Welcome to Year 1

Where learning is fuelled by creativity

What to expect in Year 1

Year 1 is a really exciting time for you and your child. Moving from Reception into the first year of the National Curriculum can feel like a big step, but please don’t worry, some of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum may be carried on with your child as they move to Year 1.

Your child’s day will be more structured than it was in Reception but we love storytelling, practical maths and exploring topics through our STAR learning.

We are very lucky that the Year 1 classrooms open out into a secure learning area. This means the children will be learning through play – exploring, discovering and plenty of role-play, both indoors and out.

There is a Year 1 statutory phonics screening test in June. This will identify if your child can read phonically decodable words. Your child will have a daily phonics sesion to teach them how to blend to read and segment to spell.

We love reading!

We will be sharing lots of stories and poetry on the theme of colour and senses.

Phonics is a big part of Year 1.

Your child will continue to expand on their knowledge of phonics and will probably surprise you with just how quickly they develop their reading. They will do 30 minutes of phonics learning each day, just like they did in Reception. These are fun, pacy sessions which involve games and tasks. They will learn tricky words, spelling rules and how to sound out and blend to aid them with their reading and writing.

 

Support your child’s learning at home

Summer term 2020 – Ideas!

Year 1 Homelearning Summer 1

Reading

Reading at home with your child is so important. It helps them to develop their learning in lots of areas. We expect you to hear your child read aloud every night. You may not always have time to read the whole book (we completely understand home life is busy – we are parents too) but just a few pages a day can increase your child’s confidence and get them into the routine of practising and applying their phonic knowledge.

Sometimes your child may want to read a book from home. As long as they are reading, that’s fantastic. Most children this age really love to read new and familiar stories as well as comic books and magazines. Please make sure you sign the Reading Diary otherwise we’ll assume that your child has not read to an adult at home.

Spellings

In Year 1, as well as phonics, we learn a number of common exception words. Download this list to practice at home: Year 1 common exception words.

Home Learning

Each Friday your child will be sent home with a small piece of home learning, which is normally focused on Maths. This will consolidate the learning which has taken place throughout the week whilst in school. The children are asked to return it the following Thursday.

Maths

The end of year 1 expectation is to be able to;

  • count forwards and backwards to 100,
  • recognise 1 more/1 less,
  • recognise odd and even numbers,
  • count in 2, 5 and 10
  • and know their number bonds to 10 (pairs of numbers that make 10) and then to 20.

You can help your child in a variety of ways. The most powerful way will be through discrete and fun activities such as counting out the cutlery for dinner. Disguise the learning! Whilst in the car read a number from a number plate and ask your child to find 1 more and 1 less.

Most importantly…

Try to keep any home learning light, and don’t push it if they seem tired or reluctant. The most important thing is to talk with your child about their learning and enjoy seeing the enthusiasm on their face.

School closure - general learning activities

It is really important that all children remain learning in the time when we are not at school. Retention of learning is crucial: if we don’t use it, we loose it!

We would recommend that where possible, children have structure throughout the day and choose as many activities from the list below as it possible. If you would like to complete other learning activities, please do!

  • Read and spelling the 45 common common exception words shown in the back of the reading record book. You could always work on the Y2 ones as well!
  • Use phonics information in back of the reading record book. The children need to be able to say the sound when shown the letter (or letters) as well as write the letter (or letters) in response to the sound.
  • Handwriting: please practise letter formation using the letter families in the back of the reading record book. Please use a sharp pencil and remember how to sit properly and remember your pencil grip!
  • Find some interesting pictures to write a sentence or two about. We always use a capital letter at the start of each sentence and a full stop at the end. Remember spaces between words. We have been learning to use adjectives.
  • Contents of Phonic pouches
  • word lists for phonic pouches for school closure
  • All sound pouch cards for school closure
  • Sound Pouch contents for school closure
  •  Maths
    • count forwards and backwards to 100,
    • recognise 1 more/1 less,
    • recognise odd and even numbers,
    • count in 2, 5 and 10
    • and know their number bonds to 10 (pairs of numbers that make 10) and then to 20.
    • AMAZING White Rose resources!

 

Obviously all children are different, having a variety of strengths and areas to develop. You may need to break these tasks down and offer them more support, or challenge them further.

If you have a garden, get outside as much as possible. Look at the different leaves and flowers – try some sketching or write a poem. Use our wonderful natural environment to develop curiosity.

On return to school, all teachers would love to see what you have got up to at home, but also, feel free to mark anything at home – children love instant feedback!

In the ‘Discovery’ section of the website, you will find additional websites to support your child’s learning.

It would be amazing if children had the basics of telling the time by the time we return to school! We also have a focus on friendship – we know how much they are missing their friends, and this maybe a good activity to reflect on how special friends are.

Task 2
As part of our World War Two topic we were going to look at what happened to children during the war. The Prime Minister was afraid that British cities and towns would be targeted by
German aircrafts so young children were sent away to make sure they were kept safe. To find out more use the links below:

Task 3
Ramadan is a very important month for Muslims. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink between dawn and sunset. This is called fasting. Fasting is important during Ramadan as it allows Muslims to devote themselves to their faith and come closer to Allah, or God. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which form the basis of how Muslims live their lives. The other pillars are faith, prayer, charity and making the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. There are 2 videos below to help you understand Ramadan.

This week we would like you to start looking at how to modify verbs, nouns and adjectives, for example to make plurals. We are looking at adding ‘-s’ or ‘-es’ to a root word. Most words don’t change when we add ‘-s’ (for example walk – walks, cat – cats), but if a word ends with a hissing or buzzing sound, and adding ‘-s’ creates another syllable, then the /s/ sound is spelled ‘es’ (for example watch – watches, fizz – fizzes, brush – brushes).

As we have been quite lucky with the weather this week, we would like you to complete a Wildflower Hunt whilst out on a walk or you may be lucky enough to have a go in your garden. We would like you to identify and name the wildflowers attached in this document. Wildflower Hunt for week 3
