Term 5 Week 1
This week we have been learning how to show the value of digits in a number by regrouping and exchanging into tens and ones. We are all superstars at doing this!
Good to be ME!
We have started looking at why it is good to be us/me! We discussed that every single person in the world is special! We spoke about why it is good to be us and had a fantastic discussion together. This is being implemented throughout the whole school, on our mission to think more positively about ourselves. At the end of term there will be a celebration and parade. (More details will be provided nearer the time.)
You will see a few slight changes over the next week in year one’s morning routine. We are starting to introduce children to ‘Morning Journals.’ This will be your child’s diary, they will need to complete an activity on the board i.e. how are you feeling today? What did you have for breakfast etc. Then they will have an opportunity to write whatever they please in their journal. This will be followed by a well-being activity, such as Yoga! This is in preparation for their transition into year 2 and also an opportunity to express their feelings and develop their writing skills.
“My Home Town”
Where we grow up plays a huge part in our lives – shaping who we are, what we do, who we know and where we go! For your home learning project for ‘Good to be Me’, over the course of Term 5, we would like you to create something that tells us all about what ‘My Home Town’ means to you. This home learning can take any form – there is no right or wrong way but you can be as creative as you like!
- Swimming is on Thursdays. Please avoid putting children in tights and bikinis (If possible.)
- Please remember to tie hair back.
- The sun has been shining, please be prepared for hotter weather. I.e. hats, sun cream.
- Children are always encouraged throughout the day to have a drink of water. There is also plenty of opportunities at break and lunch times to have a drink. So please ensure they have a water bottle.
