Well done to all, I think we are back in the swing of things now! We have completed 2 weeks of Jack and the Flum Flum Tree by Julia Donaldson which has allowed us to explore how we stay safe in school and avoid the moozles (or covid-19 in our case, the moozles sounds much nicer!) as well as positive thinking and resilience. I mean without resilience and positive thinking how would Jack have succeeded in his adventure if he didn't stay calm, not get his "knickers in a twist" and use the wonders he found in his patchwork sack creatively to fix any problem they faced.  He never gave up!  This story was read by Mrs Leyland over lockdown and so can be found on the teacher story page if you'd like to have a watch. 

We have also discussed how to be a good class team, how we can suport each others learning and ensure everyone is happy at school.  We have read the story 'How to Fill a Bucket',this is a child friendly way of explaining how to treat each other with respect and kindness and that this will in turn fill our own 'bucket' when we see others enjoying our company and returning our smile!

You will find the letter sent out by parent pay in the document section below.  For more information on the next topic of 'Fun with Fairy Tales' please see our curriculum page.

Thank you for your support from the whole year 1 team :-)

Star Words  

You should find a star word sheet in your book bag which will come home on Monday.  These will have a range of the common exception and tricky words that your child must learn by sight over the course of the year.  If you can read through these as often as possible it will have a big impact on your child's reading particularly if phonics doesn't come easy to them, as this allows them to recognise a good bank of words on a page with minimal effort! It is designed to see how many words they can read in a minute and the amount should increase over the week building confidence and a feeling of success.  We will check the words in school and as long as with us they read the words within a minute accurately we will swap it for another sheet.  If they are not quite secure we will leave it another week to really consolidate their

quick recall. We are aware that some children may already recognise the words on the sheet and that is great! See if they can spell the words, it's surprising how even the simplest of words don't transfer over to their writing until they are much more secure with them.  If they can spell them in isolation the next step will be to see if they can put them in a sentence.
