Use this site to equip yourself with some positive ways to manage and support your children when using technology.

Sharing with your children ways to use technology safely is the key to happy and safe experiences when online.
 
Welcome to the Year 1 class page for Octopus class (Miss Williams), Otter class (Miss Kirby) and Owl class (Mrs Taylor & Mrs Perry).
 
 Term 6.
 
Welcome back! We are in our final term for Y1. 
This Term the children will engage in lots of exciting activities in and out of the school such as Sports Day, St Barnabas Day,  Heritage Day, Spirited Arts Day, the Summer Fayre, a trip to Ashton Court, class cooking, the summer disco and lots lots more!
 
In class we will be exploring the Solar system and in particular the Moon and People in Space. The children will focus on plants and living things in Science and in English the children will be expanding their descriptive writing through the text Traction Man. Later in the term they will start to take part in Guided Reading sessions once the phonic check is complete.
 
Thank you once again for your continued support of your child's learning and development, both in and out of school. 
 
 
PE kits
This is a friendly reminder to double check that your child has a (named) PE kit in school. It should include:
A top, shorts and pumps/daps ready for any sunny days when PE can take place outside. All items to be named to avoid confusion at changing times.
 
 
Please ensure you check the letter regarding preparation for the trip in Week 5.
Thank you for your assistance and to those that are able to come along. If you have any further questions, or wish to offer your help please speak with your child’s class teacher.

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.

 

We would love to see as many of you as possible at our weekly reading morning! These are from 8.50-9.10 every Wednesday. You will be able to read your child's school book with them and record it in their reading diary. 

 

 
  
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 until Term 5&6.

P.E. in Owl Class is on Mondays and Wednesdays.

P.E. in Otter Class is Tuesdays and Thursdays.

P.E. in Octopus Class is Tuesdays and Thursday.

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!
