Year 1

Welcome to year 1's page!



Hello and welcome to year 1's page!

Here you will find lots of photo's to show you what exciting things we have been up to and a bit of information about our weekly routines to help with what your child will need.

Hope you enjoy!


Year 1's weekly routines



Your child's spellings are based on their phonics phase and will usually have a common spelling pattern. A good way to practise is to LOOK at the word, COVER and write the word and CHECK. They will be tested on a Wednesday afternoon and are usually given their new spellings the same day.



It would be great if you could make sure your child always has their P.E kits in school! (White t.shirt, white P.E shorts and plimsolls)


Reading Books

Your child should always have a reading book in their bag. It would be great if you could read with your child little and often! We aim to change their books about once a week, so your reading at home is much appreciated! Any questioning of child's understanding of what they have read, what they think might happen or how a character feels show how much your child has understood what they have read.



Homework is given out every other Friday. Your child can choose from a selection of short fun tasks which will link to what they have been learning about in class.


If you have any other questions, please feel free to speak to me before of after school!  :-)
