When Buzz Lightyear came to visit the children in Year 1

The children received a very special visit from Buzz Lightyear. The children had the opportunity to ask him some questions that they had prepared for him in the week and listened very carefully to his answers.

Attendance:  Soft start in the mornings between 8.45 – 8.55 – Children to come straight into class. End of day 3.15pm

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. 

Reading books -The children will receive 1 home reading book (decodable) 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.. 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.EThe children will need to come to school dressed their P.E kit on their P.E days. There will therefore be no need for P.E bags in school.  

1O  – Tuesday and Friday

1M – Monday and Tuesday
