Welcome to Year 1! We're really looking forward to having the children back in school from Monday. Year 1 is a fun and exciting year as the children move from Foundation Stage and develop their independence in learning. Learning is made exciting through the use of interesting topics and texts. A big focus for this year is reading and developing an enjoyment for reading individually and in groups. The children will develop their maths skills and problem solving, building on their prior knowledge and experiences. Our aim is for the children to learn through fun and exciting experiences. We are looking forward to meet them all and watch as they grow and mature throughout the year.

Daily Phonics

With the planned return to school for some of the children the way phonics at home is delivered will be changing. We will be making more use of the Ruth Miskin You Tube Channel. Each day the channel posts a number of videos for children to watch. These are Set 1 sounds, Set 2 sounds and writing, Set 3 sounds and writing, reading longer words and reading RED words.

Your child will be able to tell you which set they should be doing but if they appear to be struggling try them on an earlier set to build confidence.
The videos once posted remain on the site for a day and can be watched at any time. Each video is around 10 -15 mins long and for the spellings your child will need access to a pencil and paper.
 

Mrs Oliver’s group should look at Set 2 Sounds.
Miss Parsons’ group should look at Set 3 Sounds and Spellings.
Mrs Douglas’ and Mrs Dowdall’s groups should look at Set 3 Sounds and Spellings
Mr Davis’s group should look at Set 3 Sounds and Spelling and Reading Longer Words
All children should have a go at the reading Red Words.

 
Remember, if your child is struggling try them on an earlier set to build confidence.

Online learning 

We have decided to go back to the original online learning method. You will see the daily task links below.

Teachers really like to see your work and read your emails so please try to check-in at least once a week using your year group email (Remember to label the email with your teacher’s name).

Many of the teachers will be in school or getting things ready for school from now on, but if you need help with your work during the school day Mrs Douglas and Mrs Macias will be online to help you. 

You can still contact Mr Davis and Miss Parsons using the year group email.  However, as they will be doing other things for most of the day, you may need to wait a little while for them to reply.  They are still very keen to see photographs of the lovely things you are doing at home and to just to catch up on how you are feeling.

We absolutely love this Max and we'll all be rushing the place orders with The Meatball Man!

Kaiden has a new friend! This is Ken the butterfly. Ken was meant to be released with other butterflies but he very sadly has a poorly wing and can't fly. Kaiden has been so kind and thoughtful by deciding to look after Ken. It looks like Ken really enjoys your company Kaiden. Well done!
 
   
 
Harry has been working really hard at home. He has written such a lovely letter to Max from 'Where the Wild Things Are'. Well done Harry!
 
     
 
Josie has drawn a brilliant picture of the Amazon Rainforest. We love this Josie, well done!
