Week beginning 17th September

Good morning,

We’re about to start our second full week of school and there’s a lot going on already!

We will be finishing our guided reading work on “How To Live Forever” and moving on to group work.

Our Literacy work on non-fiction texts will also finish this week, with our hot task on Thursday. We have focused on sentence starters, and the layout of a non-fiction text. We will also be looking at the children’s prior knowledge of the Common Exception Words.

By the end of Y1 they should be able to read and spell:

the, a, do, to, today, of, said, says, are, were, was, is, his, has, I, you, your, they, be, he, me, she, we, no, go, so, by, my, here, there, where, love, come, some, one, once, ask, friend, school, put, push, pull, full, house, our

and by the end of Y2 they should be able to read and spell:

door, floor, poor, because, find, kind, mind, behind, child, children, wild, climb, most, only, both, old, cold, gold, hold, told, every, everybody, even, great, break, steak, pretty, beautiful, after, fast, last, past, father, class, grass, pass, plant, path, bath, hour, move, prove, improve, sure, sugar, eye, could, should, would, who, whole, any, many, clothes, busy, people, water, again, half, money, Mr, Mrs, parents, Christmas

In our mathematics work, we will carry on looking at place value and what the digits mean in a two digit or three digit number.

In our PE, we are fortunate that we have Emma Woods, a PE specialist for this half term.  She is teaching the children about dance, using music from the Greatest Showman.

We’ve also got something exciting in the pipeline which you’ll find out more about as the half term wears on! (I’m excited!)

Lastly, the children will be moving places this week to allow for group work to happen.  The children know that their groups are not ability based, and that they will change several times over the year so that we can learn to work with different people – sometimes sitting with our friends isn’t the most effective choice…

As always, if you have any questions, comments or queries, let me know [email protected]
