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!
We hope you and your children are all refreshed and ready for a busy and exciting term in 2017.
Our topic this half term is entitled 'Ourselves!'
We are going to be exploring our bodies, looking at our local area and people who help us. Following our planning meeting on Transition Day, the children have decided that they want to do lots of Art, talk to experts to find out about our local area and write a story about animals.
Attached is this half term's curriculum overview so feel free to have a look and see what else we will be up to in this first half term of Year One.
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.
