We have had a fantastic second week in Year One! The children have all settled in well, are getting used to the school routines and finding their way around.
We are revising the Phase 3 sounds. Over the last week and a half we have covered sh, ch, th, ng, ai, igh, ee & oa. Please watch the video below with your child to help them recap the sounds. Can they shout out the sound before the teacher says it?
We have been recapping place value of numbers to 20. We can now confidently count forwards and backwards to 20 and are beginning to mentally work out 1 more and 1 less than numbers to 20.
Challenge: Can you write all of the numbers to 20? Can you make sure that they are all the right way around?
In English we have been practising spelling our full names. We have also been learning the Year One non-negotioables for writing:
. Capital letters for the start of sentences and names
. Finger spaces between every word
. Full stops at the end of sentences
. Cursive handwriting
. All sentences must make sense
We have been doing lots of fun and learning in our continuous provision too! We have played hook-a-duck phonics, fed the teddy bears the right amounts of food at the picnic and raced each other to match up capital and lower case letters. Take a look at our learning this week:
