We hope you had an enjoyable summer holiday. We are looking forward to this year with the new Corfu and Skiathos classes.
This week in Year 1
In Literacy, we are writing about our summer holidays.
In Numeracy, we are revising our place value knowledge for numbers to 20 and beyond. We are also creating and describing patterns using 2D shapes.
In other areas of learning…
In the creative zone, we are painting pictures of the places we visited during the summer holidays. We are also creating new colours by mixing paints together. Do you know how to create secondary colours?
In our role-play area, we are creating a hotel. Over the weeks we will prepare our hotels for the guests who come to stay. This will include helping our guests prepare for the places they want to visit.
In RE, we are writing prayers of thanksgiving for a new school year.
Over the week our teachers will be assessing our phonic knowledge. Please see the link below with all sounds we will learn in KS1.

We will start taking home reading books from this week onwards.
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. Children are reminded to change their books during the morning activity time with Mrs Brown (Skiathos) or Miss McGarth (Cyprus).
