Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

 

In Year 1 the team is Miss Piercey, Miss Roe,  Mrs Bamber, Miss Elston and Miss Bartlett.

 

 

 

Our term 4 topic is ... 

NSEW- Where in the world are we?

 

 

 

Key Information 

 

This term Miss Piercey and Miss Roe will have their PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) for one half day a week every Wednesday morning. 

 

Children in Key Stage 1 have a piece of fruit/vegetable every day at morning break. Children also have the option of having a carton of milk which needs to be paid for. If you would like your child to have milk, please see the school office.

 

Please send your child to school with a water bottle. We find that lots of our Year 1s have growing spurts and get extra hungry! If your child would prefer fruit/vegetable from home as a snack, then they may also bring that to school.

 

PE

Our P.E days this year will be Wednesdays and Thursdays.

 

Outdoor learning 

Our year one outdoor learning day is Wednesday, please can children bring waterproof clothing and wellies. Unfortunately, we are unable to store wellies and waterproofs at school. 

 

Reading

 

The children’s reading books are changed on a Tuesday and Friday. We ask the children to put their book reading record in the box on the carpet if it needs to be changed. In line with school policy, we expect children to read at least 5 times per week, reading their School book 3 times before changing. Please record this in their reading record diary. If you want your child's book to be changed please also write ‘finished’ in the comments section.

 

 

At the front and back of the children’s reading records there is a list of keywords. These are excellent lists to practise reading at home so that your child can recognise these common words instantly by sight. Once your child can confidently read them, it is then a fantastic list of words that you might like to practise spelling with your child too. 

Timetable

Term 2 - How do people celebrate around the world?

Term 6- What is so wonderful about wildlife?

Thank you to all of the parents who attended our phonics morning.

 

For those who were unable to make it, we have attached a copy of the slides below and if you are able to pop in to grab your child's phonic pack after school on a day that best suits you.

 

Thank you so much :)
