Year Ones - First half of Autumn term

It has been a great start to the year and the children are growing in independence and becoming more confident in their maths and literacy skills. We are currently working on our third literacy unit where we are learning how to write instructions using the funny book 'How to wash a woolly mammoth'. We have also been working on developing our writing stamina with lots of sentence writing in our phonics sessions. 
We have spent the majority of this term's maths sessions developing our understanding of number. We have been ordering and comparing numbers and becoming more familiar with using and understanding number lines. This week we have just started our new unit on addition and subtraction by learning to understand part, part, whole diagrams. 
In our phonics work we have just completed the first part of phase 5 in which we have learnt 20 new graphemes and the sounds that match them as well as some new tricky words. In the next part of the phase we will be practising these new sounds and learning about the different ways one grapheme can be pronounced for example 'c' in cat or 'c' in centipede. 
More updates on our learning will be added to Seesaw along with photographs of work. Please update permissions on Arbor as soon as you can so that we know you are happy for us to post images of your child learning on Seesaw.
