Thank you for supporting your child by helping them to read at home. It really is so important for their progress in school. Please can we remind you (if you don’t already) to send your child’s reading book into school everyday. If there any problems with this please have a word.
We’ve had a great week back in 1FP. We always love starting a new book and this half term it’s ‘The Three Little Pigs’:
We’ve made story maps to tell the story.
Acting out the story.
Our pig biscuits were delicious.
Next week we’ll be writing the story too.
This week as our good to be green treat all of the children who have not had a red card made pig biscuits. We made these because our new topic is ‘The Three Little Pigs’.
In phonics we have books for the children to read in pairs. The children work together as one child points to the words as the other child reads a page at a time. These books help the children build on their phonic knowledge and they get the chance to help each other with any words they are stuck on.
All the Year 1 staff would like to wish the children and parents a very Happy New Year.
Today we went to St Paul’s Church for our annual Christingle service. This time parents were invited so we had 2 services, to make sure there was enough room for us all in Church.
Year 1 enjoyed making the Christingles. Some of the Year 4 children helped too.
Just a reminder that parents are invited to our Christingle services this Thursday (14th December): 10.00am Reception to Year 3
2.00pm Years 4-6
Please feel free to come along and join in with us.
Here are the spellings to learn for the test next Friday. Please make sure you look at them regularly and keep writing them down so that you remember them.
This half term, our quality text is another great story by Julia Donaldson; ‘Stick Man’. The children have been retelling the whole story using actions – it’s very impressive.
Our story map helps us to remember the story.
We really enjoyed making our own stick men. We visited the forest again to pick our sticks and Mrs Garbutt helped us to join them together and add features.
