Please feel free to come in with any queries and concerns to speak to a member of staff.
In Year One we encourage a love of learning! If there is any learning that the children had completed at home then please send it in. We would love to see it!
In Year One we spend lots of time learning how to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. We work together learning how to build strong relationships which help us to support each other throughout the year. Our class is a positive learning environment, where everyone has a voice, and children are encouraged to use their voice positively to express their emotions. We strive to ensure that we learn, grow and achieve together, through God's love.
What an amazing start to the year!
We have learnt so much in the last half term and I am sure that this half term will be just as exciting. Our theme is 'Fire!' We held a planning meeting and the children came up with some amazing ideas. I have collated these ideas into a leaflet and attached it so you can see what we are up to !
This is the long term plan of what your child will be learning in Year 1.
Reading and Phonics
At St. Stephen's we teach reading using the Oxford Reading scheme and Phonics Bug. In guided reading we use the Big Cats scheme.
We teach daily phonics sessions based on the Letters and Sound scheme. Children will bring their reading book and record home every night. Regular reading and discussion about what they are reading is really important. Reading to your child and talking to them about stories and books is also extremely beneficial.
Please feel free to comment in their reading records as it is an ideal way of communicating with school.
Every week the children will be set home learning tasks in their home learning diary It will normally consist of writing, maths and phonics. Please return on a Thursday and then new learning will be sent home on the Friday. I am sure that your children are going to WOW you with their amazing knowledge.
Alongside this, the children will also be sent home with reading books. We ask you to read at home with your child and share their book with them. Talk to your child about the story and their opinions.
Thank you so much for your support, I am sure that both you and your child will benefit greatly from this special time together.
