Welcome to Class 1M.
Our teacher is Mrs Metcalfe. We also have a trainee teacher, Mrs Hosker and our learning support assistant is Mrs Bird.
We always try our best and have lots fun while we learn in Year 1!
We would recommend that you leave your child's PE bag in school until half term.
PE is on a Wednesday so please ensure your child has full kit including red t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps. Ensure all of your child's PE kit and school uniform are clearly named.
We don't have a set day to change reading books. Please can your child bring their book bag to school everyday. Thank you. It is important that you read with your child when they bring home a new book. Please check for any letters that may have been placed in their book bag.
Now that the children are in year 1 they will have a weekly spelling test on a Wednesday. They will bring home their spellings to practice the week before so please support your child with them. We encourage the children to 'do their best' and they are very excited to see how many they have spelled correctly each week.
The Spelling Shed and Maths Shed
Our school has signed up to 'The Spelling Shed'. Your child has taken home a password which will enable them to log onto the site. The spellings for the week will be on there for the children to learn in a fun way. There will also be a score board. Let's make our class be the top spellers in the school.
In Year 1 we teach phonics daily. Phonics is the learning and application of the letters and sounds children need in order to read and write. Phonics is split into phases based on children's development. Links to phonics games can be found at the bottom of the page. Please play these games with your child.
Children can bring in a water (and only water) in a named bottle so if they get thirsty they have access to a drink throughout the day.
Every half term, a homework menu will be given out with a selection of tasks to be completed, across all areas of the curriculum. It is your choice how many you complete, however you must do at least one and hand it in by the end of the half term. Your completed work will be celebrated.
Upcoming dates this half term:
6th January 2020 return to school
9th January 2020 flu spray
14th February 2020 half term
Our first half term in 1M will be exciting as we will be getting to know our new teachers, areas of the classroom and how we learn in year 1.
We will be learning about the different ways we can make numbers, use number lines and have even practice how to spell numbers to 10!
Our first English topic is Alliteration in poems. We will then look at the Percy the Park Keeper story, After the storm. We will learn a shortened version of the story, create actions for it and answer questions about it. We will re-write it changing it from an Autumn setting to a winter setting.
Our first topic will be 'Seasons'. We will learn about how the weather and trees change throughout the year.
