Welcome to Year 1 2017 - 2018

Welcome to Year 1!

We have an exciting year planned.

P.E. lessons will be on Monday and Thursday 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 Tuesday and will need to be learned for a test the following Tuesday.  

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.


Kind regards, 

Miss Drayton, Mr. Eaton and Miss O'Keeffe
