Year 1 Information

Welcome to Year 1 with Mrs Durnford and Ms Wootton.

We will be learning about the weather near and far, our local area, toys in the past and lots of other exciting topic!
Things to Remember
Water bottles should be brought to school daily. We have drinking water in the classroom so water bottles can be refilled when needed.
Our PE days will be every Tuesday and Friday. The children will need to bring into school at the start of each half term their full PE kit: black joggers, black jacket, white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. These will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed. Please label your child's kit clearly with their name. Pupils with long hair will need a hairband to tie it back and earrings must be able to be removed by the pupil or please take these out before you send your child to school. 
Reading Challenge:
Children will have the opportunity this year to 'Read the Rainbow'. If your child reads 3 times a week at home they will move on our reading rainbow and earn a colour certificate. Please make sure you record when your child reads at home to help them achieve their rainbows. 
Home Learning:
For home learning this term, we would like children to build their fluency by accessing Numbots at least once a week. We would also like the to read at least three times a week whether this is their allocated reading book, a library book or a book from home. Spelling booklets are sent home half-termly. They are linked to the phonics the children have been learning that week and include some common exception words. A list of the common exception words for Year 1 can be found in the Year 1 Resources section.
