Welcome back! We hope that you have had a fun filled 6 weeks break with your child/ren. Over the next couple of weeks we will be settling the children back into the Y1 classroom routine that will follow a similar structure to the end of FS2. During the term the children will gradually move from a play-based to a formal learning style which will be age appropriate for Year 1 children.
Our P.E. days this term are Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you can make sure your child has a named P.E. kit in school on these days.
In Year 1 there is a big focus on reading and any extra reading you can support your child with at home is invaluable to your child/ren's learning journey. Additionally, the children will be undergoing a 'Phonics Check', this will take place in June 2020.
Your child's 'Maths Passport' target for the first term will be 'Say the numbers 1 to 20 accurately', Say 1 more than any number between 0 and 20, Say 1 less than any number between 0 and 20'. Maths passports are regularly updated when your child has shown us on a number of occasions that they are secure in the objective they are working on.
Should you have any queries then please let us know and we will try to answer them or alternatively use the dojo messaging service. Please note that these messages are not always picked up during the day during lesson time.
We are looking forward to working alongside your child in the coming year.
Welcome to Year 1!
