WELCOME BACK 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.
Our overall theme this term is called Be the hero of your own story! We will be finding out all about storybook heroes such as Traction Man, Superworm and Michael Recycle.
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.
Holidays and Holydays
Where we will explore why holidays are special to us and consider the importance of Holydays in the church calendar.
Where we will be learning to make good choices regarding looking after our world and how we treat God’s creatures.
Where we will question ‘who is our neighbour?’ and think about our neighbours around the world, including all of the animals and insects.
