message from the headteacherToday, many of the children had their first 'go' on the new wooden play equipment. By the looks upon their faces, they really enjoyed it!

Thank you to the PTA and all of their efforts into turning this dream into reality! Please support the PTA by purchasing your 'Beats n Eats' tickets on sale at the beginning and end of each day this week. Thank you
Year 1 SC
A huge welcome to all our new Y1 parents and children!

We have had a very successful first week in KS1 with all children showing us their kindness, enthusiasm, independence and willing to learn- what a wonderful first few days.

On the 18th September, beginning at 5.30pm and expecting to last approximately 45 mins to 1 hr, we will be hosting a Curriculum Meeting. During this time we would like to introduce ourselves, give you important information relating to organisation and routines in KS1 and also an overview of our curriculum and end of year expectations. We hope to see many of you there!

Thank you for all your continued support,

Miss Cooney and Mrs Wood

Learning Goals
In Year 1, the children participate in daily Numeracy, Phonics and Literacy lessons and the children begin to take more responsibility for their own learning, working independently and in groups. In our afternoon sessions, much of our learning takes place through creative activities and planned play opportunities. As the year progresses, the children will begin working in a more and more structured way, in preparation for Yr 2. We try hard to ensure the move from Reception into Key Stage 1 is as smooth as possible.

Later in the year, the children will take part in a Phonics Screening Check. It is very important that school and home work closely together to support your child with their early reading skills. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and help them to learn their spellings each week. A pack of sound cards have been sent home with your child. Please use these cards on a regular basis and help your child look out for these sounds when they are reading and encourage them to use them in their writing (children may attempt to spell some VERY DIFFICULT words and should use their sounds as a staring point i.e. 'j-igh-n-or-m-a-s' instead of 'ginormous', 'b-i-y-oo-t-i-f-u-ll' instead of 'beautiful'. At this stage in your child's learning, these spelling attempts are perfectly acceptable and you do not need to correct all of their efforts. Your child will learn alternative spellings for such words as the year progresses). To be in the best position possible, when taking the Phonics Screening Test, your child will need to recognise each sound quickly and confidently so regular reinforcment at home will prove invaluable. If you have any questions about the Phonics Screening Check, please speak with me at any time.


Homework
One piece of Literacy, Numeracy or Topic homework will be set each week and this will be stuck in your child’s homework book which comes home each Friday. Your child’s homework will relate to work we have been, or will be doing in class at that time. It is intended to consolidate the weeks learning, or prepare your child for the weeks learning ahead. Homework books will then be collected every Wednesday and the new homework will be sent home on the Friday. Spellings will also be sent home each week. These will be tested on Friday.
