Message to Year 1

19th June

Dear Year 1,

Hello! Hope you are all okay?

We are just writing to tell you about our first week at school in our new ‘colour bubble’ and to provide you with some information about the next few weeks.   Our classrooms have been much busier now we have up to 10 children in them although it’s just not the same without you all.  We are missing you lots.

Next  week, you will receive a weekly email from us (if you have not been allocated a bubble).  These may be sent out on different days so do not panic if somebody receives an email before you; by the end of the week everybody will receive one!

You will be able to tell us any news you have (which we’re sure you must have lots to tell us!) ask us any questions and even send us some pictures of your work or any other exciting things you have been up to.

We can’t wait to hear from you all.

Lots of love

Y1 Team

DFE – Phonic Lessons

27th April

From Monday 27 April, online phonics lessons are available from Letters and Sounds for home and school.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/channels?view_as=public

These videos will be written and presented by phonics experts and funded by the Department for Education. The online lessons are designed to cover new phonics teaching that the children would have received over the summer term had they been in school.  Three sets of lessons will be available over the course of the morning.

10 am-  Phases 3 & 4 (Rec/Yr1)

10:30am – Phase 5 (Yr1)

11 am- A phase 2 recap (Rec)

A new lesson will be uploaded Monday to Friday at the times above during the summer term. There is also a guidance film for parents to explain the basics of Phonics and how parents can support their child is also available.

This would be a really useful website for children to access every day.

Thank you

Mrs Skinner, Mrs Coluccio, Mrs Golding and Mrs Duszczyk

Hopefully we will see you all soon.  Keep smiling and stay safe.

Pray for the World with Pope Francis

The month, in his monthly video, the Holy Father calls for us to pray for the world in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Let us all pray together for the sick, for the people who are suffering. We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas — we who are put to the test — and deliver us from every danger. O glorious and blessed Virgin. I thank all Christians, all the men and women of good will who pray at this moment, in unison, whichever religious tradition they belong to.”

On Friday 27 March at 5pm UK time (6pm Rome), the Pope will pray on the steps of St Peter’s basilica. Although the square will be empty, there will be a period of Adoration and readings from Scripture. At the end of the service, the Holy Father will impart his Urbi et Orbi blessing and will offer a Plenary indulgence for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Education City

21st February

Dear Parents,

We would like to inform you that the homework section of Education City had been updated to review the maths and phonics your child completed in Spring 1. This is not compulsory homework just an option for you and your child to revisit their learning in a fun way.

If you cannot access Education City please  speak to the class teacher.

Thank you, Year 1 Staff

 

Gruffalo Day

Thursday 6th February

On Friday 20th March, Year 1 will be having a ‘Gruffalo Day’. We will start reading the book after the half term and will finish the unit of work with a ‘Gruffalo Day’. On this day, the children will be provided with lots of fun educational activities relating to the book.

As part of this day, we think it would be great if your child could come to school dressed as one of the characters from the book. Children can choose from a fox, an owl, a snake, a mouse and of course the Gruffalo.

Thank you for your continued support. We will look forward to seeing your child in their outfit. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask the class teacher.

Spellings

Please note the format for spellings has changed this term. The children are now required to read the top half of the sheet and write sentences using the words in the bottom half of the sheet. The spelling test will focus on the words on the bottom half of the sheet only. We will also be checking that children can read the words in the top half. Further details can be found in your child’s spelling book.

Thank you for your continued support.

On Line System Trial

Dear Parents

Thank you to everyone who participated in our online Sims (Edulink) trial. Unfortunately, due to the restrictions of the system and the low uptake, we have decided not to purchase this system and you will no longer be able to access it. We do appreciate the fact that some parents took time out to use the system, which has helped us make our decision.

Year 1 NumBots

Last week KS1 launched the use of ‘NumBots’; a mathematical software program linked to TT Rockstars which KS2 currently use. The program can be downloaded as an app or used on the internet and it is compatible with both PCs and Tablets. The program can be accessed from home using the log in details which your child has received. NumBots has already been introduced to the pupils and they will have regular access in school, however it maybe nice for families to spend some time together understand how the story of the game progresses and the mathematical challenges involved.

Thank you for your continued support.
