Welcome to Year 1
A Rainbow of Opportunity
'Human potential is without limit if we are motivated and engaged.'
We believe that children should experience life in all of its fullness (John 10:10).
With a growth mindset, you can do anything.
I will be posting weekly news and updates on this page so please check regularly. We also have a Year 1 class blog that is updated each week with what we have been doing in school. Please read and share this with your child.

PE will be taught every Monday afternoon. PE kits are no longer required to be kept in school, please can children come to school wearing their PE kit on Mondays, they will wear them throughout the day.
Forest School will be take place every Wednesday afternoon. We ask children to wear their school jumper/top with jogging bottoms for the day, as well as trainers. Children must bring waterproofs in a named bag ready to change into for the session in the afternoon.
Our Gold award is given to children who have been recognised for their effort and positive mindset.
Our Platinum award recognises children who display Christian values every day.

Reading: The children should be reading at home 10 minutes every night. Please record when your child has read in their reading diary and team points will be awarded for reading 5 times a week. They could read their Guided Reading book, a home reader or a book from home. The key is to read little and often. Please question your child when reading to develop their comprehension skills.
Spelling Shed - Spelling Shed can be played as much as you see fit! Assignments will change weekly based on our Phonics learning in school. There will also be a continuous assignment based on Common Exception Words (tricky words that can't be sounded out).
We are currently revising Phase 3 Phonics, here is the list of sounds we have been learning.
