Hogglestock Hedgehog Class
Our Year 1 Children are taught in Hogglestock Hedgehog Class.
Hogglestock was a talking hedgehog who lived during the reign of Caspian X. You can read about Hogglestock in the book, 'Prince Caspian'.
Our topic this term is 'Rainforests'.
This term our on-going focus in Literacy will be on information texts. The children will also learn to recite some poetry by heart. We will continue to develop the use of capital letters, question marks and use the word 'and' to join words and sentences.
In Numeracy we will be counting across 100 and reading and writing numbers to 100. We will also write and read numbers to 20 in numerals and words. This term the children will learn to solve one-step problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will complete repeating patterns and find missing numbers.
This term PE will be on Monday aftenoon. Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit. ( It will take place outside).
You may have heard all about Hogglestock Hedgehog this week. He will be visiting everyone at some point during the year. Please ask your child to write a sentence, with your help, about their week-end together. Add photos if possible to stick in his book.
Try to read with your child everyday. The children should put their book bag in the box outside the classroom to be changed. This term the books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Children will be given two books each time they are changed. This is to give us more time to hear individual readers.
Spellings will be given out and tested each Friday.
The children will be asked to write the words when an adult reads them out aloud. You may like to ask your child to write a sentence to practise using their spelling words in context.
