  Y1 Parents' Early Reading/Phonics meeting


To support your child with their reading development and to help you understand how we teach phonics, we will be running a parents’ early reading and phonics information evening on Thursday 31st January, 2.30 to 3.00 in the school hall.


During this session we will talk about how to say the letter sounds, how phonics is taught and how phonic knowledge is used in reading along with other ideas to help you support your child.

In science we identified and named a variety of everyday materials. We described the physical properties of the materials in order to compare and group them. We recorded our results in a table as a group and discussed what we found.


Did you know that opaque means ‘You can’t see through it (it lets no light)?


Did you know that transparent  means ‘You can see through it because it lets light through?


Did you know that translucent means ‘You can see light through it but you can only see a little bit  ( not detailed shapes)?


Did you know that materials can be made of glass, fabric, wood, metal and rubber?                                                


Did you know that plastic is a good material for an umbrella because it is doesn’t get rain on you. It is waterproof?

We did an investigatin to find out what material would make the best waterproof umbrella for Ted.  We tested cotton wool, paper, plasic and fabric.  We wanted to know which material would keep Ted dry.

We had great fun and  found out that  plastic would be the best material because it kept Ted dry and  did not let any water through.

Easter Sunday is our most joyful holiday.  It is a time  for joy because of what God has done for us all. We made Easter promises to change and make ourselves be the best we can be. We also made a prayer garden, a place to be calm, thoughtful and prayerful.  We wish you all a peaceful and loving Easter.
