Elm Class 2023 - 2024
Year 1 Teacher
Welcome to Year 1.
Our teaching team is Miss Jones and Mrs Crawshaw
Our PE day is Thursday please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school.
Please bring reading books into school everyday as we have lots of opportunities to listen to readers. Books will be changed on a Monday and a Friday.
If there is anything I can help with please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Miss Jones and Mrs Crawshaw.
I hope you have had a lovely break and are ready for a fun filled half term with lots of work to be done. We are approaching the phonics screening test quickly so please ensure you are doing lots of reading at home with your child to get them ready.
During this half term we will be focusing focusing on instruction writing. Please have a look at 'The Curriculum Overview' to learn all about the new things we will be learning about this half term.
Please have a look at the 'Spring 2 Homework Grid' below. We understand that family life is busy, therefore, it is not essential that all of these activities are completed but we do ask that your child aims to complete some of the activities to reinforce their learning across the curriculum.
Reading and Spellings
Reading at home is incredibly valuable, children who read frequently at home are more likely to obtain the necessary progress required in Year 1. If possible, we would suggest that you read with your child for 10 minutes each night.
Please read each book with your child and then encourage them to have a go at reading independently. Talking about the story with them and asking questions to develop comprehension skills can be extremely impactful in enhancing their English ability.
Spellings will be handed out every Thursday for a spelling test the following Thursday. It is extremely important that your child works hard to practise their spellings at home to ensure a good result in their spelling test.
If you would like your child to have milk, you will need to register them on the cool milk website and pay the required termly fee.
'Tapestry' is our secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments. Please continue to check Tapestry regularly to see all of the hard work your children have been getting up to throughout the day.
Please continue to use and check Bug Club regularly as stories appropriate to your child's ability will be allocated. These online story books will help your child meet their reading target, aiding them in improving their reading ability.
