Welcome to Year One

This half term we are enjoying the story of 

The Jolly Postman

and doing lots of work associated with the various Fairy Tale and Nursery Rhyme characters within the book.




Please keep checking to see what fun things we have been doing. 


Children in Year One learn to read and write using phonics. The sound mats in the file section are a great resource to support your child with reading and writing at home.

Phonics screening check example



Reading is a priority.  Your child will bring home a phonics based book either on a Monday or a Tuesday (depending on their group).  They are expected to read this book for 2 nights.  They will then receive a different school scheme reading book on a Wednesday or Thursday, which may not necessarily be phonics based.  Again, they will keep this book for 2 nights.

On a Friday each child will choose a book from our class library to share at home with their family.  This is a 'Reading For Pleasure' book.  Your child may or may not be able to access some of the words in their chosen book; either is perfectly fine.  The emphasis is on sharing and enjoying a book of their choice.

Additional homework is set every week. Your child will receive one piece of either Maths or English every Friday which is to be returned by the following Wednesday.
