Phonics Screening test
Our Year 1 phonics screening test is coming up. It will take place week commencing 10th June. We have been busy practising at school and any extra practise you can do at home will also help!
Here is a link to a website which has some good games to play which can help.
Common Exception Words
It is expected that most children are able to read these words in books and spell them in their writing by the end of Year 1.
This term we have been learning all about growing!
In science we have been learning the names of different plants and naming the different parts of the plants. We planted beans and we are busy watering them every day to see how they grow.
In English we have been exploring the story of Jack and The Beanstalk. We wrote a letter from Jack to his Mum. We have been focusing on extended our sentences using adjectives, conjunctions and similes.
We have linked our growing theme to our music lessons by exploring mini-beasts and the habitat they live in.
In Maths we have been learning how to make equal groups and recognising when groups are unequal.
In ICT we have been talking about how to keep safe on the internet and all about the different forms of technology we see in everyday life.
We all had a fantastic time at Testwood Lakes. We did pond dipping, explored the wormery, learnt what a plant needs to survive and met a tree!!
Here are a couple of photos from our trip. If you would like to see some more photos from the trip please speak to your child's class teacher.
