Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Our year group is split into 3 classes:

  • 1 Kusama - Miss Williams and Miss Vigo
  • 1 Goldsworthy - Miss McDonnell and Miss Masson
  • 1 Ringgold - Miss Tulley, Miss Crocker and Miss Heycock

We are also fortunate enough to be supported by other HLTAs within the school who help us with additional reading, writing and maths interventions.

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

Year 1 Explore the Swale.

The Year 1 children enjoyed exploring around the swale last week.

It was lovely to be able to walk all the way around now that it has been tidied and cleared up.  Thanks to the volunteers for making it safe for us!

The children were able to observe the seasonal changes and spot some birds, grasshoppers and newts.

We are looking forward to visiting the swale again as the weather changes.

Helping at Home

 Uniform and PE Kits

Please ensure your child has the correct uniform for school and that all parts fit and are clearly labelled. Current PE days are Tuesday’s and Friday’s, however children should have their indoor and warm outdoor PE kit in school at all times.

 Home Learning and Reading

In year 1, children are asked to be read with at least three times a week. Ideally this would be their reading book but we encourage other books to be read too. Please ensure your child reads their books more than once to help with fluency. Books are changed once a week by the teacher, however there is a book changing box within the classroom, where books can be changed more frequently. In addition to this, they will also have challenge words to read and once they reach set 5, they will start to be sent home spellings. They will be tested on their spellings once a week. Challenge words will be checked fortnightly.

Current Library Sessions (subject to change):

 -       1 Goldsworthy: Wednesday pm

-       1 Kandinsky: Thursday pm

-       1 Miro: Friday pm

For homework this year, we would like to begin our ‘Wizard Challenge Books’. These will be sent out on a Thursday and should be handed in the following Tuesday. This will enable you to ask any questions or queries you may have on the Friday before the weekend.  We will set one piece of work based on learning that has taken place that week in either maths, English or theme.  This should be able to be completed by the child independently but may require a little support from you.

 Important Dates

 ·       Trip to the Church: Wednesday 31 October.

 ·       Christingle Production: Thursday 29 November 2pm

 ·       1 Kandinsky’s Class Assembly: Friday 8 February

 ·       1 Miro’s Class Assembly: Friday 10 May.

 ·       1 Goldsworthy’s Class Assembly: Friday 14 June.
