Welcome to our Year One (Y1) 2023/24 Class Page!

Hello, we all support and work with our Year 1 children.

Our teacher is Mrs D Royston (left)

Our class is supported by Mrs P Lowe (centre)

Our PPA Cover is provided (usually on a Wednesday) by Mrs R Tomlinson (right)

Our class name is ‘Owls’ which fits in with our whole school them of British birds.

In our class we learn through lots of play and will be using continuous provision during the Autumn term, before gradually becoming a more formal classroom.

We spend time both indoors and outdoors in all weathers!

We have an exciting curriculum that links the EYFS and the KS1 formal curriculum. During the year children access a range of exciting topics to enthuse and excite them! If we can help you or your child in any way please let us know.

Homework in Year 1

We hope you can spend some time each day supporting your child at home. We recommend 10 minutes for reading and another 5 minutes for spelling / Numbots.

Children will bring home phonics homework each week in a folder with sounds or words to practise with you. Regular practise will enable children to recognise and recall the sounds or red words immediately, as well as practise blending sounds together to read the green words.

They also bring home two reading books, which are matched to what they have learnt in phonics. The purpose of the books are for children to practise the sounds and skills taught, as well as to enjoy the growing independence of reading. We will send home bookmarks each term with suggested questions to discuss when sharing books at home.

The children have a short spellings test each week and they have an individual spelling book in their book bag.

The Numbots website is a fantastic resource, intended to practise key knowledge and build up rapid recall of number facts.
