Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

 

Teachers - Miss Comer & Mrs Askill

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 us either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.

Our Class Saints are the Holy Family.

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 and discuss words that may be unfamiliar to them. As the children develop in confidence they should begin to use expression. 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 their reading record.

 

If your child does not have their reading book at home, Oxford Owl provide free eBooks. Click the link below to access the books:

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.

Is it a liquid or a solid? Our gloop acts like both! A messy end to Science Week.

Look at our fantastic football skills! Thank you Kidderminster Harriers for a superb session. Y1 had such fun and learnt so much!

Another Science Experiment! Coke and Mentos- the children put mentos in diet coke and coca cola and compared what happened.

Science week! Walking rainbow water, beating gravity with amazing air pressure and exploring surface tension by making a paper clip float on water!

Making Gruffalo Crumble with different materials. This then led us to write instructions on how to make Gruffalo Crumble in our writing books!

Making The Three Little Pigs Stew. The children worked together to chop the vegetables and we enjoyed tasting the stew too!

Literacy- Building houses with straw, sticks and bricks for The Three Little Pigs.
