Welcome to Year One! (Yr 1/2AL follow this link)
In Year One we have Miss Kennedy (1AK), and Mrs Sadler & Mrs Howie(1SH) .
Mrs Schofield, Mrs Bates, Miss Gill and Miss Harris support the children as Teaching Assistants.
Year One classrooms are accessed via Entrance I and children will leave
Our first topic this year will be ‘This is me!’. Within this, we will explore about ourselves and others, including looking at the parts of the human body, our senses and how to keep ourselves healthy! We will also be exploring our local area and creating our own maps. Find out more about what we are studying this term by clicking here.
Outdoor Education sessions will be delivered by Mrs Hammond on alternate weeks for each class. Children need to ensure that they have a waterproof coat, warm clothing and wellies in school at all times as there may be opportunities to continue our outdoor learning at other times of the week.
Spellings and Grammar (SPaG)
Spellings are sent home in half-termly blocks and tests are every Friday. In Year one we also deliver specific grammar lessons in the aim that children then include this in their writing. Please click HERE to see what we cover throughout the year.
Reading Gems are specific targets that the children will focus on throughout the year. Click HERE to see Reading Gems coverage.
These need to be in school everyday as the children have quiet reading time each day, with the opportunity to also change their reading book. We also listen to groups of children read each day and usually put letters home in their book bags so it is a good idea to check them daily too!
We encourage the children to leave their P.E. kits in school all half term in case there are any changes in the timetable. This half-term, children in Year 1 will be focusing on Net and Wall games.
School Dinners and Snack
We encourage all children to have a water bottle in school every day so they can drink regularly. A snack of fresh fruit is available every morning break. Now, each day the children have the opportunity to buy a snack for 25p. Please bring money in in a named purse.
Autumn 2 Spellings- Test every Friday.
