Monday morning is when we collect any dinner money and snack money. At morning break we can have toast, this is 50p each week.
Each week we have some homework to do. This is usually a piece of maths, based on the work we have done in class that week; and a piece of phonics homework. We have to practise the spellings and sometimes write sentences.
Homework needs to be handed in by Wednesday.
Reading is so important in Year 1, we would love it if you could try to read at home at least 3 times a week. Children can read their own books from home too. Just let us know you have read at home by writing in your child's planner.
We have a cursive handwriting policy and children learn to write in this style. There are lots of practise sheets online for cursive handwriting, but if you can not find them, please ask a Year 1 member of staff.
A key target for year 1 children is to be able to count forwards and backwards to 100 from any given number, so lots of counting practise at home. Also children need to be able to write the numbers 1-20 as words.
Our current topic is "What should I wear?"
Phonics screening check
By the end of Year 1, children are expected to be able to read and write these tricky words. Please practise these as much as possible at home. Thank you.
Your child will recieve an independent log in, the password for all children is YEAR1 and the school code is HGCP. If you require another copy of your log-in please let me know. Also explore active learn for Abacus (maths) and phonics bug. Have fun!
