Year 1 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 1
We are delighted and proud that the children have started the new year with confidence and enthusiasm, and we are looking forward to spending another fantastic year with them!
Mrs Hardy and Mrs Holmes are delighted to be supported by Mrs Gail Harper in Year One. The children have already taken a shine to her and Mrs Harper is very impressed by their attitude to learning!
Maths - we will be consolidating number knowledge – ordering, writing, place value, simple addition and subtraction.
Literacy - our Focus Text is The Bog Baby, a magical story by Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward. We will be continuing to practise letter formation and sentence writing, and learning about adjectives.
Phonics - daily phonics sessions, following the Read Write Inc programme, will continue.
Reading Partnership - as in Reception, every child will read to the teacher before bringing home a new book on Wednesday. Please read the book at least three times with your child and write a comment in their Reading Partnership book, before returning it on Monday.
Science - we will focus on animals and science.
Spelling -the children will be tested weekly. A word list will be sent home every Friday for testing the following Friday. The words are High Frequency Words and our tricky Red Words.
Our Topic this term is ‘Let Your Light Shine’. We will be focussing on expressing emotions and talking about our skills and strengths, and what makes us individuals.
In addition, there will be a weekly Music session and regular handwriting sessions.
P.E - in Year One the children have PE with Stockport County every Tuesday and with Mrs Hardy every other Friday. Please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times. Ear-rings must be removed on PE days for health and safety reasons.
Thank you for your continued support and, as ever, if you have any queries please catch us at the end of the day!
Mrs Hardy, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Harper
