We hope that you have all had a lovely summer break. We are pleased to say that the children have returned to school eager to learn and we are sure that it will be a fantastic year for all. Below is the Year Group Curriculum overview for this year, which gives details of what your child will be learning in Year 1.
We would also like to take this opportunity to introduce the year 1 team; Ms Bradfield is the Year group leader and class teacher for 1JB, Ms Bhatt is the class teacher for 1B and Ms Crowder is the class teacher 1C.
Please help and encourage your children with their homework. This will be sent out every Tuesday to be returned to school the following Monday. Homework will be mainly set online with a supplementary piece of Topic homework to complete over the week. We will support families without computer access at home by offering an allocated time in the ICT suite at school where needed. If any work is completed on paper, your child will return this to their Class homework box. Please be advised that teachers will not be able to comment or feedback on work for at least 72 hours from when it has been handed in due to COVID regulations at this time.
It would be very much appreciated if you could continue to read with your children on a daily basis – this really does make a huge difference in terms of both achievement and a love of reading. This year we would like you to sign their pupil planner when you have heard your child read, please leave a comment to say whether they enjoyed the book etc.
Currently we are asking that your child to wear a full P.E. kit to school on their P.E days. The kit should include: black shorts or tracksuit bottoms (dependent on weather), white polo shirt and trainers. We advise that children wear their school jumper / cardigan.
We would like every child to have a water bottle with them in school in order to stay hydrated during the day. Please ensure this is labelled with their name.
If you have any questions, please do send an email to the year group email address: email@example.com or call the school office and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We look forward to having your support throughout this academic year.
The Year 1 team
