Miss Gaff - Teacher
Welcome to Lilac.
I'm Miss Gaff the Lilac Class teacher.
Together with Mrs Shaw, Miss Wilson and Ms Smart, we are going to have lots of fun learning new things!
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with you all.
Monday 14th October 2019
Thank you for your continued support with reading at home!
Well done to our star of the week Frankie for trying really hard with his handwriting and trying his best to hear the sounds in the words to help him spell. Keep it up Frankie!
This week Year 1 will be learning number bonds to 10, partitioning numbers 6 and 7 and adding 2,3 and 4 to any number to 20 by counting on. In English, we will be continuing our book 'Bedtime for Monsters' and seeing if we can create our own versions of the story.
New spellings have been sent home for the children to learn for next Friday so please continue to practise these the children are trying so hard and I'm incredibly proud!
Reception are doing really well with their reading books, so please ensure they are looking at these each night by discussing what is happening in the pictures. Please ensure you sign their reading records and bring the books to school each day. Reception have started their phase 2 phonics journey and have learned the sounds s, a, t, p, I, n, m and d. This week we will be looking at g, o, c and k.
They will also be continuing their story 'Owl babies' and starting to use their phonics sounds to help write words. In Maths the reception children will be counting actions or objects that cannot be moved, so we will be listening very carefully to how many claps we can hear or counting how many jumps our friends can do.
P.E is every Monday and Thursday so please ensure the children's PE kits are in school and we will send them home at half term to be washed!
Please ensure your child's book is in school every day and that you are continuing to read with them at home.
Please remember to bring a coat into school with your child as the weather is forever changing and it is always best to ensure they can stay warm and dry.
