Monkeys Planning for week beginning 20th January

Next week we have our annual visit from Bugtopia! It is an amazing opportunity for your child to learn about living creatures and their habitats and to touch and hold the animals if they are happy to do so. We would like to remind you that we are asking for a £4.00 donation towards the cost of the visitors.

Following on from the visit, our focus text will be The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. We will also be recounting the visit in key worker groups using photo prompts as a visual aid. 

In maths we will be exploring positional language of the toy bugs, as well as continuing to learn number recognition and counting to and beyond 5.

Tuesday is the first day of parent consultations which will continue into the next week. Please see a member of staff if you haven’t yet made an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.

Zebras, Pandas and Tigers Planning for week beginning 20th January

Our focus text for next week is ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ written by Giles Andreae and illustrated by David Wojtowycz.
In Literacy, we will be drawing creatures that we observed during our visit from Bugtopia on Monday and using interesting words to describe them.

In Maths, we will be looking at counting back on a number track to help us solve simple subtraction problems.
The children will be making clay snakes and working on a large scale collaborative project to be displayed in the school hall.

Just to remind you that we are asking for a voluntary contribution of £4.00 towards the cost of Bugtopia.

The children have brought home new sets of keywords and new sounds recently. Thank you to those families that practise reading and sounds regularly at home. This is having a very positive impact on your child’s reading and writing.

Please could we encourage you to collect sponsors for the Inspired by Sport event taking place in school on Friday 24th January.
Many thanks for your continued support.

Year 1 Planning for week beginning 20th January

We are looking forward to our trip to Milton Keynes Museum next Wednesday (for Leopards and Giraffes) and Thursday (for Lions).  Please make sure your child arrives at school at our usual start time and wears school uniform, comfortable shoes and a coat.  We will be finding out about the lives and experiences of people during Victorian times.  

In Maths we are continuing to rotate around the measuring topics of weight, length and capacity.  Please take any opportunity that arises to talk to your child about measuring around the home e.g. weighing ingredients, comparing length, measuring how tall you are, talking about how much liquid is in a container.

On Friday 24th January an olympic athlete will be visiting us - we are excited to find out who it is and what sport they represent.  Children will need their PE kit in school as they will need to wear their trainers/plimsolls to take part in an activity with the athlete.  

Thank you for your support.
