Year 1 2017 - 2018

Mr Papadopoulos

Well here we are a new academic year already.  I will endevour to keep this up to date and put lots of information on for you! 

Your children have been awesome since returning - and I really mean that!  They have sat and worked with such maturity, completing lessons in maths, english, geography, handwriting, phonics and shared reading already!  Don't worry, we still have alot of fun along the way.  For example, today we created our own 3 Little Pigs drama which they performed in front of their peers.  Truly amazing for a first go at acting.

A newsletter will go out at the end of next week detailing the coming term with details of homework, spellings and reading.  We will be keeping the same days for changing books.

 

 

We are flying!  It is a great advantage knowing the children as I already know their many strengths and areas for development.  I am just so impressed with the maturity they are demonstrating.  We continue to work with numbers - one more, adding, subtraction, counting in 2's and 10's, odd and even.  We are developing story writing skills currently.  Our class line is 'think it, say it, write it' when writing.  I am looking for finger paces, full stops and capitals and it making sense.  This will continue all year.  Spelling scores are now in guided reading records and will be updated weekly by my exceptional team of parent helpers :)

 

Well we have nearly made it!  Christmas is coming, children are flagging (and staff!) and we are all ready for a lovely break.  Children will have no homework over the festive break.  It's time for family and rest.  We will come back to the 1960's in spring term with lots of exciting lessons - Mrs Hall loves the Beatles so the children will no doubt be learning some of their songs!  Thank you for all your help and support over this long and busy first term.  We will hit the ground running in the spring term focussing on writing quality and quantity and maths number skills with problem solving.   Have a super Christmas break and see you all in 2018!

 

As we appraoch the end of this short spring term (yes, summer term is next!) please can you practice the yellow submarine words from the Beatles?  Just scroll down the page for the document.  Song can be found on Utube!

Mr P and Mrs Hall
