Information for Parents

Reading

Reading books and records should be in school every day. When the book has been read twice (ideally once at home and once at school), they will be given a new book. If a child reads at home four times within a week and their reading record is filled in to reflect this, they will receive a sticker on a Friday.

Spelling

Class One spellings are taken from the statutory spelling list for Key Stage One. Tests will be on a Friday morning and new spellings will be given out on the same day, giving children a full week to practise words at home. Please note that as the year progresses, spelling sets that children have struggled with will be repeated.

Homework

Research homework is handed out every other Monday and is due in the following Friday. Children are provided with a title and can decide what work they want to produce linked to the given topic. The title will always be related to something that we have already covered in class or something that the children will already be familiar with e.g. Christmas, my home etc.

 

Here are some photos of activities in class, including Science Day and Friendship Day.

 

 

As part of our Polar Regions topic, we visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Friday 9th March and had an amazing time. It was a long journey but it was worth it just to see the polar bears! We watched them for a long time and learnt lots about them in our education session. A male lion roared at us and we got super close to the giraffes. We hope you like the photos, we took it in turns to take them on our class ipads.

 

 

Safety Week

We learnt lots about different types of safety. We discussed safety in the home and had to spot the hazards! We learnt about how we can stay safe around water and we created posters about 'Stranger Danger'. We know to find a safe stranger or safe building if we are ever in trouble. 

As well as this, we had a special speaker who came in to teach us all about internet safety and how we should keep personal information and our passwords to ourselves.

We have recently been to Todmorden Sports Centre to compete in the Todmorden Schools Year 1 Sporting Competition. We moved around in 3 groups and took part in running, jumping, throwing, catching and aiming activities. We had so much fun and we came first out of 7 schools!
