Welcome to Year 1!

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 Tiger Who Came To Tea' as well as our topic learning on our local area. I am so impressed with the way the children have settled into Key Stage 1 and I am looking forward to the exciting learning we have coming up this term!

 

We began our computing lessons this week - the children loved using the laptops and behaved so responsibly with the equipment. Well done Year 1!

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.

Homework

Reading

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.

 

Homework is sent out on a Monday and should be returned on a Friday each week. 

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! 

 

 

Sports

Each week we have 2 PE lessons and these will take place on a Thursday afternoon and swimming on a Wednesday.

Please make sure your child has their named PE kit in school every day.
