Happy New Year!!!
We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and are ready for an exciting new term!!
In Year 1 this term our Learning Challenge is 'Has man landed on the moon?'
There is a science and history focus to this learning challenge.
The children will be looking at planets and the solar system. The children will also be learning about Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake.
The children have been extremely excited as we have an alien in our classroom!! A spaceship has crashed on the playground and the alien is now lost!! We will be linking this to our class text 'Beegu'.
Year One children learn to have a phonetic approach to their reading through daily phonic lessons. Children learn sounds made by a letter or letters before blending the sounds together (from left to right) to read a word.
Guided Reading sessions help develop fluent reading, aid comprehension skills and enable children to read for enjoyment.
Children may select a book to take home from our well resourced School Library.
Children are able to choose their own reading books to take home.
We have a cosy reading corner in the classroom.
Learning Challenges are used to link the teaching and learning of all subjects as well as provide an exciting, engaging and interesting curriculum.
Year One children will be presented with the Learning Challenges:
Am I an amazing animal?
Has man landed on the moon?
Mr Stevenson leads an outdoor PE on a Monday morning.
Mrs Sands teaches Gymnastics, Dance or Games on a Thursday.
