Welcome to Year One's Class Page!
Mrs Greer, Mrs Barrett and Mrs O'Neill are looking forward to working with you and your child. On our page you will find a variety of things we have done over the year across all areas of learning. Photos will be published in the 'photos' star, so please make sure you take a look so you don't miss a thing! If you can't see photos of your child, please check with us as we may not have your consent form! We hope you enjoy looking at Year One!
New spellings will go out on Fridays and are loaded on to this website.
Children can practise their spellings in lots of ways such as look, cover, write, check, repeating the words, using a rhyme for each letter of the word, finding common words in the word that they already know and can see, segmenting the word or breaking it down into syllables.
Please hand in homework by Wednesday.
We will mark these and aim to send out new homework on the same day. They will receive some phonics work, related to our ‘Letters and Sounds’ work but we consider reading with your child regularly as a key part of homework. We will also be sending home some tasks related to our knowledge organisers. In addition to this, there are some tasks that are set as an optional extra for your child on Purple Mash. Please see us for your child's password.
Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week at home with an adult and the reading diary is signed. We check diaries regularly and children are allowed to move their face on our chart. If children read three or more times in a week they receive 1 house point on Friday.
You can help your child to read by...
- Guiding them to break down longer words so that they can be decoded .
- Asking them what has happened so far before continuing to read (Summarizing)
- Encouraging your child to predict what may happen part way through and how they might know this.
- Asking your child questions about characters' feelings, emotions and thoughts.
- Point out changes in type (like italics/ bold writing/ size of letters) and discuss why the author has done this.
Please ensure children have an indoor and outdoor PE kit that is labelled and jewellery is removed.
