One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News! w/b 12.9.22

What a wonderful week we have had! Have a look at what we have been up to in Year 1…

Read, Write Inc

This week continued our Read, Write Inc. lessons. We have settled in well to our new groups and are working extremely hard!

You may have noticed in each reading folder, there is a sound card and list of red words. Any practise with these at home would be extremely helpful and support your child’s reading and writing at home.


This week in maths we used symbols and words to compare numbers and quantities. We know that the crocodile ALWAYS eats the biggest number! We have also been matching numbers with their quantities, identifying numbers on a number line and representing, reading and writing numbers to 20. Take a look at our wonderful maths learning!



This week we started our wonderful topic… When I grow up. We all came in dressed up as what we wanted to be when we are older. We discussed what we thought was the most important job in the world and used our oracy skills to present our thoughts to the class. We then created our own self-portraits for our Art Part. We looked at how to draw self-portraits, thought about the shapes in our faces and which features stand out, making us unique. Take a look at our awesome art work! We then learnt all about Amelia Earhart and Neil Armstrong. We used key vocabulary such as; ‘In the past…’ We are already enjoying our first ever topic in year 1!

Next week:

Next week we will be continuing to work hard on our sounds, reading and writing in our Read, Write Inc lessons. In Maths, we will be learning to identify odd and even numbers, adding with number bonds within 10 and learning our number bonds to 10. In Topic, we will be enjoying a visit from a nurse, where we will be interviewing them! Learning about Mary Seacole and comparing nurses and hospitals from the past to the present. We will also learn about a range of jobs from the past and discussing why they do not all exist any more.                                 

Love to Learn:

This week we would love for you to match the numbers 1 to 20 to objects around the house (The quantity) For example; you could find 1 apple, 7 grapes or 20 pieces of lego! This can be recorded in any way you wish. I.e. photos, pictures or writing.
