Christ at the heart of all we do

Welcome to our Year 1 Class

In Year 1 we are taught by Mrs. Clay and are supported by Mrs. Wale and Miss Parkinson. Mrs Canty and Mr. Ashworth also teach us when Mrs. Clay is completing her planning and preparation.  

We follow the the school ethos 'Christ at the Heart of All We Do'  to ensure that we can complete our learning to the best of our ability.

Things to remember..

Reading Books

Reading books can be changed daily, but only if an adult has signed to say that their child has read and has finished their reading book. A house point will be reward when a book has been completed.

Children are to remember to put any books that need changing into the 'reading book changing box'.

If they are not put into the box in the morning they will  be changed on the following day.

Spelling Folders

Spelling folders will be sent home every Thursday. The spellings should be learnt at home throughout the week for the test on the following Thursday. Ideas for how to help learn spellings have been sent home and can be found below on this page.

Spelling folders will need to be handed back in every Thursday, so new words can be added for the following week. (Hand in Thursday – back out the same Thursday)

 

Snack time

Snack time takes place at morning playtime. The snack consists of a vegetable or a piece of fruit. If your child does no like the snack provided by school, a piece of fruit or vegetable snack can be sent in from home. If your child receives school milk, this will also be consumed at snack time. If your child does not receive school milk, they can have a drink from the water bottle they have brought from home.

Water bottles

Children are allowed to bring water bottles into school. They will be kept in a box by the sink and the children will have access to them throughout the day.

 Handwriting

In Year 1 we are improving our presentation by learning to use cursive handwriting. An alphabet strip can be accessed below,  showing you how we form the letters when writing.

P.E.

P.E. days are Monday and Thursday so don't forget to come to school in PE kit on those days!

If you have any problems regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to speak to me directly or make an appointment through the school office.
