In Year 1 we have two teachers. Miss Robinson in 1CR and Mr Cornick in 1SC. 
We also have four teaching assistants. Mrs Greaves, Mrs Remes, Mrs Osborne and Mrs Randall.

Autumn Term - Party Planners

This term has started with the children recieving a letter from The Queen. It asks the children to help her in planning a party which celebrates the culture and unique aspects of the United Kingdom. Throughout the topic, the children will be looking at contrasting locality and learning much about the United Kingdom.

This topic will encompass most of our learning in Geography, Science, History, Art, DT, PE, Music and PSHE as well as feature in our English lessons where appropriate. 

We will be posting photographs of what the children have been doing onto Tapestry, if you do anything at home related to the class topic and wish to share with us, we would love to see it on Tapestry too.

In Phonics this term we are going to be doing a brief recap of Phase 2. These lessons are taught twice a day and all work towards enabling the children to become confident and more independent readers. The phonemes taught during this phase are:

  • Set 1: s, a, t, p.
  • Set 2: i, n, m, d.
  • Set 3: g, o, c, k.
  • Set 4: ck, e, u, r.
  • Set 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss.

We will then be revising and embedding Phase 3 which includes the following phonemes:

  • Set 6: j, v, w, x.
  • Set 7: y, z, zz, qu.
  • Consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, ng.
  • Vowel digraphs: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er.

In Maths we are currently learning about place value to 10 and sorting. We have began using ten frames regularly when representing numbers. 

We are really looking forward to getting to know your children this year and working with them all throughout the year.
