In Year 1 we value children driving their own learning and ensure that they have many opportunities to explore and develop their knowledge and understanding in every lesson.  We believe in practical and engaging experiences that excite and motivate children to learn.  For each topic we have a launch day which the children thoroughly enjoy.  Everyday we start with reading, phonics,literacy and maths.  In the afternoons we explore a part of our topic together and then the children engage in discovery time where they can choose their own learning linked to our topic.

This term our topic is "How are you?" We will be focusing on finding out about our body, the people who help us to look after ourselves and significant historical figures who have been influential within this.  Our launch day will take place on Tuesday 19th January, all of the children need to dress up as a health care professional and during the day we will be finding out about different health care professionals and what their jobs entail.

We already know the interest you take in your child’s work. If you can, please discuss with your child the work they have done as the term progresses and let them teach you.

Please can you read with your child daily, it is really important for the children to re-read familiar texts to build up their fluency and using sounds learnt in class to segment unknown words.

Our learning poster will change every Friday to show you what we have learnt that week and the maths challenge for the term.  You can then use this to support your child at home.  

Spellings are on a Monday and we learn spellings that reflect the weeks phonics learning as well as the key words children need to learn by the end of year 1.

New spellings will be given on a Tuesday

We have PE on Wednesday

We use the ICT suite on a Thursday

We have guided reading on a Friday and we will visit the library
