Welcome to Class 1’s page


Welcome to Year 1!

We have been so impressed with how quickly the children have settled into Year 1 - they are already working so hard!

We have a busy half term planned - our main topic is 'All about Us' and we have already filled some of our display boards with self portraits and pictures of our family. In English we will be focusing on constructing a sentence - using spaces between our words and beginning to use basic punctuation. In science, we will be exploring our senses by tasting crisps, going on a sound walk, guessing the objects in a box, smelling different scents and looking carefully through a magnifying glass.   We will also be completing a lot of practical maths activities, exploring number bonds and grouping objects in different ways. There is a lot to look forward to!

Our P.E days are on Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor dance sessions). Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct P.E kit on these days. 

It has been lovely to see that so many of you are already listening to your child read and recording this in their reading record diary. As you are aware, reading is the key to learning and practising with your child each night - even if that is just a few pages - makes all the difference in the world.  In addition to this, we will listen to your child read as often as possible and change their reading book regularly. As your child's reading improves, we will move them through our coloured reading scheme. Each time this happens, we have a mini celebration in our class, which the children love! Homework books have been sent out - please practise the spellings each day ready for a spelling test on Friday. There is also a maths sheet to complete each week. 

Thank you for your support and keep an eye on this page - I will update the photographs regularly.
