Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

I hope that you all had a fantastic summer!

This term our topic is What’s outside our front door? We will be learning about different types of houses,  learning about our local area and we will be doing lots of investigating with maps.

In English, we will be reading ‘The Naughty Bus’ by Jan and Jerry Oke. We will be finding out about the adventures that the bus goes on! We will be practising writing labels, captions and sentences. We will also retell the story and write our own versions.  If you have any books at home about transport or any stories about vehicles going on adventures then please bring them in to share. 

The children will receive a school reading book and a reading record. It would be very helpful if the children could read as often as possible at home. If the children do read at home, please write in their reading record and this can include a school reading book or any book that they read from home.  Reading book bags need to be brought to school each day along with reading records. Please let one of the adults in year one know if their book needs changing.

English or maths homework will be sent home each Friday and children must bring their homework back by the following Thursday. Please can the children do all of their homework in pencil. I’ll be awarding stickers for neatly presented homework.

Our focus in PE this term is gymnastics. The children will need their PE kit in school every week. I will update their PE day when it is confirmed. I will be giving out house points to those children that have their PE kit! Please make sure that the children have a white t-shirt, blue/ black shorts and black pumps or trainers. All items need to be clearly labelled with their names please!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions,

Thank you!

Mr Jones
