Welcome to Year 1’s Wonderful Page!

The Learning Journey for this half term is..


Happy New Year!  – Lets hope this tear is a much brighter one for us all 🙂 We hope you had a restful break and managed to stay safe throughout.

Home learning will start on Tuesday 5th January – We will set homework via Purple Mash. You will receive a daily email outlining the work for the day with videos to watch and activities to complete. Please check these daily.  If you are unable to access the Purple Mash website or have miss placed the log in details, please contact the school office and I can send them out to you.

If your child does not have internet access or access to a device at home, please ensure you contact the school so we can see if there is a Chromebook available for you to use.

Home learning – Great Fire of London Project

Date set: Friday 11th December 2020

Next term, the children will be learning about the Great Fire of London. This is a great unit that will ignite their imagination. We would like the children to complete a project about The Great Fire of London. In their home learning books, there are ideas on how they can present this. They may choose one of the options  to complete with you or choose a project of their own as long as it is about fire!

Homework due in: Tuesday 12th January 2021

Please note: This is not to do over the Christmas break, the children have one week before the holidays and another after, before this is due in.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing the children’s projects!

Value Certificates

Well done to the following children for receiving a value certificate this week!

Self Isolation and Purple Mash If your child is having to self isolate from school because of potential symptoms, you will receive an email from their class teacher on Purple Mash.  We will send you PowerPoint Presentations for you to follow throughout week in English, Maths, Handwriting and Phonics. The work can be done in the exercise book we provided in the wallet. Feel free to attach a picture of your child’s work to an email and send it to your class teacher on Purple Mash. We are aware this is challenging as I know many parents are working from home but it’s important that the children continue to develop their skills in all areas of learning so that gaps are minimised.

All children should have received their Purple Mash logging in details. Please contact the office if you have misplaced this information.

Meet the Year 1 team 2020

Home Learning – Home learning in Year 1 is most effective when it’s a hands on approach. We believe the children learn best when given practical approaches to embed their learning. The children will receive weekly homework which will involve discussions around a topic or consolidation of teaching from the previous week. Children will receive their homework books on Friday. These will need to be back in school the following Tuesday. 

Reading books -The children will receive 2 home reading books and a book from the book corner each week. Reading is key in Year 1 and the children should be reading every evening for approximately 10 minutes. Once your child has read to you, please sign and date the reading record so we can keep track. The TA will change these weekly during the day. Please ensure the books are in their book bag daily. Some children will receive  ‘word boxes’ in their reading records. These are some extra words we would like the children to read as they cannot be sounded out and the children just need to know them. Once your child can read and recognise these words, they will move onto the next box.

P.E – The children will have their P.E lesson every Friday with Miss Hammond. The children will need to come to school dressed their P.E kit every Friday. There will therefore be no need for P.E bags in school.
