Controlled Primary School

Year 1

Welcome to Year One

2018-2019

Miss Ingham and Mrs Madden would like to welcome you to our Year One page and congratulate the children on making such a smooth transition from Reception into Year 1. The children have settled into their classes and new routines really well and we are so pleased to see their enthusiasm for learning and their kind and helpful attitudes. 

 

On this class page, you will be able to keep up to date with the exciting things we are doing. 

Christian Value

FRIENDSHIP

 

Our class christian value is friendship. Throughout year one, we focus upon how to be a good friend and the importance of good friends in our lives. Together we understand that we should listen to our friends, play kindly with them and help them when they need us.

Key Information

 

PE - Our PE day is TUESDAY. Please ensure your child has a full, labelled PE kit for this day.

 

Home reading - Should be done every night if possible.  Reading each night with your child makes a massive difference to their progress but also gives them confidence and a love of reading.

 

Please ensure that your child's reading bag, reading book and home school diary are in school every day.

 

Children may change their reading books as often as they wish, as long as an adult has signed to say the book has been completed. Please remind your child to put their reading diary and book in the basket in the classroom.

 

Water Bottles - Your child may bring a bottle of water to school to drink throughout the day. We encourage them to drink water frequently.

 

 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to come and see us.

 

Thank you for your support,

Miss Ingham and Mrs Madden

P.E.

 

We do PE on a Monday. Please could you ensure that all clothing is clearly named, as items do tend to get lost!

Some children are still struggling to change for PE so please could I ask that they practise dressing and undressing themselves at home. Thank you.

Pupils should be able to recognise a variety of features from a range of texts. In writing they should be able to punctuate mostly accurately, using a range of punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks and full stops

Pupils learn a range of calculation strategies and apply them to problem-solving, using and applying their skills. They understand tens and units and use their knowledge to calculate the addition and subtraction of two digit numbers. It is important for them to be able to count confidently both forwards and backwards. Please encourage them to do this at home.
