Year 1

In Year 1, our teacher is Miss Fatima and Ms Bering is our part-time Higher Level Teaching Assistant.

Each day the children are expected to bring in their book bag which contains their reading record and reading book. Please also send in daily a labelled water bottle.

Reading Books

We follow the Collins Big Cat reading scheme and supplement that with Oxford Reading Tree books.  Children will be heard read from their reading book at least once each week as well as take part in guided reading within the class where they will read a variety of different texts.

Homework

Homework comprises of hearing your child read every day and practicing spellings.

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and will be tested the following Thursday.

Any other homework will be set at a personal level to reflect each child’s individual needs.
