Welcome to Year 1!
Our teacher is Mrs Watts
Our TAs are Mrs Cawley and Mrs Hampton .
We pride ourselves on our positive attitudes to learning, perseverance and teamwork. The children are developing these skills all the time and we ask parents to please encourage the same attitude when completing homework activities at home.
Here you will find all the latest information about our learning and achievements as well as being able to see photographs of the children and their work.
Year 1 have been working hard and are really enjoying our focus text 'The Day the Crayons Quit' as well as our topic learning on The Great Fire of London.
The children took part in their first Year 1 assembly and did a fantastic job of retelling the story of the Great Fire.
Rehearsals for the Christmas performances are well under way and there is much excitement at being back on stage!
Long Term Plan- 2 year plan
Please find the long term plan for Year 1 attached below. There is lots of exciting learning ahead.
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 that children will receive two new reading books weekly.
To make the reading experience really valuable, please ask questions about the text and re-read it too. We also encourage looking at books in the library or at home.
Spelling and Maths homework
Homework is sent out on a Monday and should be returned on a Friday each week.
Each week we have 2 PE lessons and these will take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
Please make sure your child has their named PE kit in school every day.
