Class 1 Newsletter

1st April 2019

Dear Parents,


Class 1 Weekly Update
Week commencing 1st April


What a great day all the children had at Ilfracombe aquarium on Thursday. We have all enjoyed hearing about all the adventures in class 1 today and Miss Horrell can’t believe that a seagull ate Charlie’s ice cream!

This week our focus is on Easter activities. The children will be doing a variety of different Easter activities including an Easter egg hunt, making Easter nests and making bunny ears, as well as the usual Easter themed activities in the continuous provision.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who came in to support the Easter bonnet making this morning. We clearly have some very talented and creative parents and children in class 1. The standard was very high and we were very impressed with the children’s finished designs. We can announce that the winners of the Easter bonnet competitions are Max Tickle and Jacob Molyneux. Both children will be bringing some a large Easter egg in celebration of their efforts. May Baldwin and Charlie Bawden made fantastic Easter bonnets at home that the class 1 team were so impressed with. Well done to you both!

Please don’t forget the Easter assembly in the school hall at 2pm this Thursday. The children have been working hard making bunny ears and learning a song.


This week our phoneme focus is /i/. If you have anything at home that starts with the letter /i/ that you would like to add to our /i/ table please bring it in. The reception children are learning to write the letter pre cursively and the activities within the setting will link to the five sounds that we have taught this term – /s/, /a/, /t/, /p/ and /i/. After the Easter holidays we will recap all of these phonemes before continuing to learn new sounds.

In between the Easter activities happening this week, the Reception children will be continuing their work on Rosie’s Walk. They will be building up to writing their own story involving prepositional language, such as inside, around, over.



This week the children will be concluding their work on addition and subtraction ready to start a new block of learning after the Easter holidays.


Thank you for all your support and encouragement this term. We would like to wish you all a super Easter break and enjoy the beautiful weather that is expected. We look forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday 24th April.

Kind regards

The Class 1 Team
