Welcome to Year 1

Our new topic is:

"Memories"

Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or a favourite book? Look back at family photos of special occasions, perhaps holiday snapshots or a birthday or two. Remember a wedding or a christening and find a funny photo of your parents when they were young. Learn how to write a diary of days gone by and find out about the days before you were born: it’s called history and it’s all about the past.

Memories are special. Let’s make some more!

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please contact the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you. Remember short messages can be passed on to the staff who are on the door each morning.

In Year 1 reading at home  is vitally important for the children. 

We expect the children to read out loud to an adult at least 5 times a week at home. Please sign or initial in the homework diary to confirm that this has been completed. Please remember that you have access to a wealth of Bug Club books to support this.

Choose 5-10 spellings from the list in the homework diary to practise each week.   Should you require further words please speak to your child's class teacher.

Maths passports (Stage 1) are located in the homework diary-please practise a couple of  the skills each week.

 Children should have their homework folders in school every day. Homework diaries will be checked in school on Fridays.

 We love to see Year 1 children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

Please remember that children can wear boots to school but need shoes to change into.

All children need to bring a water bottle to class every day, which they can refill at regular intervals in order to keep themselves well hydrated.  Please could you make sure that water bottles are labelled clearly with your child's full name.

Please remember to use Purple Mash at home to support your child's learning. Tasks will be set by teachers when appropriate to reinforce learning.  General activities can be accessed at any point.

 

Remember that as the weather gets chillier to ensure that children have appropriate clothing to work, and play outside.
