Welcome To Year 1
The Year One team consists of Mrs Gill and Mrs Ewers. Mrs Gill is available to speak to at the end of day or can be contacted through Class Dojo or the school office.
We begin each day with handwriting, guided reading, phonics, English & maths. Lessons that are part of the wider curriculum are usually taught in the afternoon. On Thursday afternoons from 2:30pm, we welcome family members and carers to read with the children in the 'Reading Cafe'.
We encourage that the children read to an adult every day and that reading diaries are signed. We change their reading books as required.
Children will take their Phonics Check in June. This is something that we work towards Information about the Phonics check is communicated through a meeting in the Spring term If you are unable to attend this meetings, please let a member of the Year Oner team know as we are more than happy to provide a copy of the information provided during the meetings.
PE lessons are every Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school and earrings are removed before school.
If you would like any further advice or guidance on how to support your child at home then please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year One team. We thank you for your continued support.
