to complete addition problems. In Reception we have been learning all about the number 1. We have found objects and represented 1 using numerals, objects and words. In literacy we have been looking at non-fiction books about every day super hero’s and we have been identifying the features of these texts.
We had an amazing visit from The fire service, where we learned about the jobs firefighters do and fire safety. We even got to use their hose! The pictures are all on tapestry. Next week we will be having a visit from the police, maybe you could talk to your child about questions they might like to ask the police officers.
What a week we have had!
This week we have started our Literacy unit on diary writing and have enjoyed identifying the features of a diary from an explorer. It links very well to our ‘Extreme Survival’ topic!
In Maths, we rounded off our place value unit with an assessment, and we have started our unit on addition and subtraction.
Today in PSHE we talked about world mental health day, which is coming up on Sunday. We discussed resilience and came up with strategies that we can use to become more resilient.
Our camp out last Friday was amazing, the children were really well behaved and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Next week in art we will be starting to create our own miniature extreme habitats! If you have any spare shoe boxes or cardboard boxes, could you please bring them into school.
Have a fantastic weekend!

This week seems to have flown by!
In Literacy we have started our new unit of learning Diary writing. We have been looking at the features and the layout used with diary writing.
In Maths we have started our unit on addition and subtraction. We have added and subtracted 100s, added and subtracted 1s, 10’s and 100’s and 2 digit and 3 digit numbers.
The 10th of October is world mental health day, as part of this in class today we have discussed resilience, what it means and how we can support ourselves and others to be resilient in different situations.
Last Friday we had our overnight stay, i just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for all of your support with this! We has a wonderful time and the children were all fantastic- you should all be very proud!
Next week we will start creating our habitats in a shoe box/cardboard box. Please can i ask that if you have any unwanted shoe boxes/ cardboard boxes at home that you bring them in.
