Year One

Year 1 - Key Stage 1

Mrs C Edwards

The school year has begun and in Year 1 we will be working like crazy and having lots of fun too!

Here are some ways in which you could help your child to learn at home:

PE days: PE is on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Children must remember to bring PE kits at the start of each half term and keep them in school; otherwise they miss out on the activities.

Spelling tests: WSe have weekly spelling tests. Please practice with your children at home to help them gain confidence and feel secure with their spellings. 

Homework: Your child will receive a half termly Homework Menu. Children will receive their Homework Menu at the start of each half term and will be asked to complete 3 tasks: one starter, one main and one dessert by the end of the half term. Please bring your homework into school once it is completed for us to display for everyone to see.

Reading: Please make sure you read with your child regularly and sign their reading records to say that they have read. Children are taught the skills for reading in school but it is important that they practise and read at home to put the skills to use. Your child will need their reading book at school each day.

Maths: There is a lot to learn this year in maths.  Please practise number bonds to 10 or 20. For example if you say the number 16, children should be able to say the number 4 because these two numbers make 20. You could also count with your child in as many different ways as possible. We are working on counting on in 2s, 5s and 10s.

You will receive a Curriculum Map each half term which will tell you what we are learning about. Please help your children at home by discussing work done in school and sharing your own knowledge on the topics we are covering.

If you have any questions or wish to know of additional ways to help your child to learn at home, please do contact me, I will be very willing to help!
