Welcome to Year 1

Hello Year 1,

Welcome to the Spring term and ‘Seesaw’. We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas. Below you will find a timetable for home learning. The activities will be scheduled for 6.30pm the evening before, ready for you to complete the following day.

We will be holding a daily ‘MS Teams’ story time session at 10.45am. Our first story is Matilda by Roald Dahl. There will also be a weekly drop in session for parents/carers with any questions, which will take place every Wednesday at 10am.

We are looking forward to seeing all of your work.

Best wishes,

The Year 1 Team

Key Days for your diary:

PE Days

On these days your child must attend school in their PE kit.  The correct colour t-shirt for their house and either shorts or jogging bottoms depending on the weather.  They may wear either their school jumper/cardigan or dark jumper on these days.  Your child will need either trainers or plimsolls but they must be comfortable to wear for the duration of the day and to run around in.   

Please ensure they are warm enough to take part in outdoor PE as where possible we will be outside. 

Tuesday and Wednesday

Library

If you have any school library books at home these will need to be returned before issuing any new books to your child.  If you are unsure of the books you have at home please let us know with a note in their reading record.  

Each fortnight we will visit the library as a class, allowing your child the opportunity to choose their own book to share with you.  This book is for enjoyment and may not match your child's reading ability.  Use these books to feed their imagination ready for story writing in Year 1.

Homework - Reading

We would ask the read with your child as often as possible.  The children have been assessed and are reading books that match their phonic and decoding levels.  Reading regularly is the most effective way to support your child's progress.

Monday and Thursday

English

Our English unit of work this half term is based on writing a scary story with suspense. Our focus text is 'The Magic Paintbrush' by Julia Donaldson.

Year 1 Non negotiables


Please reinforce our Year 1 non-negotiables for writing at home. These are:

  • Using our cursive handwriting, forming our letters correctly.
  • Sitting our letters on the line and ensuring ascending (tall) and descending (long) letters reach high/low enough. 
  • Putting finger spaces in between words.
  • Using capital letters at the beginning of each sentence and for proper nouns.
  • Using full stops at the end of sentences.

Phonics

Your child will take part in phonics lessons daily which will support their reading and writing.  The reading scheme is in line with the phonics phases to give your child practise of the sounds they are learning and linked tricky words.  To support your child's phonic development please refer to the back on the Songbirds book for the focus sounds.  The books have prompts to support parents in their child's phonic and reading development (they can be found on the reserve of the cover).

Reading

Please continue to read with your child as often as possible.  Books will be changed Monday and Thursday which will allow us to put books into quarantine for 48 hours (in line with government guidelines).  We will assess your child's reading termly throughout the year to ensure they are progressing as we would expect.  

When reading with your child please refer to the prompt sheets in your child's reading record.  Spend time looking at the pictures in the book with your child, can they predict the story?  Depending on your child's enjoyment of reading you may wish to read the book to them first, share the book page by page or let your child read the whole book to you.  You will have the book at home for several evenings, please read the book at least twice with your child.  Reading the same book several times allows work on fluency and expression alongside the skills of decoding and comprehension.

Mathematics

We use White Rose Maths as the basis of all our Maths planning at Park Mead. 

This half term our unit focus is 'Addition and Subtraction within 20' and 'Place Value within 50'.  The ethos of White Rose is to ensure your child has a secure understanding of the basic number system, that can then be transferred to larger numbers.
