Some highlights from the Autumn term

In R.E. we looked at 'Creation'. 

We created our own pictures, using computers, paint, collage. We created models using 

'Playdoh', 'Lego' and boxes.

 

 

We used our new 'Godly Play' objects, to look at what God created and discussed what he created in the beginning and the order of creation.

Phonics

 

Year 1 is a really important time to get to grips with phonics. To be confident readers and writers, children need to be able to sound out words. For example, if we see the word 'wheel', we break it down into 'wh', ee, and l. Have a go at some of the free games on the 'Phonics play' website and keep talking, sounding out words! (Please note you will only have access to the free resources on 'Phonics Play' unless you subscribe at home. Children do not have a school login sorry.)
