In Year 1 we always try to be honest, friendly and well-behaved, which helps us to learn to the best of
In Literacy we love learning from story books. We will be retelling stories, writing our own stories, and developing our writing skills. We will do a phonics session every day to help us with our spelling and reading.
In Maths we will be learning many things, including how to add, subtract, count on using numbers to 100 and beyond, tell the time, find the different values of coins, shape, measure and much more.
In Year 1 we have P.E. on Monday. Children do need correct kit: black shorts/joggers, white t-shirt and plimsolls/trainers. Earrings should be removed (unless very recently pierced). PE kits should be kept in a drawstring bag (not a rucksack) as these are stored easier on the children's pegs. (**During Covid pandemic, children need to come to school wearing PE kits on a Monday).
It is helpful if book bags are brought to school every day as children often have letters to bring home and although books are usually changed once a week, children may also be heard to read during other times of the week.
Homework is given out at the start of each half term as a grid where children can choose one activity per week to complete. Homework books need to be in on a Tuesday to be marked. In addition to their weekly homework activity, children must read at home as much as possible throughout the week and practice their spellings.
We use the Class Dojo website/app to reward children with 'dojos' for good learning and behavior. We also use the site to share photos and information with parents. If you haven't already got a login for Class Dojo please see one of the Year 1 teachers and we will get you set up!
