Year 1 - Caterpillar, Peacock & Otter

Welcome to Year 1



Friday 18th September


Dear Parent / Carer,


The children have had another fun filled week of learning. In English they have continued to look at the story of The Colour Monster. On Monday the children had lots of fun making their own monster using play dough and other resources. They then gave their monster a name and labelled the parts of the body. Later on in the week they wrote sentences describing their monster.


In Maths the children have been learning to read, write and count within 20. Using different recourses the children have practised their counting skills and practised ordering numbers starting with the smallest.


Reading & High Frequency Words


Thank you for all of your support at home with the reading and testing of words. As the children learn more new sounds the reading will become easier, please use the Phonic mats attached to your child’s reading record to help them recognise the sounds in their reading books.



Many thanks,


Year 1 Team

Mrs Saunders, Mrs Boxell, Mrs George and Miss Morinan.
