2019 - 2020
The Year 1 team would like to welcome you to the new academic year. We hope you've all had a lovely break and your child is ready to learn new and exciting things we have in store for them. We strive to make our learning environments interesting and exciting where we will develop a range of thinking skills through first hand experiences. We will provide a stimulating, challenging and friendly working environment where every child is valued.
The children will still experience play, as we feel it plays a crucial role in children’s learning in all areas especially helping get top grips with the National Curriculum. To enhance the children's learning we will be providing experiences which will include off-site trips.
If you have any questions about Year 1 please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 1 team.

All About Us
We're going on a Bear Hunt
We're going on a Bear Hunt Outcome
Today we had our Teddy's Bear Picnic where we shared our own stories using our home learning back drop and a teddy. We had a biscuit and a drink at the end.
We're going on a Bear Hunt
Today we followed a map through the woodland walk and found books about bears, class bears and characters from the story 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'.
Please could we have 4 named photos of your child as a baby, toddler, pre - school age, school age by Wednesday 11th September.
Please create a back-drop for a scene from the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' to use as part of the teddy bear's picnic. You can choose to make a snowstorm, a dark forest, long wavy grass or a deep dark cave. Please can we have these in school by Monday 21st October.
These are the expectations for reading, writing and maths in Year 1 for the end of Autumn term (Christmas)
Please speak to Miss Thompson or Miss Peckett if you have any questions.
We are introducing weekly homework which will be inside their new homework books. This was introduced to the Year 1 cohort last year and has been very successful in supporting learning in Maths and Literacy.
We will send home weekly homework in their homework book which will be sent out on Fridays. This will be a written activity or a label asking you to complete an activity on Spelling Frame with your signature as proof of completion. Your child’s Spelling Frame login details can be found at the front of this book and in the green reading record book. Please make sure you continue to read with your child 5 times a week and write in the reading record book. Please complete the homework and return by the following Friday.
Your child will receive a log in sticker inside their green reading record books. Each week your child's class teacher will assign spelling and words for your child to practise at home.
