Year 1 - Oakwood

Weekly Update (Week ending 14.6.19)

In Oakwood this week:   

The year ones have finished their phonics screening this week and I am so proud of each and every student! We will continu to work hard during our remaining phonics classes.


Our new topic for this last term is By The Seaside. We have already looked at creatures we can find in rock pools (or tide pools) and this week we have started designing our own flip-flops. We will be finishing our designs and bringing them to life this coming week.

 I would like to thank all the parents who came to looks through their child’s book, it was lovely to see you all. 


New spellings for this week are:  sead, bead, theme, be, is. 


Thank you,

Miss Nadeau



This past week we have been learning about fractions of shapes and numbers. Together we have looked at multiple ways of dividing in halves and quarters. Below is an example taken from their Maths books./

THis coming week we will be learning how to count coins and tell time. 


Science and Topic

Our  topic is 'How does your garden grow?'. This week the children have been watering and monitoring their seeds. We have looked closely at different types of seeds and understanding what makes a seed grow. If the children are planting gardens at home, they are encouraged to bring photos of their work to show the classroom. 



Enjoy the great outdoors!  

Please bring library books back for next Monday.


Homework (to be handed in on Friday)

 Please go to and login using those details.  Books and activities have been allocated to each child so give it a go!  Please remember to listen to your child read and read to them.  Try reading a sentence in an expressive voice and get them to repeat that sentence mimicking the same expressiveness.  It will help the children with their fluency and comprehension. 



Tuesday and Thursday:  Please consider getting your child a long sleeve top (without a hood) and tracksuit bottoms for their PE kit as sessions are outdoors and it can be chilly in just a t-shirt and shorts.  Please also consider putting socks in your child's PE kit if they normally wear tights.  


Home reading books will be changed on Thursdays.  Pupils will be reminded to hand in their home reading books on that day; they must remember to take their books out of their bags! Library books will be changed on Mondays (Tuesday next week), kindly bring the library book back for next Tuesday.
