Welcome to Year 1 2020/2021

Welcome to Summer 2!

We are eager to finish the year of strong. Our English text for this term will be 'Grace and family' where we look to explore the relevant themes for the children. With the children nearing Year 2 we will continue to consolidate their phonics and maths knowledge. The Year 1 Team are excited for our final term with the children and can't wait to see all of their progress.

Homework will be set every Friday afternoons on google classroom. There will not be homework books provided for tasks. Please encourage children to complete the tasks to help practice skills learned in class. 



Tests will be given on Thursdays. Children can revise and practice their words. Please find attached the document of the spelling lists for Spring 2. 






Please read with your child for at least 10 minutes every evening. Encourage your child to talk about the text and if possible, give them the opportunity to read aloud.

Reading books will be given on Fridays (1 for each child to read at their ability and 1 to read for enjoyment with a parent).  Please fill and sign their reading record book each time. These books must be returned to school on Wednesdays and a new book will be given again on Friday. As part of our COVID procedures, books will be kept in a sealed box for 3 days before they are used again. Please use the reading records as a source of communication with the teachers so we can make sure they are reading books at the correct level.
