Welcome to Year 1
Welcome back, we hope you had a wonderful Easter break and are ready for an exciting term!
Our teachers are Mrs Smither's and Mrs Fields. We are also very lucky to have other helpers in our class including Mrs Bexx, Mrs Waters and Maureen.
Year 1 has lots of exciting topics for the children to explore and we will be conducting a piece of writing every Friday in our Big Write sessions. Please remember to talk with the children about their ‘talk homework’ topic in preparation for the big write on a Friday! This will go out every Monday.
During this term, we will be taking part in our Toys topic. We will be focusing on how toys have changed over the last 100 years. We will be making our own puppets and look at moving toys in ICT.
Phonics and spelling will continue to be implemented through Read Write Inc. We will practise writing more independently by using our phonic knowledge.
