Marpool Primary School

Believe, Achieve, Succeed

Year 1

Welcome to Chestnut and Willow Base!

 This week, we have been:

writing up our non-chronological reports.  We have included headings and sub-headings  to organise our information for the reader.  We have even included a sketch of a butterfly, using the skills we have learnt in our art sessions this half term.  We are hoping to share our reports with the younger children.

In our PE sessions we developing our ball skills so that we can become experts at games such as football and netball.  This week we are learning how to push the ball with the insides of our feet, keeping control at all times.

In Phonics this week we will be learning the sounds: ea / ir / ou / oy 

learnt the spellings: push pull full 

In Maths we have been focussing on tens and ones and place value.

To support us at home, you might: 

Ask me to tell you some facts about my favourite animal.  Can I research to find out more?  Can I find out a fact that nobody else would know?

Can I practise counting forwards and backwards to 50?  Can I start at different points and count forwards and backwards from that number?

In our PSED sessions we have talking about healthy eating.  I wonder if you can explore this together at home?

Continue to share reading experiences at home.  Share your new reading book.  Remember to write in your Reading Record each time you read.
