Dear Parents,

We have had another fantastic and busy week in Year 1.

In Literacy, we are learning about Poetry. We had an amazing start to the week where teachers, students and even whole classes from both the Junior and Senior school came to Year 1 in the morning to read and perform poems for us. The children loved having exciting guests visiting them and they have thoroughly enjoyed listening to and joining in with a wide range of poems. They have particularly enjoyed learning about Michael Rosen’s poems this week.

In Maths, we have started learning about addition using the part, part, whole method. The children have been learning to use the correct vocabulary when describing a number sentence, to recognise the addition and equals signs and use them correctly to write a number sentence.

As part of our poetry focus this week, the children have enjoyed a range of activities in each class such as making rhyming word paper chains, writing their own poems and writing letters to characters from poems they have read.

On Friday, the whole school gathered to think about World Peace Day. Year 1 listened to Mr Seal’s speech and some lovely singing from the school choir. Thank you for your one hundred baht donation for charity and for sending your child to school wearing blue and white.

Thank you again for all of your continued support and have a lovely weekend.

The Year 1 team.
