Reading books are to be brought in to school daily and are changed when parents have signed the child's reading journal.
Homework Books are to be handed in on Mondays. The homework will be checked and a total of points earned will be recorded. Children will receive Dojo's for completed homework.
Spellings and reading- Reading Rockets!
Children will bring home a 'Book Bag Book' and a decodable reading book to share with an adult. Please visit the Read Write Inc section on our class pages for more information. There will be suggested activities to do with your child.
For every book your child completes at home, their Reading Rocket will move up the chart, and for every five books changed, your child will be given a certificate. Please support your child with this.

Welcome to Year One.....we are Miss Richards (1P) and Mrs Marriott (1G). We are very excited to be part of the Year One learning Journey with your child!
The work outlines on our class pages will be updated each half term and this will inform you about what your child will be learning in school. A reading book will be sent home regularly for you to support and enjoy the reading experience with your child and we, as class teachers, will hear your child read often during Guided Reading and Read Write Inc sessions within the school day.
Read Write Inc, Maths and Guided Reading takes place daily. Year One will be taught Science once a week and Topic twice a week. They are taught handwriting daily. The children are learning to join their writing.
PE is taught by specialist teachers. They will be taught PE on a Monday - Circuit Training and Friday - athletics. We will visit the Library to change books on a Thursday.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us on our class e-mails and we will be more than happy to support you.
Summer Term Learning.
In Maths this term, children will be learning about place Value within 50, for the first two weeks. This will also involve applying our calculation skills to number bonds and fact families. We will then be moving on to place value within 100, counting numbers forwards and back within 100, counting numbers in a sequence, identifying one more than and one less than (within 100), one to one correspondence, ordinal numbers and placing numbers on a number line. Towards the end of the Summer Term, we will move on to multiplication and division, first counting in 2s, 5s and 10s then sharing into groups. Fractions will involve finding half and a quarter of a shape then moving onto an amount. The children will be challenged with reading numbers to twenty in words and learning to write them. We will also be practising writing the days of the week and knowing the months of the year.
This terms Topic is called 'School Days', which will focus on the Victorians. This project teaches children about the physical and human characteristics of the Victorian era, including a detailed exploration of the rich and poor children, the difference between the Victorian landscape and our current in Potters green. Along side their Topic, the children will be getting busy sketching and comparing art for their companion project 'Street View'.
During RSHE, the children will be talking about keeping themselves safe and healthy.
During Music, the children are learning how to follow a beat and accompany a piece of music with an instrument in time with the pulse.
During Computing, the children will be using the platform Purple Mash to learn how to use software to create an 'E-Book' and using online online software for 'Coding.' They will continue to learn how to open and create a document and save it.
During Science, the children will be learning about 'Animals including humans'. They will be investigating groups of animals and the food that they eat and understanding how to care for a pet.
Children will have Guided Reading x 4 a week. They will access a text and learn how to predict, discuss, infer and retrieve evidence from the text when answering questions.
Children will have daily Phonics and they will learn how to recognise graphemes that represent different phonemes and apply them when reading and spelling.
