Welcome to Year 1!

Miss Latham and I (Miss Jiwa-Walji) would like to welcome you to our class page. Here you will find some useful information about Year 1.  



 

Communication and Resources

The children will be given their new login information for active learn when they receive their reading diaries. Active learn will contain maths, grammar and spelling games as well as e-books from guided reading sessions, whole class texts and phonics bug books. Each time the children complete an activity or read a book on active learn a report is sent to me so I can see how they are getting on.

 

For daily updates and reminders about what is happening in Year 1, please join 'Class Story'. This is a fantastic tool that allows you to see when your child receives a class Dojo point. If you haven't already, please see me for our class code.

 

 

Reading

Please try and read with your child at least 3 times a week and sign their diary to show that they have read. In year 1 we try to encourage independence, so children will be changing their own books in our school library. If you notice that they bring the same book home on more than one occasion, please let us know and we will change it for you.

 

The children will take part in a guided reading session once a week. You will find a stamp in their books to show when this has taken place. If the children use an e-book, it will be allocated to them following the session. They can then share this book with you at home and answer the 'bug' questions. The 'bug' questions send a report back to me so I can see how they have done. 



Phonics and Spelling

Phonics is taught through our 'Phonics Bug' scheme, following each session the children will receive books in their Active Learn accounts containing the sound learned that day. 

 

In the first part of the year we will be revisiting sounds and embedding skills learned in Reception so phonics books will not be in children's bags just yet.

 Children will be given spelling resources to help them learn their weekly spelling lists. The spelling lists will be given out on Wednesdays and the children will complete their spelling tests on the following Monday. This will allow you to see how they are doing each week. 

 

 

     
      

 PE

PE will take place every Monday and Tuesday. Everybody will need to have a full PE kits in school at all times. Moulton PE kit includes: White shorts, blue t-shirt, black indoor pumps, outdoor sports shoes.

This year our Tuesday session of PE will be lead by our sports teacher Mr Townsend.

 

Maths

You can keep up to date with the maths in Year 1 on our class Dojo page. At the end of the week, where appropriate, the children will be allocated a maths game on active learn to consolidate their learning from the week.

 
You can keep up to date with our English lessons by following our class Dojo page. In addition to the English lessons, children also take part in Grammar, spelling, phonics and reading sessions. English is also taught through other curriculum areas. Where possible, class texts, grammar games, spelling games and guided reading books will be allocated through Active Learn following the introduction session.
