Year 1

Welcome to the final half term of the school year.  

We have loved seeing all the children grow in confidence over the past year and every day they continue to amaze us with all their fabulous attitudes and efforts in all their learning. 

Our final topic of this year is 'Nature Detectives', we will be out and about in our local environment as much as possible, learning about and exploring Sutton In Craven.  Everyday, we start our morning with our phonics session followed by our Wake Up Shake Up. Before playtime we have our English session then after play move onto topic learning. After lunch we start the afternoon with maths then topic learning again. We finish the day with some provision time, where children choose their learning from the different areas, e.g writing area, arts and craft area, construction area, maths area etc.  

P.E continues to be on a Wednesday and Friday but P.E. bags should be in school at all times. Thank you for taking the time to label your child’s belongings this is much appreciated. We aim to get outside as much as possible for these sessions. 

In year one, we change reading books every Thursday but please encourage your child to bring their reading books and learning journals into school every day. Aim to listen to your child read every day but also remember to share stories with them too, where you are reading to your child. This way they are hearing fabulous texts as well as advancing their vocabulary.

Although currently the library is ‘closed’  to children your child will still have the opportunity to take home a library book that will be chosen from a selection of books which are in the classroom. We are asking that they are taken home on a Friday and only brought back to school the following Friday, when they will have chance to change their book.

Home learning will be sent out on a Friday via Google Classroom. 

The Y1 team would like to thank you for your continued support.

Miss Baldwin, Miss Day, Mrs Broughton and Mrs Howes
