This Week in Class 1...

Well what a great finish to another lovely week in Class one a dressing up day for Children in Need. The children have enjoyed colouring pictures, making masks, completing spotty maths challenges and dressing up in spots! Well done to all the children who took part in the colouring competition and a BIG thank you to everyone who made, bought and ate cakes after school today to help Otterton School raise some very important funds for Children in Need. You should all be proud.

Also this week the Year one children have really knocked my socks off during our phonics sessions because we have introduced the a-e split digraph and they have all had a really good go at spelling some words using this sound. Reception children have also impressed me by having such a can do attitude towards forming their letters and words on their whiteboards and in their books.

The children have been looking at ordering positions into 1st, 2nd and third this week and have shown a great understanding of this. We had animals lining up and racing, along with questions that really got the Year ones thinking about which colour they need to use!

In RE the children looked at giving and receiving gifts and how that makes us feel, along with what would be our favourite gift to give to others (which worked well with our Children in Need activities). 


Next Week...

The Year one children now have spellings in their books that come home and should be practiced at home please. I then give them new words the following week. We are all working through the list of words the children should be able to write when they are at the end of year one. This is just to help the children to start recognising those words and being able to use them in their writing. The reception have words in their book bags that they need to read at home (not write), working in the same way as the flashcards.


Can I please remind parents that PE kits are needed on a Tuesday and Thursday and Allotment kit is needed on a Friday for Class 1. If anyone would like to help out at the allotment or offer an hour here and there towards hearing the children read throughout the week, your support would be greatfully recieved.
