Our teachers are Mrs Barr and Mrs Kay. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Salt.


Welcome to Year 1 we are very excited to start our new curriculum. Check out our Long term Matrix to see what exciting things we will be learning about this year.

 

 

 

 

 

Reading

Reading is a very high priority in Year 1 and children will be expected to read regularly at home. Children will also take part in reading session in school using separate books and flash cards games.
Please return both books on a Thursday.

Spellings

Children will be given spellings on a Friday and taught spelling rules and patterns throughout the week. We ask that children practise their given spellings over the week, ready to be tested on the next Friday.

PE 

PE takes place on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit or tracksuit on to come to school. Initially PE will be outside.

Homework
Every day at school children have a phonics session. After half term we will be sending out phonics homework to prepare for the phonics screening test in June 2020.

MME
We use Marvellous Me to keep you up to date with your Childs special awards and class news. The office will email you newsletters and forms to keep you up to date.

Seesaw app
This app will be used to send out homework, spellings, home learning and remote learning if needed.

Proud cloud
Each week we put a target on the cloud and the aim is to get everyone’s names up on the cloud by the end of the week. We also have weekly certificates for the Star of the week and the Writer of the week.

Fun websites
Check out Snappy maths, Top marks or Play phonics for interactive educational games.
