Spring Term

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, on a Tuesday and Friday.  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 – Each child has a set reading day each week where they will read with an adult in school.  Children’s reading books will be changed on this day.  Reading days are:

Monday – Dolphins       Tuesday -Turtles        Wednesday – Stingrays         Thursday – Sharks          Friday – Jellyfish


Please make sure children have their reading books and reading record in school everyday, as we will make the most of any opportunities to do extra reading sessions with the children throughout the week.  The books children are bringing home to read should be at a level the children can read confidently by themselves to an adult, only needing help with the occasional word. It is really important for children at this stage in their reading to be reading the same book a few times over the week before changing it, so that they can build fluency in their reading and commit tricky words to memory.

  • 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.  Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday and be checked in school the following Tuesday.

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 also need to be practised 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:
