Welcome to Year 1's class page

Here you will find information about the curriculum, parent workshops and exciting learning your children are experiencing. You will also find a copy of the timetable and topic web attached to this page which is updated regularly. 


This term, our class Christian Value is Wisdom.
 

 

Routines 

PE

The children will have PE every Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for these sessions. They will need a white t-shirt, a pair of navy blue shorts and some black school pumps. 

Reading

Reading is such an important factor in enhancing your child's learning and development. Therefore, we hope that you can join us in helping your child to develop a love for reading! We would appreciate it if you could read with your child at least three times a week. Your child can read their own books as well as their school reading books and also accessing 'Bug Club'. We love hearing all about their favourite stories and sharing them with the class! Please write in their diary how they have got on with the book. Once we can see in their diary that they have read it twice, they can change their book.

Homework

Homework will be set weekly - 1 x Maths or Writing and 1 x Phonics. This will benefit your child's learning inside the classroom such as sentence formation, letter formation, phonics or times table work. We will also send a half termly topic homework - please send photos / videos etc on Class Dojo. 

 Handwriting

At Hindley Green Community Primary School we have a cursive handwriting policy and so your children will learn to write in this style. We would really love it if you could encourage your child to further develop their handwriting when doing any work at home. There is a large range of resources and apps available online for them to practice. However, if you have any questions or would like any resources please feel free to come and ask. 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via class dojo. 

Thanks for for your continued support and I am really looking forward to sharing some special learning moments with you all.

 

Our topic for this half term is called 'Walking on the Moon'. Take a look below at all of the fantastic learning opportunities we will have throughout this half term.

This is an example screening from 2018.  The past mark on the test was 32. Please note this may change depending on the year the test is taken.

For additional phonics support at home: you can read with your child, sounding out words they are unsure of and discussing the meaning of unfamiliar words. You can access previous screening tests from the GOV website. Also https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/freeIndex.htm has free game resources the children are used to playing in school. 

 

By the end of Year 1, children are expected to be able to read and write these tricky words. Please practise these as much as possible at home. Thank you.
