Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

 

Teacher - Mrs Spencer Burton

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Tudor

 

Our aim in Year 1 is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners. Please don’t hesitate to come and see me either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.

Picture 1 Our Class Saint Is Saint Joseph The Worker

St. Joseph,
watch over me
and care for me
just as you cared for
the child Jesus;
and by your help,
may I come to know
your Son,
and so grow
in strength
and wisdom
and the favour of God.
Amen.

Reading at home

 

Children will be given a set of books to take home to read each week. It is important that your child reads daily at home and they must be able to talk about what they have read. Please make a note of how your child found the book and any tricky words in the Reading Record. These notes can be brief!

 

Your child’s book changing day can be found on the front of this record.

 

 

Spellings

Spellings will be set on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. Children will need to practise these daily at home.

 

 

Maths Homework

 

Children will be set Maths homework every three weeks, beginning after the October half term. The homework will be interactive games that can be found on https://www.mymaths.co.uk/. Login details for this will be given at a later date and will be stuck into the front of your child's Reading Record. 

 

Phonics Screening Check

 

At the end of Year One in June, pupils sit a short Phonics Screening Check to assess their reading ability. More information on this can be found on the video link below.
