Year 1

Class 1 times are 8.50am – 3.15pm

PE takes place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure your children have their PE kit in school.

Reading

We use the ‘Letter and Sounds’ and phonics schemes and Collins Big Cat, Oxford Reading Tree and Pearson Bug Club reading schemes.

We will look at stories with familiar settings, non-fiction reports, diary writing, letters and poetry based on the senses.

Home learning is given out in the form of a grid of topic-related activities each half term. It is expected that the children will complete at least one activity a week and return evidence of this to school each Wednesday.

Expectations

It is hugely important that the children read aloud regularly at home. Children should be reading for approximately 10 minutes each evening. If they have completed their school reading book, please feel free to read other books with your child. It is important that they have the chance to read books that they are interested in e.g non-fiction, poetry and magazines as well. Children are encouraged to become more independent in Year 1 and may change their own reading books as soon as they have finished them. The children are reminded each day to change their book during morning snack time. We would be grateful if you could either comment or sign the reading record to let us know you have read with your child.
