Welcome back Year 1.
Don't forget to look up the topic newsletter on the website to see what we will be up to all half term.
Our learning this week:
Weighing - talk to your children about how heavy an object is. Is it heavier or lighter than a pencil? How do you know?
Telling the time to the hour and half hour. Can you practise reading the time on an analogue clock to the hour and half hour?
All weekly words can be found in the back of your child's reading diary. Please continue to work through these words at your child's pace.
We are focussing on reading the words Mr, Mrs and people this week so please have an extra practise at these words.
We have been busy writing cards to the Queen this week and hopefully will recieve a reply in the new year.
The children have had great fun making a tea cup for the postman out of clay. They looked at many different designs of cups, came up with their own designs and made their own tea cups.
During music the children have had the opportunity to make a musical instruments and will perform the story of the Jolly Postman in the coming weeks.
