P1 Info 13.11.23

🔤 Phonics – We aren’t learning any new sounds this week because we have just finished another set. Please continue to support your child with reading and spelling CVC words using their sound flashcards.

📖 Reading – Please continue to support your child to learn their key words and read every night.  Book-bags should be brought to school everyday for reading. 

🔟 Numeracy – We have been learning to add within 10. The children are learning to use lots of different strategies such as using part, part whole models, number lines and the count on method (putting the bigger number in your head and the smaller number on your fingers).

🎶 Nativity – Miss Aitken and I are well underway with Nativity preparation/practice. If your child has a speaking part, they will have brought home lines on Friday, please support your child with reading these lines with expression and volume.

P.E is on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
