Welcome to Year 1
Welcome to Class 4. We are a Year 1 class that will be working very hard throughout the year. Every morning we start with a phonics lesson. This will help prepare us for the Phonic Screening that all Year 1 children will complete in June. To support us with the transition from Early Years to Key Stage 1, our mornings consist of English and Maths as well as access to continuous provision, which links to Year 1 National Curriculum outcomes. Our English lessons will include SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar). Foundation topics are covered in afternoons; Continuous Provision will also be accessible during the afternoon.

Homework is given out on Thursdays. It must be returned no later than the following Tuesday. Google Classroom will be used regularly, so please help your children access their emails and Classroom at home.
Children are asked to bring reading books into school every day. Children who bring in reading books everyday will have more opportunities to read in school and change their books.
Children will also have access to online reading resources on Oxford Reading Buddies and Bug Club. Log in details will be emailed to all children and also sent out in children's homework books.
