ALL ABOUT ME!
Welcome to Year 1. This term we are looking forward to learning 'All About Me', discovering how families are unique. We will be exploring the world using our senses as well as finding out about different types of animals.
We are very excited to introduce our new scheme called 'Maths No Problem'. This term the focus will be all about numbers. We are really looking forward to your support in teaching the children their times tables as part of a whole school approach.
In Year One we encourage the children to read everyday and the home school reading books MUST come into school everyday. The children have the opportunity to change their reading book everyday and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school. We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read a book. If you would like to keep the book a little longer or revisit it at a later time, please let us know.
We are introducing ERIC TIME (Everyone Reads In Class) across the school. ERIC Time will happen every Friday afternoon. To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.
The children will all take part in Dance and Games each week so we would like children to keep their full kit in school at all times. This should include shorts, t-shirts and plimsolls and jogging bottoms.

Please note that there is no swimming this term. Swimming will resume in Term 1.
Please can all items of uniform be clearly named, this includes PE kit. Children find it very hard to identify their own tie or jumper! This is especially important now the weather is warmer and children are taking their jumpers off.
The children will be able to borrow a book from our school library each week. Please could you ensure the book is well looked after and returned every week.

Pear/Plum Classes- Friday
If you have any queries or would like further information, please do not hesitate to ask the Year 1 team.
The children will be receiving a piece of Maths activity and a 'Spelling Detectives' sheet each week. They will receive on a Friday and the Home Learning must be returned by Wednesday. Please note that we do not give spelling words each week. Instead you will receive a list of tricky words at the start of each term.
