Welcome to Year 1, where we learn through play and structured tasks.
We enjoy learning as a whole class with the teacher, in small groups with an adult and we enjoy learning in the 'Challenge Areas', which are similar to the Continuous Provision Areas set up in EYFS. Our 'Challenge Areas' support independent learning and collaboration with our friends. They are linked to the beginning of our journey on the National Curriculum.
 
We begin the year with themed work on our class author, Julia Donaldson. We enjoy exploring the woodlands in the school grounds, linking our learning to 'The Gruffalo' and the 'school grounds/local area'.
 
We LOVE preparing for and performing our Class Sunshine Assemblies, where our families come to watch.
 
We look forward to class trips and we usually visit the zoo in the summer term.
 
PE
Monday, Wednesday and Friday
 
Please bring your PE kit to school on the first day of the new term. Please ensure that it is named and is in a drawstring bag.
 
Snack
We have weekly government funded fruit deliveries and each child in EYFS and KS1 may have piece of fruit at morning break.
 
Water Bottles
Please bring a clearly named water bottle to school each day.
 
Home Reading
We ask that children keep their reading book for at least 2 nights so the the book can be read and discussed. Ideas for discussions are in your child's reading diary.
When the book is ready to be changed, please place it it the 'books to be changed' box on the playground/Breakfast Club, before coming into school.
Please sign and comment in the reading diary before placing in the box.
 
Homework
Thursday - Spelling/handwriting is given a weekly basis. Each Thursday the children will be given a short spelling quiz on the words they have been learning that week.
