KS1 Weekly News 13.10.23

We are enjoying our topic There’s no place like home and this week we continue to learn about the countries of the UK.

IHL and 1TS – This week in English we have been reading Katie in Scotland and writing sentences using a capital letter at the beginning, finger spaces between words and a full stop to finish a sentence. Keep practising your speed sounds at home, we are really proud of how hard the children are trying with their writing! In maths, we have been ordering smallest to greatest, looking at ordinal numbers and number lines. In our topic, we have been learning about Scotland – we listened to bagpipes, tried on a kilt and drew a thistle, the national flower. Our story in Mighty Warriors this week was Room on the Broom – Rachel is impressed with our yoga poses and how we are making progress. What a busy week!

1MG – This week the children in 1MG have been working on editing and publishing their work in English and Mr Griffiths is super proud of them all. In maths they have been working on counting in 2, 3, 5, 10’s. Keep working hard Year 2!

Have you been to Scotland? Feel free to send us some photos and we can share them in class.

There are no birthdays in Key Stage 1 this week but Mrs Lach is celebrating hers today! Happy Birthday Mrs Lach!


For the next few weeks we will be practising the set 1 and 2 red words so the children in 1HL and 1TS can confidently read and write the words. Please help your child to practise and encourage them with positive praise – we are really proud of how well they are doing.

1MG spellings go home on a Friday for a spelling test the following Friday.

Please make sure your child brings their reading book and record into school everyday.

PE days are indoor Tuesday and outdoor Thursday – please ensure your child is in the correct PE kit as stated in the uniform policy. Please ensure hair is tied back and no jewellery thank you.
