Above is our regular class timetable for Y1N. Please note that 'Creative curriculum' includes subjects - Topic, art, DT, P.E, R.E, PSHE.
Each week children will receive a homework folder. This will contain phonics based spellings, a piece of Maths homework, a piece of English homework and times tables (2x, 5x, 10x) to practice. This folder is to be returned each week on Wednesday and homework will be sent out on Fridays.
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 "Horrible Histories"
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.
