Autumn 1 - September/October 2020
Welcome back everyone! It is so lovely to have the children all together in school again. We have already made a great start in Year 1. Our first Enquiry question is "What makes Stanstead special?" where we will be learning all about our school and the local area, which includes making maps and learning the compass directions.
In English we have read Rosie's Walk, drawn our own story map and used it to help us retell the story. We will continue to link our English learning with our Enquiry, by designing our own treasure maps and writing instructions as to how to find the treasure.
In Maths we have been exploring numbers to 10 in different ways to get to know them really well. This includes finding one more and one less, counting backwards and sorting objects into groups.
We are lucky to have brand new decodable reading book system which is divided into: Pink A, Pink B, Red A, Red B, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange and Turquoise. These books are fully phonetically decodable and align with our daily Phonics teaching. Children will receive a new book each week to take home and get to know really well. They also have the chance to earn fantastic badges for different reading milestones. Children will be rewarded when they reach 10, 25, 50, 100, 150 and 200 reads! This includes reading done both at home and school.
