Welcome to 1L
Class Teacher: Miss A Leaney
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bell
In year 1, we have a broad and balanced curriculum. Throughout the year we will cover interesting and exciting topics, these include:
Once Upon a Time
Paws, Claws and Whiskers
Each topic will include a visit or educational experience to enhance the children's learning and bring their learning alive.
Each week your child will read with an adult at school and this will be recorded in their reading record. We encourage parents/carers to read as often as possible at home, please aim for a minimum of three times a week, and write a comment in their child's reading record. There will be a reading club held on a Friday to support children's progress in reading. We encourage children to be independent and therefore children are responsible for changing their own reading books once finished.
We welcome all parents and carers to our reading morning which is held every Thursday 8:40-9:00 am.
Spellings will be given on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. Spellings will include number names (zero to twenty), days of the week, months of the year as well as words linked to our daily phonics sessions.
Homework will be given out each Thursday and will include both English and Maths. We ask that homework is handed in on the following Tuesday. We encourage children to do their own homework as it is always better to have a go and make mistakes rather than to not try at all. We will hold a homework club each Thursday for those children who need additional support with their homework.
