Spring term 2020
Welcome back to Year 1!
As we move forward though year 1 we are looking at the children becoming a little bit more independent. Starting from the Spring term children will be encouraged to come in from the coat room independently and sort their books and book bags ready to be changed daily. As always members of staff will be on hand to support and settle any children if and when needed.
We have started learning to tell and write stories using ‘Talk for Writing’. This is continued and built upon throughout the school with Year 1 providing a foundation to the approach. Throughout the year we will be focusing on applying our ‘every time toolkit’ when writing alongside learning new skills and vocabulary. As in Reception Class phonics will be taught daily. PE will take place on Tuesday afternoons. We will be outside for PE whenever possible so please ensure your child has a suitable PE kit in school.
