The document below shows activities that are linked to the curriculum objectives and outcomes that Year One would have been working on this half term. Each box has a different theme for you to work on.  You can simplify these by completing them in part day by day, or similarly extend them as you wish. I have also included some hints for challenge. 

Feel free to adapt them to your child's ability/learning style/independence level.

Important note: Please support your child in part, give instructions, hints and pointers, but ensure your child's work is not solely a copying exercise as 'developing independence' in writing/phonics is the name of the game.

Don't forget to log in to seesaw - maths and phonics will appear there.

Self Isolating home work Autumn 2

If you are self isolating, please see activities to complete at home. 

You should also upload all of your work to seesaw.

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!



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 can be found on the Meet the teacher PPT.

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.
