Year 1

 

Welcome to Year 1. 

Please follow our school Facebook page to see any photographs of your child's learning

 

This year, in year 1, the teachers will be Miss Cooper and Miss McAllister . We will also have Miss Muckles and Mrs Warren working with us.

  • P.E will be on a Tuesday morning. Children should have their full P.E. kit in school: blue t-shirt, blue shorts, trainers or plimsolls. To avoid items of clothing getting lost or swapped with another child's, please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled.
  • Homework will be given out on a Friday. Children will bring home one piece of Maths work and one piece of English work. This should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Children will also bring home a set of spellings each week. Spelling tests will be on Friday morning. We encourage children to practice the spellings each night.
  • This term, we will be looking at animals including humans in Science, the weather in geography and Christianity in R.E. 
  • Our phonics phase this term will be Phase 3.

Reading

In Year 1, children will take home their home-reading books. We ask that children read at least a few pages each night. Reading diary's must be signed to say the child has read. Children should bring their home-reading book back to school each day. Home- reading books which are returned to school will be changed and a new book will be given. If you feel your child has struggled with the book which they have brought home, we encourage you to keep this book another day and revisit the text before returning the book back to school. We want to promote a love of reading and strongly encourage children to also read their own books. Further to this, each year 1 class will have a class novel, which we try to share with the children whenever possible.
