Autumn 1 Weekly News



Weekly News 8th September 2021


We have had a great first week in Year One. The children are settling into Year 1 really well and are all working very hard.


This week we have begun our topic on Growing Up and we have enjoyed reading the book 'Once There Were Giants' and have been talking about how babies and children change as they grow up.


In our phonics sessions we have been practising our handwriting. We have been working hard to form letters correctly, sitting letters correctly on the line. 


In Maths we have been sorting, couting and ordering objects.


The children had their first PE sessions this week. We were so impressed with how well the children all got changed for PE. They were able to dress and undress with little help and managed to get their clothes back in their own bags without 'getting mixed up'. You might have noticed that some children came home with clothes inside out or back to front, for the first few weeks we will be celebrating their indepeance and not correcting their mistake. Obviously, if children are uncomforttable we will help them redress correctly.


Thank you for your help, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments or concerns.


The Year One Team.
