Notice Board
19th June

First of all we would like to say a really big thank you to those of you who were able to join us for Sports Day last week. We really appreciate you coming and we’re sure you will agree that the children were fantastic!

We are looking forward to having our class photos taken on Monday of this week. We will all be making a special effort to look our smartest on that day!

In English this week the children will begin to change the journey story that they have been learning, ‘Meerkat Mail’. They will generate their own ideas for the route that Sunny takes on his journey, and will write their own version of the story by the end of the week.

This week in Maths we will practise solving simple calculations mentally. We will be focusing on doubling numbers and mentally adding and subtracting one and two-digit numbers. The children will have lots of opportunities to practise using their knowledge of number bonds to help them.

Please support your child to practise this at home.

Thank you for your support.

The Year 1 Team

Click here to view the presentation from the Parent Meeting about Year 2 assessment.  We have also included the Year 1 and 2 common exception words, a grammar glossary and the teacher assessment framework for Year 2 which outlines the end of year expectations.

We would like to welcome the children to an exciting Year 1. Mrs Lowe, Mrs Gilbert and Mrs Graham will be supporting Miss Bebbington in Sky Class and Miss Carr and Mrs Gordon in Ocean class. Details of our learning this term can be found by following the link below. 

We will be doing PE on Monday and Wednesday each week. This will take place in all weathers, so please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit and well-fitting footwear for this.

Special bag/show and tell will take place on a Friday. Please click on the link to view the rotas for this.

It is our intention to try and change the children’s reading books three times a week. This will be on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We rely on the kindness of our parent helpers to do this job, so we would be grateful of your understanding if occasionally this does not happen.

Year 1 Homework

Spelling and Maths homework will be issued after October half term. In the meanwhile, please read with your child at least three times a week. It is important that you sign in your child’s reading record every time you hear them read, in order for the books to be changed.
