Welcome to Year 1!
We are looking forward to a very exciting and productive year.
P.E. lessons will be on Tuesday every week. Please make sure your child has a P.E. kit in school that includes a house colour t-shirt, black or navy leggings/shorts, or tracksuit bottoms for the winter, and pumps/trainers (trainers are preferred).
Spellings will be given out on Friday and will need to be learned for a test the following Friday.
Homework will be given out in their Learning Log on a Friday and should be handed in by the following Wednesday, so that it can be marked.
The children will also be given a 'home reader'. This is a book that matches their developing phonic knowledge. Your child should be able to use their decoding strategies e.g. sounding out and blending to read this book to an adult. This book can be changed every few days in the classroom.
Every week the children will get the chance to visit the Library as part of our Guided Reading timetable. At this time, your child can choose a book to take home that they can share with an adult. This book can be changed as often as you would like.
If you having any questions, please don't hesitate to ask any of the Year 1 team.

Our aim is to ensure that the children have a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on.
Year 1 visit to Church
Thank you to Reverend Julian for welcoming us to church to learn about Baptism and how a baby is welcomed into the Christian community. We learnt about the font and how it is used as part of a Baptism service. It really brought learning to life and we really enjoyed our visit.
