Year 1

Welcome to Year 1
Welcome to the Spring Term 2022!   I hope that you all have had a lovely winter holiday and are ready for another great term of leaning and fun in Year 1!  Keep reading for key information about Year 1. 
Class Teacher: Mrs Nunn
Class Teaching Assistant: Miss Kennedy
We are also very lucky to have Mrs Glenn, Mrs Dickson and Mrs West (RWI) as part of the KS1 team.
Mr Twynam teaches in Year 1 on a Tuesday afternoon with a focus on science whilst Mrs Nunn has her time out of the classroom to plan exciting learning opportunities to help us grow as learners. 
PE days: Monday and Wednesday.  No need for PE kit, just bring trainers/ wear them to school..

Reading books are changed on Fridays.  Children will have 3 books in their book bags. Two phonics RWI books that they are expected to read at least three times for them to be fluent and are able to answer comprehension questions about what they have read.

The third book is a 'Reading for Pleasure'  book which will be taken home and is used to share with someone in  the family who will model reading aloud.  The children are not expected to be able to read this book independently but will recognise familiar words and will be able to their RWI strategies to read words!  After the third or fourth time of reading (or even tenth!) the book your child might be able to join in with the repetitive parts 

If you have any questions, my door is always open or you can email using the following address... For urgent messages, please contact the school office.

Year 1 is a very important year for your child learning to read and write.
Please support your child by reading and playing fun, educational games at home.

SpringTerm 2022
Our Topic this term is: Great Creations!
We will be finding out about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his achievements - especially the Royal Albert Bridge.  We will become engineers ourselves and will be constructing many bridge like structures; challenging ourselves to see who can build the strongest bridge or the tallest bridge etc...
We will be locating Plymouth, Bristol and London on a map (linked to Brunel's achievements) and learn about what a county is.  We will be learning about creation stories in RE and learning about ourselves in Science as one of the creations creations ever made!  Keep an eye on the weekly newsletter for updates in our learning.
