Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Room 1


Good Afternoon everyone!

We have had a great week back in Room 1. The boys and girls have settled well back into school life and have been very busy learning lots of new things.

In Literacy this week we were learning the sounds ‘g’ and ‘l’. We can pronounce, identify and recognise this sound and letter names. We can identify words with these sounds at the start middle and end.  Ask your child to show you the action for these sounds. We have also been learning new common words this week, go got and get. We carried out lots of fun task to help us to read and spell these words.

As part of our reading this week, we read the book Spinderella. The boys and girls enjoyed making lots of connections with this book. Including seeing a spider and playing football.

In Numeracy we have been continuing our counting up to 30 orally. The boys and girls have been working hard at counting in 2s and 10s and have enjoyed learning some new songs to help us with this. We are continuing to work on our addition focus and looked at completing missing number sums. In Maths our new focus is Data Handling. We looked at what data is and why we collect data. We created a pictograph of our favourite colours and then the boys and girls enjoyed the chance to create their own pictographs. Please see some picture below.

As part of our Health and Wellbeing focus we are looking at our Rights as children. We focused on the right to be safe. The boys and girls discussed the people that help make and keep them safe.

In PE we will be looking at different ball sports and our focus for the next couple of weeks will be hockey. The boys and girls really enjoyed the chance to get the hockey sticks out and worked on how to hold a hockey stick and passing the ball to their partner.

Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Kerr and Mrs Ventre
