Year 1 2021 - 2022

Autumn Term 2021

Welcome to Year 1!

We have had a fabulous start to Autumn Term in Year One with all of the children settling in beautifully and already working very hard!

Our classroom is really taking shape and we have some beautiful self portraits displayed already to welcome everyone to our learning space.The children have also been extremely creative,  making some fabulous junk model houses to contribute to our Houses and Homes display in class.  All of the children are adapting quickly and confidently to life in Year One and they are already showing what a good attitude to learning they all have! Well done children!

We are currently assessing all of the children in Phonics. Once all assessments are completed we will be giving out weekly spellings based around the children's learning in Phonics each week. Words will be sent out on a Monday to learn for a Friday.

Homework will also be starting in the next few weeks. Homework tasks will be sent home on a Wednesday to be returned the following Wednesday. Tasks may be linked to English, Maths or Topic work.

PE sessions will be every Tuesday and Thursday with Mrs Hall. Please make sure children have full PE kit in school and that all items are clearly named. We will be outside as much as possible for PE so please ensure children have a sweatshirt/jumper and tracksuit/jogging bottoms or leggings to wear outside if it is cooler and some comfortable trainers for outdoor use. 

All children now have a reading book and we will carry out book changes on a Tuesday and Friday each week. Please remember to write in your child's reading record if you've heard them read so we know if there's anything we need to follow up on and to celebrate their progress! We love reading in Year One and will be developing our exciting new reading area in class over the next few weeks too!

We are sure we will have a busy, exciting and fun-filled term and are looking forward to getting to know your children as they progress through their first term in Year One - already we can see they are going to be complete and utter superstars! 

Here's to a fantastic term for us all!  laugh

Kind regards,

The Year One Team: Mrs Gaulton, Mrs Hall and Mr Nixon
