Welcome to Year 1
We hope you are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead, filled with exciting learning and fun. We are looking forward to getting to you know you all and helping you with your learning.
You should be reading every day (if possible), little and often really is the best option with 5-10 minutes every day being a great starting point. Research into learning shows that the more that you develop your comprehension skills and understanding of vocabulary the better you will do in school across the whole of the curriculum. School reading days will be every Tuesday and Thursday.
Homework will be set every few weeks, at the start of each new unit. It will be provided on a home learning grid similar to the ones used during lock down. These will be stuck in the children’s homework books and uploaded onto SEESAW and the school website. It will consist of a variety of tasks across the curriculum and will include compulsory and optional tasks. Some tasks can be completed in the homework books whilst other completed work may be photographed and put on SEESAW. Please help us by encouraging your children to complete their homework. The first learning grid will be set on Monday 28th September but reading books, spelling and Learn It sheets will come home before that.
Spellings will take place every Wednesday, so please make sure they have their spelling book in school on that day. Each child will have a different set of spellings linking to their Phonic Phase to support their learning in class.
P.E days will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. No children should bring a PE kit to school. Please wear appropriate P.E kit to school on those days. Prepare for these sessions to be outdoors unless weather does not allow for this.
We are all here to help you with any questions or problems you may have so please do not hesitate to ask. We realise that it has been a strange several months for everybody and your happiness at school is very important to all of us.
Miss Galloway, Mrs Luscombe and Mrs Hodge
Year 1 Knowledge Organisers
The Year 1 knowledge organisers are to share your child's curriculum journey whilst in KS1.
At the start of each unit we will talk through the knowledge organiser, asking the children what information has sparked their interest, and if they have any questions.
Therefore, please view them to see what your child will be learning each term and what new skills they will be developing.
