One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News! w/b: 1.5.23

What a wonderful week we have had, take a look at what we’ve been up to…

Read, Write Inc

This week we continued our Read, Write Inc. lessons. We have been working extremely hard in our groups and are getting the hang of our sounds, by having lots of practise! We are really improving our writing and remembering to use full stops and capital letters.

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 have been partitioning and recombining numbers using tens and ones! We have worked so hard on this and are really starting to understand the value of two-digit numbers. Next week we will be looking at money!


This week in computing we have explored the fun app ‘ScratchJr’ We had fun using commands to move programming blocks, which helped us move the sprite! We were able to change the background for our moving figure and even changed the amount of times in the algorithm! Take a look at what we got up to! Next week in our thematic lessons we will be focussing on Science and History!


This week we have been focussing on being part of our class team! We have been sharing well, using kind words and even played a game of ‘find someone who’ based on great qualities that are shown within the class.

Love to Learn:

This week we would love for you to pick a range of toys at home and describe their materials. What are they made out of and what are their properties. I.e. Soft, flexible, hard, transparent…

Other news:  

Sports Project will remain on Tuesdays.

Swimming is on Thursdays. Children will need to bring a towel, goggles and swimming costume/trunks

Doors will continue to open in the morning at 8:30am. Registration will be at the slightly earlier time of 8:45am (doors close at this time)

Read at 3 - Every Friday at 3 our doors will be open for you to come in and read with your child, please note, this will be for the full 15 minutes and children should not leave any earlier. Their books will be set up and ready for you to come in and enjoy listening to their wonderful reading.

Please listen to your child read as much as possible at home and record this in their reading records. Every week, one child from each class will receive a reading certificate in our Chilton Heroes assembly and there are also individual class prizes to be won :)
