We aim to keep this website updated with important and useful information for the Parent and Carers of Year 1 children, so please keep popping back to check times and dates when they appear.
YEAR 1 TEAM!
Mrs Donnelly (Mon-Wed) Mrs Phillips (Wed - Fri)
Take a look at our 'Who's Who?' page to find out a bit more about us!
Each class will have a P.E lesson each week.
These will be on the following days:
1G - Tuesday
1DP – Thursday
1V - Friday
Please ensure that your child has a named P.E. kit in school (white t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps). It is advisable that long hair is tied back and that earrings are not worn on your child’s P.E. days (children will have to wear tape over earrings if they have been left in on their P.E day).
Homework will be set on Education City. Your child has received individual login details (inside cover of their reading diary) to allow them to access the homework. The activities set will be relevant to the work your child is currently learning and we hope that they will enjoy the process of completing their homework online.
Spellings will be given out to the children every half term and will be checked on Fridays. Children will be taught different spelling patterns and rules closely linked to our Phonics lessons at school. Additionally, you can help your child to learn the 'common exception words.' These are the words the children are expected to read and spell correctly. You will find links to the common exception and high frequency words, together with spelling lists, in the section below (useful links).
Please hear your child read regularly throughout the week and comment in their reading diary. It is essential that books are sent into school on the following days to enable us to change each child's reading books every week. It is beneficial for your child to have their reading books available on additional days, as we have a volunteer reader in school every Wednesday and staff also hear children read throughout the week.
1V - Monday
1DP – Wednesday
1G - Thursday
As a school, we have invested in an on-line platform to provide access to Collins e-books. This portal has over 1000 books that can be used to help children secure the essential skills of early reading. Please find your child's login inside their reading diary.
