Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!  We are really looking forward to a great Autumn term. The teacher in 1S will be Ms Shahid.  The staff working in 1M will be Ms Tariq (class teacher) and Ms Riaz (teaching assistant).  Ms Kulpa, Ms Kellam and Ms Walsh will also be supporting the children in Year 1.

Things to Know

PE will be on a Tuesday for both classes. Children will need a PE kit  that can be left in class over the half term.  The kit should include a white t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms, a black tracksuit top, white socks and black trainers. Please make sure all of the kit is clearly labelled with your child's name. 

Please bring your book bag (with books and diary) every day. Your teacher will read with you and you will have a weekly book changing day or more often if required. Parents, please use the diary to tell us how your child reads at home, words they struggled with and if you feel the level of the book was not appropriate.

Part 1

In Year 1, homework is project based. We provide several ideas for projects for your child to complete over the half term with a celebration date in the last week of the half term. The aim of the homework is for you and your child to share their learning together and to enjoy their learning.

Part 2

Homework will be given every Friday and should be returend on the following Wednesday.  Homework will involve a spelling activity and a maths activity linked to the weeks learning. We understand that some children find homework tricky so we do endeavour to make the weekly tasks quick and fun.

Please don’t hesitate to speak to your class teacher if you have any further questions.
