Friday 26th October, 2018.

What a wonderful first half term we have had! 

The children have continued to be engaged and excited by our lessons.  It really is such a pleasure to teach them. They are thoroughly enjoying the outdoor area and its enhanced provisions daily and embracing our forest school every week. We have also introduced the daily mile, which everyone continues to be thoroughly enjoying and engaging with! 

We are continuing to practice our even numbers chant, the doubling song and now we have learnt a new song!!! ‘Counting in tens’! The children are so confident that Mrs Willis even asked us to perform this in Friday’s assembly. They were amazing!!

Feel free to test your memory and chant this over the weekend. Practice makes perfect!

We continue to celebrate our ‘learner of the week’ every Friday and Kilo the class bear gets to spend the weekend making amazing memories on his adventures. What a lucky bear! I just wanted to take this time to say just how much we all look forward to reading about Kilo's adventures on a Monday morning! He really is one lucky bear with a very fortunate lifestyle!! Please keep the adventures coming, it really is a lovely start to the week! 

It was lovely to catch up with so many of you during parents evening.  If you were unable to make the dates this time I will be happy to meet with you at a date more convenient.  Just pop in and let me know.

It has been a wonderful half term and I have loved getting to know all the children and seeing the progress they have already made. They have worked so hard, I hope you all enjoyed your little sweet treat. Keep up the good work Year One! 

We have been given two brand new Thomas the Tank Engine books this week, that have been specially written to focus on railway safety.  We will be reading these next term as it is especially important for children that live in Magor and Undy to understand about railway safety.  Network Rail have also provided a link to the free downloadable e-Book so you could download this and enjoy the book together.   Here is the link: 


I hope you all have a wonderful half term.

As always, any questions feel free to pop and see me :) 

These are some things you could do any time at home to help you learn....

Read your school book and anything else which interests you regularly!

Practise writing... You could write shopping lists, invitations, letters or even a diary so you can remember all the fun things you do on the weekends!

Practise spelling any words you find tricky and also red words...

Practice writing your numbers, counting, adding and subtracting. Number formation has been our focus this week to ensure the children are forming them correctly, any extra practice on this would be brilliant!
