Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.

In Year 1 your children have been placed in either blue class (Miss Woodrow) or the yellow class (Mrs Shine).

This term we will be learning about superheroes and seasons. In English they will be recapping on phonics learnt in Reception as well as learning new sounds, learning how to use capital letters and full stops to form sentences, correct handwriting formation, and beginning to develop independence in sentence construction. In Maths they will be practising numbers to 20, one more and one less, 2d and 3d shapes and measuring. In RE we will be looking at our families and Advent.

Every week your child will read to an adult. This will be in an individual session or in a group guided session with a teacher. Please ensure you read with your child each day and practice any tricky words that are sent home. Your child should have a new dinosaur diary, we would love it if you could write in this each time you read with your child.

There are two PE sessions for classes each week. PE will be on Monday and Thursday for Year 1 Yellow and on Thursday and Friday for Year 1 Blue. Please ensure your child has the correct kit, all labelled, including plimsolls. On Monday mornings, the children are lucky enough to be receiving music lessons from Miss Amey who works with many schools in the local area teaching music.
