Year 1 Class Information
Please click here to access the Year 1 Work Page where we will be posting work for children who are self-isolating due to coronavirus. It is important that children continue their education even if they are not in school.
Please click on the file below to see what we will be learning this term.
Individual Targets – All children will be given curriculum targets for reading, writing and mathematics.
Reading – It is expected that the children bring their reading book into school on a daily basis along with their reading record books. These books should be brought into the classroom when they come to school in the morning and taken home daily. it is extremely important that our children are reading both at home and in school on a daily basis. Please make sure that either yourself or your child/children also fill in the reading record book.
Spellings – In Year 1 and 2 we have a set of words that are important for us to be able to spell. Please click on the link below to see what they are and practise these words at home with your child.
Homework – Homework will be given out on Friday and expected in anytime up until the following Wednesday. The homework that the children receive is to reinforce/consolidate the work already covered in class. Each week your child will receive either a piece of English or Maths work to complete along with their spellings. They will also have a ‘homework grid’. The grid is based on work they will be doing over the half term and has nine tasks on. Your child can choose one task each week to complete, so not all tasks have to be done. There are points available for each task, the points they collect will go towards their colour team’s total at the end of the half term, so the more complex task they choose the more points they will earn and they can become a ‘Homework Hero!’ Homework grids will be glued into your child’s homework book and are available to view below.
Parent Consultations – We offer an opportunity for parents to discuss pupil progress with their class teacher twice a year. Letters are sent home during the Autumn and Spring Terms which allow parents to indicate a preferred appointment time and date.
PE Bags/Days – PE days in Year 1 are Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure pupils bring their PE bags to school at the beginning of each half term and leave it in school and that they include both outdoor and indoor PE kits, which they will then bring home every half term. *Please note: on PE days earrings must be removed for health and safety reasons. If for any reason your child is unable to take part in PE activities, please send a note to the class teacher.
Uniform – Please could you ensure that all items of uniform are clearly labelled. Any pieces of uniform that are found unnamed will be placed in the Key Stage 1 lost property box.
Water Bottles – The children should each bring in a water bottle to school. This should be cleaned and filled at home and taken home each day. Please ensure it is clearly named.
Newsletter – You should receive a weekly newsletter every Friday. Hard copies of our newsletter are sent home each week , emailed and also available to download from the School News section of the website.
