Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

The Year 1 teacher is Miss Jones. Miss Thomson is the Teaching Assistant and Mrs Simpkinson is the INA.

PE is on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Turner so please make sure your child has their PE kit. On Friday morning Mrs Chamberlain teaches the class.

Please remember to let us know if anyone different is picking up your child from school.

Helping your child learn at home

We can really notice the difference in progress when children continue their learning at home.

Little and often is best. For example, 10 minutes of Mathletics and 10 minutes of reading. Please do this on as many days as you can. Children who practise 5 days of 7 will be well on their way to being the most fluent readers and mathematicians in the class!

Starting in Term 2, we will send out homework each Friday. This includes Year 1 statutory spellings to practise and some maths challenges based on our learning that week.

For additional phonics and reading practise it is great to look at words in isolation through using flashcards or playing online games on Phonics Play. If you need any help, please come and see me.

Miss Jones
