Welcome to Year 1's page!
Take a Walk on the Wild Side!

We will also be looking at all the different patterns on different animals fur/skin.
Phonics Screening Test
We will now begin to prepare for the Phonics Screening Test in Year 1.
Although the Government has cancelled the Phonics Screening Test, we will still be using this method to assess the children with their Phonics knowledge in June as this will help the Year 1 and Year 2 teachers to plan and prepare appropriate Phonics lessons for the rest of this academic year and for next year.
Your child will come home talking about alien and real words, as well as sound buttons.
Within school during the upcoming months before the test your child will be taking part in lots of extra phonics activities. I will be carrying out past papers with your child which will allow me to address any gaps your child has with their phonological awareness.
Extra phonics home-work will also be sent home.
Phonics play has some fantastic phonics games which will help your child with their screening test.
Our favourites in class are Obb and Bob (Picnic on Pluto) and buried treasure.
The test will take place w/c Monday 7 June 2021.
P.E is on Mondays and Thursdays.
Please can your child come into school wearing their P.E kits on these days.
Please can I remind you that P.E kits are:
Black or navy joggers
Black or Navy zip up/hooded jacket.
(Please help your child to learn how to tie their laces at home)
