Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 2023/24!

We now have a new whole school handwriting scheme called Letter Join. You have been sent the log-in details to access this fantastic resource at home. Perhaps children could learn how to write their name in cursive font at home? Remember, we do not join in Year 1, but we do put the leads into and out of each letter. Log in to Letter Join for many examples of this.

Our Internet Safety Day was lots of fun and a really important day of learning about how to keep safe online. We spent time looking at Hanni and the Magic Window and what to do if something on the internet upsets you.

It has been necessary to move our History Day. The new date is Wednesday 13th March, with the new topic of 'History of Toys'. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon.

Useful Information

  • PE Days - Monday and Wednesday - Please have a fully named kit in school on these days.
  • Spelling test - Monday
  • Homework handed in - Friday - One activity from the matrix to be handed in each Friday.
  • Reading Records - Please ensure they are in school every day and signed each Friday. We will sign them each Friday. If you have any urgent messages for the day, please write them in the homework diary (reminding your child to give us the diary directly that morning), but please also tell the member of staff at the gate if possible. This should avoid missed messages. You can also email the office who will pass messages on to us- this is especially important for appointments.
