Another busy week in Year 1

Friday 12th September | 4 comments

This week we have been busy hearing all the children read and they were excited to get a reading record. Are they enjoying reading at home? Remember they don’t need to read a whole book every night – little and often is best! Your child can change their book before and after school and we will remind them on a Friday to get a new book for the weekend.
We have also been assessing each child’s maths knowledge and we have been impressed with how much lots of them already know. Next week we will start our Year 1 curriculum and the children will be working in small groups with an adult and also independently during our literacy and maths lessons. We will also begin our daily phonic sessions and guided reading.

The children thoroughly enjoyed their first ICT lesson. They all had their own laptop and were taught how to log on using their own password and username.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in family tree photographs. Your child will need them for our topic sessions next week. Your child also needs to bring a soft toy to school on Wednesday and Thursday – see our separate post.

Please make sure that your child’s PE kit is on their peg as many children didn’t have them this week. We will be doing PE twice a week.

The children also need to bring their library book back every Friday ready to choose a new one.

Thank you to everyone who has left comments on our blog – the children have enjoyed reading them.

Have a lovely weekend.
The Year 1 Team

    Maisy was really excited to tell me all about her time working on the computers. Her words were “they were grown up computers not pretend ones”.
    She is really enjoying her time in year 1 despite the odd teary farewell on a morning!
