Year 1


Welcome to Year 1.

Welcome to the Year 1 space; we are your class teachers – Miss Fiona McCurdy and Miss Gemma May. We work closely with our classroom teaching assistants, Mrs Wiggins and Mrs Holbem.

We always welcome parents to come and share any concerns you may have with us. Can we please ask that this happens at the end of the day, if possible, as mornings are very busy and we have activities to set up and the children to settle. 

Our topics for term 1 is This is Me.

Our topic for term 2 is Celebrations.

Homework

Reading

Children who read regularly at home make faster progress and can develop a greater love of reading. Please read with your child as often as possible – share stories together and encourage your child to read to you at least 4 times a week. Talk about the story and ask questions to help develop their understanding.


Maths – We also allocate maths games to the children, linked to our Abacus maths scheme. These activities will appear on the 'Abacus' website - the children have been given their log-in details which you can find on their homework folder. Homework is given out on Fridays, to be returned by the following Wednesday, and covers a range of subjects linked to classroom activities.


PE days

Miss McCurdy (1FMc): tbc

Miss May (1GM): tbc

PE kits should consist of a plain white T shirt, plain blue or black shorts and trainers.
Some PE sessions will take place outside, so in colder weather tracksuit bottoms and a jumper are also useful. In the summer, we would ask that children wear a sunhat for outdoor activities (and for playtimes).
