Welcome to Year 1
Our children are enthusiastic learners who enjoy working as a team. We enjoy working outdoors and trying new things and are rising to the challenges of being in Year 1.
A key aspect of our learning in Year 1 is based on reading and phonics. We will be working hard during the year developing and using our phonic knowledge to enable the children to become happy, confident readers who enjoy and understand a variety of texts.
We are also looking forward to the challenge of reading 5 times a week to earn our reading points and rewards.
Another focus in Year 1 is handwriting. During the year we shall be practising our letter formation and are excited about learning how to join letters and begin to develop a joined handwriting style.
We are looking forward to working with you all throughout this year. Don’t forget, if you have any questions about anything in Year 1 please ask us at the door or leave a message at the Office.
