Hello P1 families,
Can you believe this is the last week of September? It certainly is getting darker, colder and wetter. Please can children come to school with warm and waterproof clothing suitable for outdoor play. 💧☔️
This week also Bike to School week, children are encouraged to cycle each day and Bling your Bike on Wed for the chance to win prizes.
We are still gently introducing our phonic sounds, this week our focus is “p”. Our sounds so far are s,a,t,i and p. Children are beginning to read and write cvc words using these sounds. E.g. Sit, pit, rip, sat etc. they now songs and actions for each new sound.
We continue to learn our Stage 1 key words (se per last weeks post) and these flash cards should be coming home each night in a plastic bag. Children will also have a reading book which they are very excited about. Next week I will send out homework diaries in book bags too. Please note that children learn at different stages and will have different books home, some with pictures to read and some with words. More info on reading will come next week as well as sample daily activities you may wish to do.
Please can you purchase book bags from the office if not already done so as this ensures homework and letters are returned to home and school each day. You can also pop £4 in an envelope and I can get these for the children too.
In Numeracy we are looking at addition in ten and have a school shop set up in class to consolidate this. We are also looking at shape and pattern. We are finding pairs of num bers to make 10 and have been enjoying some activies on topmarks such as this
Our topic is “The Owl who was afraid of the dark”, and we are enjoying playing with toy owl puppets and making masks and doing owl writing. We are also having a lot of relaxation and play in class to practice play with our new friends and have enjoyed mask making, construction and puzzles.
lunches: the menu can be found here. Please note that cheese is not a daily sandwich option so you might want to discuss lunch options with your child.
I hope to have Seesaw up and running soon but I am still awaiting confirmation from some families.
