This week we are learning…


We will be looking at shapes this week. We will be naming and describing 2D and 3D shapes. To help your child you could see how many shapes you can find at home and identify how many sides, corners (2D) and faces (3D) a shape has.




We will be continuing learning our sounds and reading with expression. To help at home keep reading your sounds and the words at the front and back of your home reading diary by sight (no sounding out).



Under the Sea

This week we will be writing our very own under the sea adventure stories. To help improve your children’s writing enjoy them to write their own sentences at home thinking about capital letters, full stops and power words.




We will be continuing to play games in P.E. developing our throwing and catching skills as well as our team work.


If you would like to know more please ask a member of the Year 1 Team.
