Miss Vickers Class 6

Hello, I am Miss Vickers and am loving being part of the team at Woodlands Primary School. I first began teaching in the UK where I have taught in both large city and small village schools. I moved to Dubai for five years where I was Head of Year One and Year One class teacher. Whilst living in Dubai, I did some traveling and took the opportunity to visit places such as Asia, Australia and Japan. Outside of school, I like to go to the gym and swimming. I enjoy spending time with my family, country walks as well as trips to the cinema and eating out.

Spring Term Year 1!

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela

Welcome back to school children and parents! 

During this half term term we will be introducing a new topic called 'Houses and Homes'. We will be designinga and creating 'houses' for characters from traditional stories to live in. 

In Literacy we will be using the storybook Goldilocks and Just the One Bear as our hook for writing.

We will continue to use Talk 4 Writing strategies to learn the story, performing with actions and words to retell the story. The children will then innovate and create their own exciting stories. The children will also research all about bears and they will then write a fact file showcasing all the things they learnt about bears. Throughout all of their writing the children will be consolidating the accurate use of capital letters and full stops and how to use 'and' to join two sentences together.  

During the Spring term, we will continue to teach Read Write Inc. to continue to develop the children’s reading skills as they learn their sounds, segmenting and blending whilst also developing their comprehension skills. If you would like to help your child to practise their phonic knowledge for reading at home, then follow the link www.ruthmiskin.com for more information.

 

This term in maths we will be continuing to work with the children to develop and deepen their understanding of numbers around us. We will learn about numbers through exploration and fun, interactive and collaborative activities. we will focus on numbers within 50 when we work on place value and we will also be learning how to add and subtract using a numberline. We will also be looking at measurement - using rulers to measure length and balance scales to measure weight of objects.

There are such a variety of useful resources on the internet for teaching counting, shapes and measure – all disguised as games! Here are some further links if you would like to help your child to practise at home...
