WELCOME TO YEAR 1!
This year I WILL is our exciting over arching theme. Throughout the year we will encourage the children to dream, dare, ask, achieve, believe, be adventurous, take risks, be curious and creative.
All children will be given a reading record, phonetically decodable book and banded reading book. Please listen to your child read everyday and write a comment in the reading record.
Children should bring in their reading books everyday. We have weekly guided reading sessions and volunteers who listen to the children read.
Inside each reading record is a list of Year 1 common exception words. These words cannot be decoded using phonics. All children are expected to be able to read and spell all of these words by the end of the year. Please refer to this word list regularly in order to help your child learn them.
This Year is going to be packed full of adventures and lots of exciting opportunities and learning. We cant wait to get started!
RE is always at the heart of our learning.
We will recognise that we are surrounded by people who love and care for us. We will learn that there people who have special roles within our parish. We will also learn why Jesus is a very special person in all of our families.
We will explore how the parish family gathers for the Eucharistic Feast. We will retell the story of the Last Supper and learn about importance of Holy Communion during the Mass.
During Lent we will learn that during this time we reflect on life and change. We will retell the story of Palm Sunday and find out why we celebrate this special day in church.
