In our class we have Miss Francis and Miss Lynch helping us with our learning. We have been settling into year one after our long summer break. We are enjoying learning new things in year one and are working hard to get used to our new routines. We have PE twice a week; Thursday morning and Friday afternoon. We need to keep our PE kits in school as we may still need them for other active tasks sometimes. Our PE kit needs to have black shorts, red t-shirt and black pumps.
In year one we still have our reading books which we will be bringing home every day and need to practice reading at least a couple of pages every night. To help us learn we need to talk about what we have read and make predictions about what we think will happen and why. We will also be practicing this in class. As we are now doing some trickier work we will be bringing homework home with us every week. It will be given out on a Friday and needs to be in by the Thursday of the following week.
This term our topic is Me and My Town. We have been talking about Houghton Regis and sharing our knowledge of the area and looking at some old photos of it to see how it has changed. We have also been looking at the seasons and have been talking about how they change.
In English we have been reading a book called Five Minutes Peace. In the story Mum wants five minutes peace and goes to take a peaceful bath but her children keep interrupting. We have been sequencing the events in the story and have worked on developing story maps to allow us to retell the story.
Keep checking back as we will share what we have been doing.
