Phonics Screening Check

 

The children have been learning phonics in both Nursery and Reception to help them read words. Phonics teaches children to be able to listen carefully and identify the sounds that make up each word. In year 1, all children in the country will take part in a phonics screening check in June. Over the course of the year, they will be learning a lot of new sounds, but these sounds need to be learnt both in the context of real words and nonsense words.The children will be asked to use their phonic knowledge to read 20 real words and 20 nonsense words (alien words). The children will know when a word is a nonsense word as there will be a picture of an alien next to the word - we say this word is the aliens name and this is why it does not make sense to us.

 

How to help your child at home

 

  • Play lots of sound and listening games

 

  • Read as much as possible

 

  • Encourage children to have a 'good guess'

 

  • Remind children to blend the sounds in the word by pointing to them

 

  • In school the children use the Phonics Play website to help reading real and fake words and play games such as Picnic on Pluto or Buried Treasure

 

 

  • Watch the ‘Mr Thorne Does Phonics’ videos on YouTube

Autumn 1

What a week in year 1! After reading the story ‘Supertato’ we came into class to find the evil peas had caused trouble with our vegetable friends! We rescued our friends and keep them safe while we wrote letters to Supertato asking for his help. The next day our vegetable friends had completely vanished and Supertato had left us a note asking us to make some traps for the peas. We got straight to work, designing and working with our friends to think of the best ways to capture those evil peas and when we came back to class our traps had worked! There were peas in all our traps! We collected them safely and put them back in the freezer where they promised to be good from now on.

In science we have been looking at the different seasons, weather, clothes and any other changes we can find. We put on our coats and went on an autumn walk and spotted lots of fallen, crunchy leaves of different colours, conkers, pine cones and we were fascinated watching our breath on the cold morning.

In History we are looking at toys from the past. We have talked about the differences between toys now and then and the different materials the toys are made from. This week the children have played with Victorian toys and had a go at making their own toys, they made cup and ball games and peg dolls.

We had a lovely time for the Macmillan coffee morning, as well as going into the hall and donating with our grown ups we had our own tea, cake and a chat in class.

We have had such an exciting week this week! We have been predicting the story of the naughty bus and then we were visited by a real naughty bus. We followed the clues in class and found the bus in a pile of beans! He was a naughty AND dirty bus now so we gave him a bath. We then made up our own adventures for the naughty night bus.

The children have worked hard comparing numbers this week, they used cubes and Numicon to make, order and compare the greatest and smallest numbers. They have also enjoyed experimenting with primary colours and mixing different eye colours.
