Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Staff in Year 1 are Mrs Schofield, Mrs Eggleton and Mrs McDonald.

 

Our whole school topic during Summer 1 is Animals and Environments.  Within this topic we will be exploring our local area by going for walks in the community and talking about what we see.  In Science we will be finding out about plants, identifying them and investigating what they need to grow.  We will also find out about offspring and how they can differ from parents.  In RE we will find out about why Shabbat is important to Jewish children. In art we will explore the painting Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh and create out own versions.  Maths will focus on numbers to 100, addition, subtraction and geometry.  In English we will continue our PWP with 2 stories, Bob the bubble who wanted to be useful and Jane Pippety.  We will explore the stories and rewrite our own versions. 

 

Homework

Our cross curricular homework grid is below.  This has also been shared with parents on FreeFlow and OneNote.  As well as this homework grid maths homework will be uploaded onto OneNote each Thursday into your child's folder in Summer 1 - Homework.  These can be completed on OneNote or on paper.  Your child will also be given a set of spellings each Monday which will also be uploaded onto OneNote to practise at home as well as in school.  A spelling quiz will happen each Friday morning.  Reading books are sent home daily and we encourage reading at home as much as possible.  

Homework

Independence

 

We are encouraging the children to become more independent and to look after their own belongings,  You can help your child to do this by putting their name in all of their clothing.  As the weather gets warmer please continue to send your child to school wearing clothing for the weather and a coat as the weather can change quickly.

Year 1 PE and Forest School

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 Forest School 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.

 

P.E is on a Thursday morning.

Please ensure you child has kit in school which include- Red t-shirt, black shorts and plimsoles. We do not have spare kit in school for the children to wear so if they do not have kit they will not be able to take part.

PE kits will be returned home at the end of each half term and should come back into school in time for the first PE session of the half term.

 

Forest School is on a Tuesday morning.

Please send your child to school with suitable clothing that you don't mind getting wet and muddy.  This should include sturdy shoes, boots or wellies, a warm coat, warm trousers and jumper.  

Children will need to bring school shoes whenever they wear wellies or other footwear to school.
