Welcome to the Year 1 page. We hope you will enjoy looking through photographs of our work and trips as the year progresses! We will be covering a variety of topics that will cross over into the core areas of the curriculum, so keep visiting our page!
There will be numerous exciting opportunities for the children, with a slight change in focus with our curriculum which we are hoping they will find both rewarding and engaging. Homework is something that we will be looking to send out weekly. The children will have their own homework book with activities and guidance stuck in - this could be spellings, Literacy and/or Numeracy tasks. The homework books will be given out on a Friday with the expectation of them being handed back in by Wednesday the following week. Naturally, if you are not sure about what is needed please do not hesitate to ask. We would be extremely grateful if you could listen to your child read regularly and fill in their reading record this really helps both Mrs Barker and I, it is also an effective method of communication too!
The children will have two sessions of PE during the week, one indoors and the other outside (weather permitting). Please can you make sure that they have appropriate clothing (a white top and green shorts and tracksuit top and bottoms) and footwear (plimsolls for indoors and trainers for outside). Also, it is a legal requirement that earrings are removed, taping them up is not allowed. Therefore, I would be extremely grateful if you could remove these on the day as we are not allowed to do so. Year 1’s PE days are on Monday and Tuesday.
Finally, Friday mornings at 9am we will have a school celebration assembly this provides the ideal opportunity to show off the children’s talents and achievements over the last week. You will be invited in, if your child is receiving a Teacher’s certificate. You will be contacted by the school to warn you in advance!
We are really looking forward to the year ahead, remember to visit the Kid’s Zone on the school website, there are some wonderful interactive games which you can enjoy doing together to support your child with their learning!
