Each morning, as children enter, we start with a Basic Skills Literacy Session concentrating on learning to write our names, the date and the Year 1 high frequency words. We will move onto using these sessions for basic punctuation, handwriting, grammar and various literacy word or sentence level requirements. 

Following this at 9:00 we have a school assembly or in class collective worship.  We then return to the classroom at 9:30 for English, followed by Maths at 10:30. At 11:20 we have a daily phonics session before dinner at 11:50.  Children return to class at 12:50 and begin their afternoon sessions until 14:00. These sessions cover RE, PE, Geography, Science and History, Music and ICT.  At the end of the day children have a whole class guided reading session from 14:30-15:00.  As our children do their learning in smaller groups with an adult the other children access learning opportunities in the continuous provision areas.

Reading

Reading Books: Children are provided with a reading book and Reading Record. Please encourage your child to read a little each night and please sign in their reading record.  READING BOOKS TO BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY PLEASE. Please keep in the plastic bag we have provided. Further/replacement bags 50p each. Reading Records are checked throughout the week and books changed if required.  However, children can change their reading book at other times during the week if needed as we encourage ‘Reading for Pleasure.’

Here is a link to the Year 1 National Curriculum document which shows in more detail the objective we cover.

Maths

In maths children are continually reinforcing their knowledge of reading and writing numbers and place value. Children have been working hard on number bonds and investigating patterns in addition and subtraction calcualtions. During Autumn 2 children will be investigating shapes in the environment and their properties.

English

In English we explore books from a range of genre to develop our speaking and listening skills, reading and writing. We also work hard to improve our knowledge and use of different punctuation and grammar. We also develop our word decoding and spelling skills during daily phonics sessions and a weekly spelling test. We retell stories, poems and non-fictions texts using a range of talk for writing activities. These include performing the text using actions, story boards and rewriting it in our books. We also use the different texts as models to modify texts and invent our own ideas for writing new texts.

Home Learning

Spellings: Will usually be given out on MONDAYS to learn for spelling tests the following Monday. Completed spelling sheets need to be returned on a Monday to encourage children to complete their spellings in good time. 

Class Newsletters and Mission homework are sent out at the first week of each half term. There will be twelve tasks which can be completed at any time over the half term. We suggest compiling two pieces a week.

P.E.

Games/PE Lessons are on MONDAYS. Children will need indoor kit (shorts and t- shirt) and outdoor kit including trainers to change into.

 

Library

Your child can also visit the school library each week (Friday) and can change their library book and bring it home to share.  It is essential this book is looked after as a small charge will be asked for if the book is lost or damaged. 

Each week we ask for a donation of £1.00 from parents which is used to enrich the children’s learning and provide extracurricular activities.

Thank you for your continued support.
