Class 1 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 1
Teacher: Mrs Mooney
Our text in English this half term is Toys in space by Mini Grey. Our focus will be on story writing and we will be using the text to explore grammar and punctuation, as well as developing descriptive language. The children will learn to identify adjectives and verbs and will use the suffix ending ‘-ed’ to put verbs into the past tense.
The children are heard to read daily, either through guided reading lessons or one to one reading. We also have a daily phonics session. The children are introduced to a new sound and then practise reading and writing words containing that sound. We also work on common, irregular spelling.
Our class book for this half term is The boy who grew dragons by Andy Shepherd.
Our PE day is Wednesday and the children should come to school wearing their PE kit.
Reading books are changed every Monday and Thursday. Please make sure they are in school on those days. We encourage children to read as much as possible at home.
Spellings are set every Monday for the following Friday. They can be downloaded each week from Google Classroom.
Maths activities are set on MyMaths.co.uk. The children have a login for this website.
Additional resources to support home learning
The children have a login for NumBots. The online games are a great way to develop mental maths skills. The same login can be used to access Times Table Rock Stars.
PhonicsPlay.co.uk has games to develop reading and spelling skills.
I am very happy to answer any questions or to listen to any concerns you may have. Please contact me through the school office.
