In Literacy this week we will be reflecting on the exciting experiences we have had in Year One, and we will write letters to our friends in Reception to help them prepare for their exciting year coming up.  We will recap on what we know about how to structure a letter, and how to use adjectives to make our writing interesting and informative.


This week in Themed Learning, the children will learn how to create different textures using paint. We will use ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ as a stimulus and look very carefully at the techniques Eric Carle uses. The children will also develop their photography skills and use the iPads to add affects and edit their photographs.


Puffer Fish- Phase 6- The Puffer Fish phonics group will be focusing on the use of prefixes. This week we will focus on adding  ‘un’ to the start of words. We will focus on the vocabulary- unhappy, unkind, unlucky, untie, untrue, unwrap and undo.

Starfish – Phase 5 - This week the children will learn the alternative pronunciation of ‘ow’ and ‘ie’. They will learn to spell polysyllabic words such as: window, lower, fielding, denied. They will also learn to read and spell the High Frequency Words: thought, saw and any.

Jelly Fish- Phase 4 – Spelling and sounding out is improving week by week. This week’s focus is on previous vocualy taught and remembering them. We are focusing this week on; pond, desk, grab, slug, snail and plum.

Stingray – Next week the Stingrays will be looking at how ‘u’ can be pronounced in three different ways. They will learn the alternative pronunciations in the spellings sudden, pudding and human. They will also practice reading the high frequency words again, different, thought, any and saw.

Octopus - This week the Octopus group will be looking at reading and writing longer sentences with consonant sounds such as mp, lt, nt, st.

We will be reviewing all tricky words that we have covered so far.

Sharks – Sharks will be looking at the ‘oi’ and ‘ear’ sounds, such as in words like coin, oil, join, tear, year and beard.


In Maths this week Year 1 will be focusing on the topic ‘Weight’. Each Year 1 class will have some time in the cooking room to weigh out ingredients to  consolidate their knowledge on measuring and recording weight and make some delicious treats in the process! They will then move on to estimating the weight of objects and chances to problem solve too.


Maths- measurements, heavy, heavier, heaviest, light, lighter, lightest, grams, kilograms, scales.
