Reading

Please try to read daily for 10 – 15 minutes. This will help your child to apply their phonic knowledge to decoding and blending sounds to read words.
If you log in to your Google Classroom account, you will find your log in details for Oxford Owl. On here you will find many reading books.
The Read Write Inc books are levelled so if your child is working on Set 1 sounds, access the sound blending books up to purple and for those children working on Set 2 sounds, pink books onwards. There are many other books you can access too.
If you need any advice or you are unsure of levels please do not hesitate to ask and we can tell you were to begin.

Happy reading everyone!

Wellbeing

The following document has lots of fantastic ideas for Brain Breaks. They are easy to use at home although they mention being used in the classroom. It is just as important at home as it is in school for children take breaks away from their work to recharge their batteries. They are fun and easy short activities, to keep the children smiling.

Have fun!

About us

 

Prayers

In Class 3 we say our prayers in the morning, before lunch and before we go home.  We also say the prayers, ‘Hail Mary’ and ‘Our Father’. 

 
 

Snack and Water

Your child can bring in water daily in a reusable bottle with a sports cap top.  We are a healthy school so we do encourage water only.

In key stage one, children are provided with a daily snack of fresh fruit.

 

School lunches

In key stage one, children are eligible for free school meals.  We are currently providing sandwiches for the children throughout the week. On Fridays fish and chips are also on the menu. 

 

PE 

Our PE day is Wednesday. On PE days the children can come to school dressed in their PE kits ready for their lesson.

Kits to be worn to school:

  • Yellow T shirt
  • Royal Blue shorts
  • Jumper/cardigan
  • Black pumps

Children can wear black joggers worn over their PE kit on cold days.

 

Self-help skills.

Self – help skills are very important in Year 1. 

 

Please help your child to:-

  • dress themselves
  • fasten buttons and zips
  • use a knife and fork to eat their food
  • practise cutting skills
  • put their shoes on
  • tie shoe laces
  • turn an inside out item of clothing the right way
  • open a packet and peel a banana/tangerine etc.
  • put things in their school bag themselves

 

All of these activities build fine motor skills and organisation skills which are very important for your child’s development.  It takes time and patience but the hard work is well worth it to build their independence.

 

Handwriting

You will find below an example of our school’s handwriting style. Please encourage your child to practice their handwriting, and to start and end the formation of each letter in the correct place. 

Cursive Handwriting

 

 

Reading/Spellings

Throughout this year we will be learning to read and write the following words. We will be beginning with Year 1 Common exception words and then as the year progresses some children will be able to move on to the Year 2 words. 

Year 1 and 2 CEW

 

 

Phonics 

Phonics is a very important part of Year 1. As we go through the year your child will be learning Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3 sounds to help them with their reading. Below you will find all of the sounds your child needs to learn, as well as how to pronounce them. 

Phonics Sounds: Set 1, 2 and 3

As well as learning these sounds, our main aim is for your child to enjoy listening to and talking about stories. 

When reading with/to your child you could: 

  • get them to tell you what is happening in the story,
  • ask them questions about the story,
  • talk about the characters, 
  • talk about what happens next,
  • ask them to retell the story,
  • discuss with them what part of the book they liked best.

Your help with this is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to working with you to help your child’s reading develop. 

 

Homework and Home reading

 

Homework will be given out every week.

Home readers will be changed each week. Your child will need to bring their book back to school every day so that it can be changed when your child has completed the book in school.

It would be helpful for you to write a comment.
