Autumn 1 Week 3 STAR OF THE WEEK: Connie

Week Beginning 29th September 2014

Class 13 - you are amazing and turning already into real Y1's - so grown up !  We have been so impressed with your attitude and work this week.  Well done !  Lots of marbles in the jar from us and other teachers who have seen you around school.  We have had fun creating extra characters and stories that the boy and his star could go on;  we've been stretching our brains with subtraction questions and making Christmas cards (of which you will see why next week!)

Here's your preview for this week......

Mrs Johnston Monday morning;  Mrs Moore Monday afternoon.

Tuesday: Dancing with the Stars !

Wednesday: Spellings and Blasting away with Rockets.  

Thursday: ICT and continuing our rockets. 

Friday: Big Solve, Special Mentions


Enjoy the Weekend, Mrs Johnston and Mrs Moore

Just a couple of quick answers to queries this week:

  1. Spellings Although they will be written in books in school on a Wednesday. they can be learnt in anyway, infact trying a few different ways is great and works really well.  Basic letter formation is the same - don't just stick to writing it down if your child is not engaged. Have a go at some of these - written down in zigzag lines, using playdough, coloured in, painted, using foam letters in the bath, breathing on the window and writing in the condensation, getting plate of paint, rolling the wheels of a car in it and driving the letters round . . . . the list is endless !
  2. All About Me Wheel - this will be given out to one person each week.  Once your receive it, is is obvious what to do.  Your child will then have the chance to share it with the class the following Monday.
