Welcome to Corfu class (Week 19.9.16 – 23.9.16)

Welcome to Year 1 Corfu class!

Corfu classroom

Please check our blog every week, as we will be posting information about our learning and tasks to complete for home learning.

Book bags: Please ensure your child brings his/her book bag to school every day, as it is a means of transporting reading materials safely and it is a valuable method of communication.

Uniform: Please ensure all items of clothing (PE kits and uniform) are clearly labelled with your child’s first and last name.

PE kits: Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is at school every Monday morning.

Reading: Your child would have received a home reader and reading journal. Please read with your child every night. In the reading journal, write a comment about their reading and sign to acknowledge you have listened to them. As of next week, children will be encouraged to independently change their book during the morning activity time.

This week we are continuing to learn about lists, labels, and captions in literacy. In numeracy, we have been exploring the numbers up to 20, numbers bonds for numbers up to 5, and using and describing 2D shapes. Our topic this half term is Ancient Greece, and this week we are finding the answer to the challenge questions: When was the Ancient Greece period? Where in the world was Ancient Greece?

Next week…



Names and alphabetical ordering



Number bonds to 10

Measuring by comparing length, mass and capacity


Lord’s Prayer


Finding the answer to: Has Greece always looked the way it looks today?

Home learning this week:

Children will soon receive an individual log in for Mathletics and Spellodrome. In the meantime, please complete some literacy and numeracy games at home.



We have included the list of high frequency words that Year 1 children will be required to read and write. Please practise these words at home.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Richards and Mrs Foti
