Welcome to Year 1
Here is you where can find everything that you need to know about year one and have a look at what we have been learning.
Who are we?
My name is Mrs Levitt and I am the year one teacher. Mrs Butterfield and Mrs Rawson are the teaching assistants in our class.
Homework is set every Friday and is due in the following Thursday. Your child will be sent home with a list of spellings relating to what we have been learning in phonics, and our current spelling rule. Please encourage your child to practice them at home. The other piece of homework will have either a Maths or English focus.
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. For health and safety reasons your child should not wear jewellery on these days, especially earrings. They must have appropriate footwear too, either trainers or pumps.
Please spend time reading with your child every day.
We love to read and spend time reading to and listening to your children read in school every day. Your child’s Read, Write, Inc. reading book is specifically linked to the phonics that they are currently learning in school. Please make sure that they come to school each day with their reading book and record. Each time your child has a recorded read at home, they will receive a raffle ticket to be entered into our half termly prize draw.
On a Monday, your child’s library book will be changed. These are books to promote a love of reading, which have an age appropriate content, but will need reading to your child, as they do not match up to our Read, Write, Inc. Phonics scheme.
If you have any questions about this year, then please do not hesitate to ask any of the Year 1 staff, who are more than happy to help on any matter big or small!
