Welcome to Year One!

 
Class Teachers - Miss Rubie
 
Teaching Assistant - Miss Taylor
 
 
We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to school and to your new class in Year 1. 
 
We will enjoy learning through play and structured tasks 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.
 
This half term we have moved on to our new vehicle text 'Rapunzel' We will be reading lots of traditional tales as well as writing our own - we will even be writing instructions to explain how to catch a witch!
 
It's going to be great!
PE
Monday & Thursday - please remember to come into school in your PE kit on these days.
 
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. 
 
Homework
The children will continue to bring homework home on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. Now, the homework will include spellings to learn, handwriting to practise, a maths task and reading books.
 
Collins Big Cat - you will use your logins to read an e-book that is allocated to you each week which we will also be reading in small groups in class that week. The 3 weekly reading sessions will focus on decoding, prosody and comprehension.
