Hello and welcome to 1AO!

In Literacy this term we are starting to use Talk 4 Write to help retell traditional tales. We will be learning the story of The Gingerbread Man and The Little Red Hen. We will be rehearsing the story with actions. Our focus this term is using the correct letter formation, full stops and remembering our finger spaces. We are also working on putting our phonics sessions into practice by using our sounds to spell words phonetically.

During Numeracy this term we are working on our numbers to 20. We will be looking at the value of each number and where the numbers are placed on a number line. We will be practising counting forwards and backwards to twenty. Also, we will be looking at representing numbers in different ways using various equipment.

Our new Topic this term is Hot and Cold places! We will be learning about different places around the world, looking at how their climates and habitats differ.

In Science we will be learning all about Everyday Materials. We will be learning about the properties and uses of various materials.

P.E takes place every Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit in school. The P.E kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts or leggings and a pair of trainers. It is very important your child has the correct uniform to ensure safety on the equipment.

Please ensure you are reading regularly with your children at home and that you sign their reading records. Please ensure your child brings their book bag into school every Thursday so we can change their book.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to speak to either Miss Olley or Miss Rogerson. We are always happy to support you in any way we can and are available before and after school.

Thank you for your continued support

Miss Olley and Miss Rogerson
