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 daily at home. Children will also take part in reading session in school using separate books and flash cards games. Please ensure your child brings their reading book and book mark to school daily.

Spellings

Children will be given spellings on a Friday through Spelling Shed 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 Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit or tracksuit. Initially PE will be outside, weather permitting

Homework

Year one children are expected to complete daily reading and learn weekly spellings
