Welcome to the year 1 page. Here you will find all the information you need to support your child's learning. You will also find pictures in the "blog" sub-pages.
We look forward to getting to know you all over the course of the year.
Mrs Brierley, Mrs Lumb, Mr Hayward and Miss Newton.
Spring 2 Information
Our topic this half term is: ‘All Creatures Great and Small’. This involves learning about animals and dinosaurs but will also include Spring and Easter.
P.E and Games
P.E continues to be on Monday for Y1BL, Wednesday for Y1H and Thursday for Y1N. The children will need a white T shirt and blue shorts for this lesson.
Mr Lewis will continue to teach games skills on Tuesday afternoons. Please can the girls have an extra pair of socks if they wear tights.
In reading, please continue to discuss the story to ensure understanding. Please also identify capital letters full stops and question marks. We are also sending out a sharing book for bedtime reading or for your child to read independently.
Spellings are still tested on Tuesdays and given out on Wednesdays. Your child will be tested with the National Phonics Check in June. You have been given a reading sheet containing ‘alien’ words (nonsense words) which is part of the reading homework. Your child should use their phonic knowledge to segment and blend these words. Extra sounds may be given for some children.
MyMaths homework will continue to be sent home on Tuesdays.
Numbots also seems to be a popular addition to our maths homework.
An optional learning log has been given to your child. This can be returned to school any day before the Easter holiday.
