Our first days in year One...

Hello and welcome to our new Year 1 families! 

After such a long wait, we are finally back!!! It's been just fabulous to see the children all together in their school uniforms and looking so grown up!

Today we talked about our Y1 routines - in light of Covid, table places, groupings and we learned about using some of the learning areas around the classroom.

It's been a little strange not being able to hang around at the end of the day and chat to parents about how their child went on - on their first day in Year one, but I'm pleased to tell you that ALL children have been just great and i'm so impressed!



Seesaw will soon be up and running but until then I will continue to add messages onto the app and post on this class page.



Just bring a drinking bottle and a book bag to school with your snack in - old reading books can be put into one of the boxes in the foyer area/bench outside the foyer area, to be quarantined. More information on home reading will come soon.

Y1 children will not need their Forest schools kit until after half term.

Please come to school wearing your PE kit on Thursdays.

It is advisable to send at least 2 lots of snack - one for morning and one for afternoon play.

Snack from the kitchen will be available from next week 7.09.20

Children will need sun-cream and a sun hat during hot weather and a warm coat in the winter.

Please pre-order your school dinners.

I will open the classroom door just before 9am so children can just come in on arrival - this will avoid too many people congregating in the playground.

You can collect children from 3.15pm - 3.30pm (for the same reason)

Most importantly, we are here for you - if you have any worries or questions about anything - call, or drop us an email. Similarly, if you are chuffed with something, please let us know too as it's always nice to know! :)

More information will be out on the Meet the teacher power point next week. Watch this space!

Thank you for being so understanding and compliant with the adjustments to school life. 

See you tomorrow for another day of learning!

Year one take part in daily phonics which aim to recover previously learned letter to sound correspondences as well as teach new and alternative spellings. Usually following the format of 'revisit and review - learn something new - practise - apply' Children access snappy and engaging activities to support them in their reading and spelling.

As the statutory Phonics Screening Check takes place in Year 1 (summer term) we prepare by revising sounds learned in Reception and also learn new Y1 sounds and spellings.

You can prepare for the phonics screening check at home by following this link 

Soon, Homework will also be sent home in the children's book bags to support phonics and spellings and you can also access many phonics games and apps on the internet.
