Good Afternoon Class 1,

Another busy week in Class 1, which on top of our usual activities we also managed to squeeze in a trip to Mr. Richardson’s farm!


At the farm the children were given a guided tour of the grain store, vehicle outbuildings and listened to how the Richardson family farm the local area and the produce that they make. The children were also given the opportunity to ask questions all about farming which were answered brilliantly by Mr. Richardson.


In maths the children continued their work on place value. This week we explored representations of numbers and numbers as words.


In English the children have continued with our learning linked to character descriptions. However, we had a focus on the use of ‘and’ to join ideas together in a sentence as well as using capital letters and full stops. Next week, we are going to complete our descriptions of Cyril and then the children will choose a character from either The Lion Inside or The Gecko and the Echo to apply their learning independently.

Thank you so much for all of your support last week in filming your child reading. We have watched a range of the videos in classed which that children have enjoyed greatly. I have also watched all of the videos and I was blown away by the enthusiasm of the children and their effort in applying the skills learnt in RWI sessions.

On Monday the children will be bringing home two books (a paper style book and a hard copy) and will do so for the rest of the half-term. The hard copy book will form the basis of one piece of homework linked to RWI; please see details below: #

RWI Home learning:

Practice your  story green words and red words from your home reading book on a piece of paper at home. These can be found on the How to help your child read this book page.

Challenge: Can you use the words in sentences?

Your second piece of homework is a maths game linked to our learning from this week:

On this game the children need to match the word to the numeral. To begin with I suggest the children choose 1-10 and if they become confident they can move to 1-20. I would also recommend choosing the relaxed mode. They do not need to complete 1-100 nor 1-1000.

Have a great weekend.

Mr. Mallison
