Hello and welcome to 1S' class page.
Your teacher is Miss Shaw.
Our teaching assistants in Year 1 this year are Mrs Begum and Mrs Holt!
We hope you enjoy taking a look at our brilliant page of learning.
** At the moment, reading books will not be sent out to your child. Instead, your child needs to log onto Reading Eggs each night for at least 15 minutes. Your child will be set tasks to complete. **
Your child will receive a phonetically decodable book and a story book to read for pleasure. Please sign reading diaries regularly explains how your child has found their reading practise.
You are welcome to use your own home reading books to test your child's comprehension skills.
If your child is finding a story easy, please ask them lots of comprehension questions to ensure they understand the book they are reading. Questions can include:
In class, your child is being taught Phase 2, 3, 4 & 5 Phonics. This is to make up for the time they missed due to lockdown. Usually in Year 1, we only teach Phase 5 for most of the year. We would appreciate any extra phonics practice that your child can do at home. At the moment, we are focusing on Phase 2 & Phase 3.
Your child will take a Phonics Screening Check in June 2021. The check consists of 40 real and pseudo (alien) words and it is to test your child's blending skills. Please practice reading the sound mats below as much as possible. Whilst your child is reading their home school reading book, you can help them to break down the sounds and blend the word together to read.
We follow Letters and Sounds. In Year 1 we focus on Phase 4 and Phase 5. Some children receive additional Phase 2 and Phase 3 intervention. Here is the link to the document we follow:
There are also fantastic resources to access on this website too:
Homework & Spellings:
** At the moment, homework is online. Your child needs to log on to Mathletics and Reading Eggs daily and spend 15 minutes on each **
Homework will be sent out on a Friday each week. There will be spellings and tasks set. Book will be marked on a Tuesday. Additional homework sheets will be sent out too.
Spellings will be sent on a Friday. These spellings will be bespoke to your child's needs. In Year 1 children will receive tricky word, high frequency words or spelling patterns.
This half term, P.E is on a Monday afternoon & a Friday afternoon. At the moment, your child just needs a change of shoes.
Your child needs to keep their P.E kit in a clearly labelled P.E bag in school every day.
We will send it home at the end of each half term.
They will need:
White t-shirt, black shorts/pants/leggings and a pair of black P.E pumps.
Book Bags & Uniform:
Please make sure your child brings a book bag to school everyday. It will help them to carry their homework and reading books. Children will be told to put any important letters or notices inside their book bags so please make sure you check them regularly.
Please ensure that your child's uniform is clearly labelled to avoid loss of belongings. We encourage children to put jumpers in their trays to keep them safe. When the weather is bad, make sure your child has a waterproof coat with a hood and suitable footwear.
Here are things you can practice at home.
