Year 1 - Oakwood

Weekly Update (Week ending 18.10.19)

In Oakwood this week:   

In English we have been writing about our exciting visit from Falconry UK. The children really enjoyed getting up close to the birds of prey and finding out more about them. They then wrote recounts about the experience and produced some fantastic work. 


In maths lessons this week we have focused on subtraction using different methods, such as our knowledge of number bonds and counting back using a numberline. We will continue to work on subtraction next week. 


In phonics we have been learning to write words with different ie sounds in them such as the igh trigraph in light, high, the split diagraph i_e in bike, fine and the y in sky, fly and cry.   


In topic this week we have been planning  and designing puppets that the children will start making/sewing next week.  


In science we have been learning about how to display data in a bar graph and continuing to look at different types of weather. 


The children's home learning books have gone out again today and we would appreciate if they could be brought back in by next Wednesday so we have time to look at and celebrate the work completed before next Friday. The children have really enjoyed sharing some of their completed homework with the class.   


This week's spellings will be tricky words: me she we here there



For some children who can already confidently spell these words, other words to practice would be because, then, first and after. 


P.E. is every Monday and Wednesday. Mrs Tozer will take some of the lessons and others will be taken by our PE leader Miss Clarke.  


Thank you for your continued support. 


Mrs O'Connor and Mrs Tozer
