Class 1

Welcome to Class 1 Autumn term 2018


In September our topic in Class 1 will be


‘Do you want to be my friend?’


We will be spending lots of time making new friends, thinking about how to be a good friend, finding out about each other and how we can work together in our new classroom. We will be sharing lots of stories and developing our excellent listening skills to support all of our future learning. We will spend lots of time talking about our families and the things that we enjoy doing at home, also finding out about any shared interests that we have.


In numeracy this term we will be concentrating on recognising numbers, ordering numbers and counting to 20. This will include number hunts, ordering number cards and counting a variety of objects. We will spend time counting as a group whilst marching, clapping, jumping etc. We will also become familiar with 2D/ 3D shapes, remembering shape names and looking at their properties. In phonics, reading and writing we will recap and learn Set 1 RWI simple sounds (m,a,s,d,t,i,n etc.) and also continue to use Fred Frog to help us blend and segment words. We will be mark making in many ways and continue practicing writing independently.


Please let your child bring in to school any special things that they have made or collected over the summer holidays or any learning you have been busy doing at home to share with us all and our new friends smiley.


We look forward to reading your home – school learning journey and finding out all of the exciting things you have been up to over the summer. Remember, the diaries are an excellent way to support our assessment of your child by sharing any family experiences or home learning. Please add any comments and pictures where possible, thank you!


Please can you ensure that this home/school learning journey is returned to school in September.


Many thanks, Miss Down and Miss Ede
