Welcome to Year One!

Outline Year 1

My name is Miss Foster and I teach Year One. In Year One we also have Carol and Rana helping us. Our topics are listed on the teaching and learning page, so please have a look and help your child at home with their learning.  Where possible most of our learning will be linked to this topic, making learning fun and memorable for the children.

It is really important that the children are reading to someone every night, this makes such a different to the children’s learning and progress so please ensure lots of reading is happening at home.

We have a spelling test every Friday ! A list of the whole years spelling words are here.

Book bags are changed Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Homework is due on a Thursday, so that it can be marked with the new homework ready to go home on Friday. 

Here are the high frequency words: Year1to2HighFrequencyWords - Please help your children practise these sight words, it will help with their reading and writing :)

Please ensure children have their PE kits every Monday (only for Autumn term while Year one does Tennis) Wednesday (the whole year round).
