Welcome to Year 1

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all parents and children to Year 1. We hope your child’s time in year 1 will be happy and productive.
Moving from one setting to another can be an anxious time for you and your child. We aim to make the transition from their familiar Early Years experience to the Year 1 classes as smooth and enjoyable as we can. If there are any concerns please do not hesitate to call or email us.

The classroom is a bright, learning environment for the children. Children are taught a range of subjects. We use a range of high quality children’s books, mathematical problem solving and child friendly topics, such as dinosaur discoveries, in order to engage the children.  Children are taught in their classrooms for most curriculum areas. Each day they have time in their phonics group, in order to meet their individual needs. Children are expected to try hard and do their best in all their work.

We would also ask parents to ensure:

  • Names are on all items of clothing.
  • Your child has a water bottle with them each day.
  • Reading books are in school each day (They will be changed on Mondays and Thursday).
     

Remember to share lots of books with your children and make reading fun. There are some ideas here. https://alibrarylady.blog/2021/01/05/reading-for-pleasure-resources-to-help-children-enjoy-books-at-home-2/

You also have your Ed shed games for mental maths and spelling, https://www.edshed.com/en-gb/menu

The games on Phonics Play help to further practise phonic skills. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

There are additional home learning lessons available on the Oak Academy. https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-1

Do not hesitate to contact us if you need help with the tech, or are worried about anything.

Mrs Delafield and Mrs Bacigalupo
