Welcome to week 7!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the lovely weather we have been having.
Tomorrow is forecast to be a lot warmer than we are use to so please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school tomorrow.
Tomorrow we will be completing our writing assessment for our progress folder. The children will be introduced to the writing topic and we will have time to have an oral discussion before they have to write, completely unassisted, for 20 minutes. These will them be collected, marked and moderated by the Year 1 team. They will be in your child’s folder which will be handed out on the last Thursday of term.
We are working hard to learn our words to our assembly song and will continue to practice our assembly each day. Tomorrow I will be assigning speaking parts. Over the coming days once all speaking roles have been assigned and children are happy with them I will send home a copy so children can practice these at home. Daily assembly practice will be scheduled into my timetable from now on until our assembly. Children have been bringing in their favourite books and discussing what they are wanting to wear. Can I please ask that all costumes/clothing be brought in CLEARLY LABELLED, in a bag, by Thursday next week. Costumes don’t need to be over the top as children will need to sit, stand and dance in a small space on the day.
In Maths we are continuing to learn about data and the turn around mental maths strategy. The children are getting really good at posing questions and finding the best way to collect data.
Tomorrow we will be working with Misss Fletcher’s class to create an iMovie on weather. The filming will take part in Miss Fletcher’s classroom while the rest of the two classes will combine and be in our room to complete our HASS open night activity.
I will be away on Thursday so Mrs J will take the class for the day.
I hope you all have a great week.
