Hope you and your family are keeping well.
Thank you for the emails you have sent. It's so lovely to see the children- we miss them so much!
It seems such a long time since we have been together.

It will be lovely for you to learn about seeds and plants and get planting!
We would love to see photos of you in the garden.
If you would like to email us with a message from the children or you would like a chat yourself please get in touch.
Take care and God Bless,
Mrs Lundqvist & Ms Grainger.

When you have listened to the story could you act it out for your family?
You can plant seeds you could choose to plant vegetables or flowers.
Can you find out what other vegetables grow underground?
Could you ask mummy or daddy if you can help prepare some vegetables, you could make some soup.
We also thought you might like to design your very own garden!
Can you take some pictures of the garden and email them to us for us to see!

Write a letter and post it to a friend or neighbour who may be self isolating.
Build a den with blankets and towels using tables and chairs- can you camp out in your den?
Put the spices in the kitchen in alphabetical order.

In Year One 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’.
We have read a book called ‘Michael Recycle’ and have been looking at what happens to our rubbish.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year One Team.
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.
We are currently 'revamping' our curriculum so watch this space!!
