Year 1 2018 - 2019

Ms Sproston

Welcome to Year 1

This term our class text will be The Jolly Christmas Postman By Janet & Allan Ahlberg. 

Our English, Maths and Topic will all link to our class text as we learn, not just about the story, but about Christmas and Advent as a general topic. Please take a look at our Autumn One curriculum plan to find out all about what we will be learning this term. 


Each week the children will be issued with spellings with a pattern to practice and learn. These will go out in their homwork books with space underneath for the children to write three sentences containing a selection of these words. 

Children will also be allocated Maths homework online at  . Here you can also run through the lesson and practice your skills in some fun games. 


In order to embed blending and segmenting phonics knowledge, children should be reading at home every night. All children will be send home with a school reading book from their coloured level however our online system is a fantastic way of accessing many more books and contains great tasks and discussion opportunities which come with each text. 


PE kits should be in school in order for children to participate in PE on Wednesday afternoons alongside Year 2 and Friday mornings. 


Children in Year 1 are constantly learning and exploring. We like to take photos in year one and document our experiences. Please follow us on twitter @HolySpiritWA7 to keep up to date with our posts.
