Welcome to Year One

Welcome to Year One

Hello everybody!

Welcome to the Year One section of the blog. Keep checking for information and regular updates about what is happening in school.

We have 3 classes:

1LF (New Cross)
1CB (New Cross)
1CS (Usher Street)

This week, you should have received your Family Learning Newsletter, which tells you that this term’s topic is called ‘In Our Dreams’, where we will be thinking about the characters and settings in stories. In science, we will be testing materials for a variety of purposes. In maths, we will be understanding how we can use numbers in different ways.

Other useful information:

1CS will have PE on Mondays
1LF and 1CB will have PE on Thursdays.
Please make sure your child brings their PE kit on the correct day. This should be a white T-shirt and either leggings or shorts. If you do not have kit, please contact the office where you can buy kit.

Phonics Screening Check:
At the end of the year, all children in Year 1 will be asked to read and spell a variety of words, including made-up words, to assess their ability in phonics. They must score 32 out of 40 to pass.
Please see the ‘Phonics Screening Check’ link at the top of the Year One page for more information.

Parents are Welcome:
Every Thursday, parents are welcome to come into school until 9:25 to read with their child. There is a ‘Parents’ and Carers’ Page’ at the top of the Year One site for more information.

In our classes, we have talked about having a ‘Can Do’ attitude to learning and that we all work as a team. We believe that this year will be the best one yet!
