Year 1

 
Welcome to the Year 1 class page for Octopus class (Miss White), Otter class (Mrs Hunt) and Owl class (Mrs Taylor & Mrs Perry)

 

Please check out all the wonderful work posted on the blog. All photos of children working and trips will be published on our blog page. Please visit and comment, you will find the login for the blog on your child’s homework sheet.

  

 Reading - all children are expected to read at home at least three times per week. It is essential that you continue reading with your child to not only check their reading accuracy, but also that they have fully understood the story through discussion.

 

Key words will be sent home this term, please practise reading them as often as possible, as they will be checked weekly. New keywords will be sent home once your child can read their given words by sight.

 

Reading mornings will be on Wednesday from 8.50 to 9.10 and we look forward to welcoming you into your child's class for this enjoyable activity.  
 
 
We are always looking for parent/carers to come into year 1 to listen to children read. If you can spare an hour or two weekly please let your child's teacher know.
 

P.E bags are needed in school  daps are not required. P.E. in Owl Class is on Mondays and Wednesdays. P.E. in Otter Class is Tuesdays and Thursdays and P.E. in Octopus Class is Tuesdays and Wednesdays. There are a few children who struggle to undress and re-dress themselves and we urge you to let your children dress themselves at home. Tights are a real struggle and on P.E. days socks might be an easier option!

The weather is becoming very unpredictable and so a coat or rain mac is needed daily as is your child’s book-bag and a bottle of water.
