Above you will see our topic overview. This shows what we will be covering in each subject over the first half of the Autumn term here in school. You may choose to do some extra work around the subjects mentioned to support your child at home.
We have also added a list of practical skills we will be working on in school and we would appreciate any support to practise these at home also.
Welcome to Year One!
This Year our class will be lead by Mr Coxon and Mrs McDonald with the support of Mr Hryniszak. If you wish to speak us please see a member of staff on the yard on a morning, down at the gate after school or alternatively our email addresses are at the bottom of this page. You will also find relevant information for each class as the year progresses including our topic webs and how you can help at home. You will be able to find these above at the start of each half term. There are a number of after school clubs being ran this year which will have sign up opportunities each half term.
We would like to remind you to put names in all of your children's clothes and they are allowed a water bottle in class, this should also have a name on. Below you will find PE and swimming information such as what your child needs for these sessions. It is important that they are prepared for these lessons as PE is statutory requirement for all children.
In Year 1 all children will be given homework books in which they can complete their homework as well as printed spellings each week. Homework will be marked every Wednesday and returned to the child Thursday with new tasks set that day to be handed in on the following Wednesday. Parents and carers are encouraged to discuss any errors with their child again any queries do not hesitate to contact us. As highlighted in the schools homework policy homework will last roughly 55 minutes per week, consisting of reading each night, phonics spelling and tricky word practice, times tables, a focused literacy (comprehension, grammar, punctuation and/or a longer piece of writing) and numeracy task.
