Positive attitude = Positive results
We really encourage all of our Year 1 learners to have a positive attitude towards every task that they are faced with. We have been so happy to hear 'Yay!" and "Yes!" when faced with new challenges. Any challenge is more manageable when matched with a good attitude. We ask parents to please encourage the same attitude when completing homework activities at home.
We also believe in the power to choose and making good choices. If you scroll up you will see Danny our superhero, he will tell you how you can become a superhero by having the power to choose.
Please hear your child read every night and sign in their reading records. Reading plays such an important role in your child’s learning and is needed in every aspect of their learning. Please note reading books will be changed on a Monday and Friday. This will be moved up to three times a week after half term. We encourage that you ask questions about the text and re-read it too. We also encourage looking at books in the library or at home.
Long Term Plan
Please find the long term plan for Year 1 attached below. There is lots of exciting learning ahead.
You will also find (below) the books that we will be reading this year in English! There is a list of 50 books that your child can read and you can find these books in book stores or a library!
Each week we have 2 PE lessons and these will take place on a Monday afternoon and on Tuesday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school.
In History we will be looking at Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We will be looking at hospitals and medicines from the past.
We will also have an exciting workshop where we can put our learning into action with some role play.
Mathletics: once a week
