Year 1

Mrs Robinson

Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome back after the Christmas holiday!

This term we will consolidate the learning from last half term and continue to work on developing our reading skills as well as writing clear sentences with a conjunction. In Maths we will continue to ensure that we can recall number facts at speed and are confident counting forwards and backwards from a given number. As was the case last term when I am not teaching the class Mrs Lord or Mrs Atkinson will teach.

PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that the children keep their kit in school and this will be sent home each half term. PE uniform should consists of a plain white polo shirt/t-shirt, black shorts, black leggings or plain black tracksuit bottoms,. Trainers/pumps and a red fleece/jumper/cardigan for outdoor PE.

Reading is the key to your child’s learning. The children will keep the same book for 3 days. Please read this book each night with your child and discuss what has happened in the story. As the children are reading the same book at home and school they should increase pace and fluency. Please sign the reading record each time you have read the book.

Important information

The National Phonics Screening Test for all Year 1 children will take place in June. Information about the screening check can be found using the link below.
