Welcome to Year 1
Welcome to the exciting world of Year One! This is a very important year, making the transition from the Reception curriculum to working in Key Stage One. We have lots of exciting learning to do this year and lots of challenges to tackle. Our topics include Who am I?, Where in the United Kingdom is Paddington Bear?, Can you tell me a story? and many more! We will be inviting visitors and going out to different places to help our learning come to life.
A big part of Year 1 is phonics and using our amazing knowledge of sounds to help us become super confident readers. Reading five times a week at home will really help us with this, and we can work as a team to win a prize as a class. We also try and learn to join our writing by the end of this year so we do a lot of practising in lots of different ways.
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.
Mrs Beale, Mrs Mackinnon and Mrs Sparks.
