Roald Dahl Day
Year 1 enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl Day in school, as a class we completed a timeline of his life and then everyone spent an afternoon creating a stamp of Willy Wonka.
Times Table Rock Stars
Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our launch of Times Tables Rock Star in school.
As part of Remembrance Day Year 1 made soldiers using wooden pegs.
Year one made bird feeders this week in Forest School. We can’t wait to go out and check if they have been eaten all up!
Phonics Screening Check
Please can we ask you to take two minutes of your time to watch the Read Write Inc. Phonics Screening Check video so you understand how phonics underpins your child’s reading. Click Here to watch the video.
Welcome to Year 1!
In Year 1 we build on the skills learnt in reception as we aim to become independent, inquisitive and resilient learners. We follow the school rules of being ready, respectful and safe in all aspects of our day at school. We have a fun and engaging curriculum which introduces children into the big wide world, which is linked closely to our food and outdoor learning offer.
If your emotions feel all mixed up or you often have feelings that make you feel bad, talk to a trusted adult – they can help you find the right support. If your worried childline is there to listen: https://www.childline.org.uk/
Every fortnight on a Monday we will upload a Homework presentation on this class page . The presentation will include:
- Spellings to learn which will be tested on Friday.
- Maths challenge.
- Reading at home to be completed at least three times a week.
Also included on the presentation, will be suggested activities to help your child learn their spellings and time stables as well as links to phonics instructional videos for parents.
Please support your child in completing these homework tasks as best as they can. Many thanks in advance for your support.
I am sure you will agree that reading is a vital life skill!
Please can we actively encourage you to read with your child at least three times a week at home. When you have read with your child, please can you make a note of the date, title of the book and make a comment about your child’s reading too. This will help the adults in school maintain a regular dialogue with you about your child’s reading.
