Welcome to our class page, where you will find lots of useful information about what are learning, upcoming events and also a few reminders to help us all get ready for the next few weeks.  Please keep checking the website regularly for updates about things happening around school. Below are some general bits of information:

Class Reminders

  • Each week in Y1 we have two PE lessons, one outdoor and one indoor session.  We encourage the children to keep their kits in school for the half term.  They will be sent home during the last week of the half term to be washed and checked.  Please make sure your child has their kit in school, so they are able to take part fully in lessons (white t-shirt, black shorts/ jogging bottoms and pumps.  Trainers are a good idea for outdoor PE as it can be damp.)
  • Please make sure that all items of clothing, including coats and shoes, are clearly named.
  • Reading Books will be handed out this week.  Each child will have a set day each week, where they will read in school to an adult.  If needed, reading books will be changed on the day they are heard reading.  In KS1 we would encourage the children to change their books more often than once a week, so we also have a reading basket in our classroom, where children can put their reading books to be changed whenever they need.  All we ask is that this is done first thing in the morning (we will remind them each day) and that their reading record has been signed by and adult at home.
  • Homework – In addition to their reading books, this year the children will bring home some spellings to practise and one extra piece of homework each week.  This will alternate between English and Maths based activities and will focus things we have been learning that week in class.  Homework is given out on a Friday, and is expected back on the following Tuesday.

We will soon be updating the page with photos showing all of the exciting learning happening in our classroom and an overview of topics we will be covering, in different subjects over the coming weeks.  Further information about topics can be found on our class curriculum map.

Spellings

Children will bring home a set of spellings each week.  These are the words we will be focusing on in our daily spelling sessions at school, but it can really help to spend some time practising these at home as well.  There are some suggestions on ways to practise the spellings at the bottom of each sheet.  New spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday and will be checked in school on a Tuesday.  This weeks spellings can be found below:
