We have had a wonderful start to the year and we are already so proud of how well the children have settled into Year 1.
I will regularly update our web page with information on routines and what we have been doing so please check it regularly.

Year 1 Curriculum Overview
Homework - Week 7 - 15.10.21
We have had another busy and exciting week this week and the children have continued to work extremely hard. We have continued to feel very proud of how well they have settled into Year 1.
For homework this week, please continue to practise key math skills on the NumBots website or app for a few minutes each day.
The spellings for this week can be found below. Please continue to practise the spellings at home as it really does make a difference to how the children do. It also supports them in developing and building upon their phonic skills.
Have a lovely weekend,
A Very Special Visitor!
Today we were very lucky to welcome a new visitor to our classroom, Dale!
Mrs Griffin brought her pet tortoise, Dale, to school. She talked to us about the type of animal he was, where he lived and how she took care of him. A few of the children said they had pet tortoises at home too!
The children all enjoyed holding or stroking him (even if they were a little frightened at first!).
Autumn Welly Walk
Whilst we had some drier weather we were able to venture out of school for our first welly walk of the year. The children were very excited! Before we set off we talked about the term 'seasons' and shared our opinions of what season we thought we were in.
After changing into our wellies we set off to venture around the local area. We took small bags to collect items that showed which season we were in, such as leaves.
Here are a few photos of our first adventure!
Homework - Week 6 - 8.10.21
I hope the children have been enjoying spending some time on NumBots. We had a go at school earlier in the week and all the children seemed very excited by it! Please encourage your child to spend a few minutes on it each day.
Spellings for this week:
Homework - Week 5 - 1/10/21
There is a new '2Do' activity set on Purple Mash. Next week I begin sending out details of a new website, Numbots, which we will begin using as part of our homework tasks.
The list of this week's spellings are below.
Homework, Week 4 -24/9/21
The children completed their first spelling test yesterday and everyone did well.
This week's math's homework is another activity on Purple Mash. There are two activities which will help practise the skills of counting one more and one less.
The lists for this weeks spellings are below.
Homework - Week 3 - 17/9/21
I will be setting weekly homework consisting of spellings and a Math activity.
There will be two spelling groups with a different list for each one. The spelling list your child needs to use depends on the phonic group they are in. The children (should!) know which phonic group they are in, either the professor group or the Einstein group. If your child is unsure then please email me and I will confirm.
The spelling lists are based on sounds or words the children have covered throughout the week in our phonics sessions. When practicing, encourage and remind your child to use their 'Fred talk' (tapping each finger on the chin as the next sound is heard and said) to help segment and identify the phonemes (sounds) in the word. Please watch the video for an example of 'Fred talk'.
Spelling List - Professor group
Spelling List - Einstein group
This week our Maths homework is an activity on Purple Mash. We have stuck your child's login details into their reading record.
Once you are logged into Purple Mash you should see a '2Do' activity appear. This is the activity your child needs to complete for this weeks homework.
Any problems with either pieces of homework then please contact me through the Y1 email address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Have a lovely weekend,
