Newtown Community Primary School
'Newtown Primary School is a Community Primary School and we take the "Community" aspect of our title very seriously. Our children, their families and extended families are at the heart of everything we do.'

Sycamore Class (Year 1 & 2)

Welcome to Sycamore Class!

My name is Miss Huggett and I am teaching Sycamore class this year with the support of our lovely teaching assistants Miss McVeigh and Mrs Wiater.

 

In Sycamore class we work hard to ensure that we are always trying our best and work hard to face any challenges we are presented with. In Sycamore class we enjoy learning and we know how to work hard whilst still having fun!

 

Please help us in supporting your child at home with their reading daily. We will be continuing with our 100 club here at Newtown Primary School and it would be amazing to see many Year 1’s challenging themselves to reach this impressive milestone!

 

Key things to remember:

  • PE kit needs to be in school every day. 
  • Children are expected to read daily and record this in their reading logs
  • The children will have weekly spellings. We would appreciate your support with helping your child to practise their spellings each week.
     

Many exciting things ahead in Year 1! Please keep an eye on here to see the wonderful things we will be doing throughout the year.

Maths

You are learning your number bonds to 10 and number bonds to 20.

 

Over the next few days we are going to be recapping some of our learning from previous terms. Today, you are going to be recapping your number bonds to 10 and number bonds to 20.

 

Please click link 3 below to play hit the button.

 

Once on the game click number bonds- make 10 or make 20. 

Remember you can use your fingers or counters to support you with your counting forwards and backwards.

 

Remember to do careful counting. It is always good to double check each answer.
