Welcome to Class 1

Class 1: Useful Information


Homework will go out on a Friday, to be completed and returned to school by the following Friday. Expect lots of stickers, smiley faces and house-points for completing your homework!


Maths is fun! We will be following the Teaching for Mastery approach, which I believe helps all children to make progress. By the end of this year the children need to be confident with their number facts within 10 and also counting in 10s, 2s and 5s, so please help your little one by practising at home as much as you can!    


We will be using a mixture of The Write Stuff and Talk for Writing to help progress our writing. We use the FANTASTICs to help us write and we love creating actions when talking through a text! This helps us use some amazing vocabulary! We have some exciting writing topics in store to inspire our budding authors! 


We will be continuing with some individual reading with an adult this term. It would be great if you could also listen or read to your child at home every day too.

Phonics & Spellings

Phonics will be taught daily. We link our spellings with our phonic sounds for the week. Spellings will be sent home and will be tested every Friday morning. Try to practise as many times as you can. 

PE / Forest School

Please ensure you send your child to school in their PE kits for sporting activities on a Wednesday with Mr Foggin! Don’t forget to come ready wearing your Forest School kit on Fridays. We go out whatever the weather!
