Year 1 Information 2017
Welcome to Year 1.
Throughout Year 1 your child will continue to develop their reading skills. Teachers will spend some time each day on dedicated phonic work to help your child read individual words. For the children’s “home readers”, they will be selecting their own books (with increasing independence) from a box of appropriately levelled books. Please bear with us in these early weeks as we work with your children to ensure they are reading books from the correct band. Children will choose a book from their coloured band to read at home with your support. It is important that you hear your child read regularly. We hope that your child will now be starting to write their own comments in their reading diary. Please encourage your child to take pride in their diary by writing in a pencil rather than ink pens.
Continuous Provision in Year 1
Hopefully you will feel informed about the way our school day is designed and curriculum delivered following our recent parents’ information evening. A key element of Continuous Provision is that while we plan learning experiences for your children, we will be led by their interests and ideas. Having said that, we intend to deliver curriculum subjects – unless of course we get taken on a vastly different learning journey by your children!
Children need their P.E kit in school everyday, including PE shoes for the games element as some sessions may take place outside. With this in mind, a pair of joggers would be useful for when the weather gets colder. Earrings cannot be worn during P.E. Children with long hair will need to have it tied up or bring in a band for PE lessons.
All children should bring to school a plastic bottle for fresh water which can be kept in the classroom. It would be appreciated if the bottle could have a “sports cap” to avoid spillages.
All children need to have a waterproof coat in school everyday as we will be going out at lunchtime playtime if there is a light drizzle. As much of our learning will take place in our outdoor environment, your child will need a coat in school so that they can access activities which are outdoors.
Each class has its own Twitter page as well as a class webpage. Please follow us to find out what your children will have been doing:
Our email addresses can be found on class webpages.
If you have any queries, or anxieties, regarding any aspect of your child’s school life please see us as soon as they arise so that we can find solutions together.
We look forward to a happy and busy year with you all.
