Welcome Back Year One!
We hope you had a great half term and did lots of fun things.
During this half term, we have lots of exciting things planned and I can’t wait to get started! You have all worked so hard last term and I know that we will keep this up!
In topic, we are beginning to look at 'Homes’. We will be learning all about homes in the past and make comparisons with household objects from the past and present. In R.E we will be exploring salvation and learning about why Easter is important to Christians. In our literacy, we will begin to explore different traditional tales and really focus on securing capital letters and full stops in our sentences. In maths, we will begin to look at fractions (finding halves and quarters of shapes and amounts). We will also be looking at time (o'clock and half past).
At home you can continue to work on those Phase 3/Phase 5 sounds, counting forward and backward to 100 and those number bonds to 20. I am very proud of all that you are achieving so keep up the hard work!

Happy New Year and Welcome Back to Year 1!
Welcome back everyone I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and have enjoyed your rest!
I am really looking forward to this half term and all the lovely things that we have planned. During this term, we will continue to develop our working skills and becoming even more independent in class.
We will begin to look at traditional tales in literacy and continuing to develop our reading and writing skills. In topic we look forward to thinking about our local area. We will begin by using maps to find Cradley CofE and plan our journey to school. We will enjoy learning about the months of the year and seasons and investigating maps and globes.
I am so impressed in how you have all settled into year 1 and have shown lots of enthusiasm for all the exciting topics that we have covered so far with many more to come.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me!
Miss Pugh, Mrs T and Mrs Griffiths
Hope you've all had a lovely half term! We have got such an exciting half term leading up to Christmas. This half term we will continue to encourage independence and learn lots of new and exciting things along the way. In English we will be beginning by reading the story 'Lost and Found' where we will be thinking about the different characters and their friendship leading up to writing a retell of the story. In Maths we will continue to work on securing our counting to 100 and the quick recall of our number bonds to 10. In topic we will be focusing on 'Hot and Cold' looking at different countries on the globe, the changes in weather and creating pictures in art using hot and cold colours.
I can’t wait to begin our festive activities in the lead up to
Christmas. What an exciting 7 weeks ahead!
