Welcome to Year 1 – we are so excited for the year ahead and to welcome all of the children into our classrooms. We use Marvellous Me to contact parents during the school day, however if you need to contact us in the mean time please use our class emails and we will contact you back as soon as we can – email@example.com
We are READERS!
Phonics is very important in Year 1 as children will take the Phonics Screening Check in the Summer Term. To support our teaching of phonics we encourage children to read at least 3x a week at home, alongside the word cards we send home with our school reading books. These are linked directly with the phonemes the children have been learning that week.
We are WRITERS!
In Autumn 1 we focused on writing simple sentences and began practicing and remembering to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.
Our theme was ‘Beside the Seaside’ and our key text was ‘Billy’s Bucket’ by Kes Gray.
The children came up with some fantastic ideas, creating their own version of Billy's Bucket and making jam sandwiches to have their own seaside picnic.
