Welcome

Hello and welcome to our Year 1 class page. We hope that you find all of the information about our class that you may need on our page.

It was lovely to welcome our Year 1 children into their new classroom in September. All children are settling well and are enjoying being with their friends and learning again. During the day we have focussed whole class learning times, focussed group learning times, time to learn through play and time to be outside.

This week we have welcomed Miss Phillips, our new Learning Support Assistant. Miss Phillips has worked at Moorfield before in Early Years. Miss Phillips will be mainly based in Year 1.

Thank you for taking the time to read our page. If you would like to find out more or have a question that has not been answered please contact us at school.

Miss Wright and Miss Phillips.

Reading at Home & Homework

Reading at Home

Reading packs have been given to each child. Each reading pack contains-

  • a library book for pleasure and shared reading
  • a school scheme reading book
  • a Read, Write inc book or ditty- at the correct reading level
  • a sound mat and lollipop stick
  • a reading diary.

Later in the term your child will come home with high frequency words for reading. There is an expectation that you read with your child at least 3 times a week. Please ensure that you sign their diary. Reading packs need to be in class daily and they will be changed once a week. We will check reading diaries daily and children will get a mark on our reading chart. Children reading three times a week plus, will get to choose small prize from our prize box. Reading should be fun and exciting so please make some time in your day to share a story.

Homework

Homework in Year 1 is reading and high frequency words. We may send other work home if and when needed.

PE

PE is on Monday afternoon with Mr Brookes. Children are to bring their full PE kits into school at each half term and it is to be kept in school until the end of the half term. If any kits need washing we will of course send them home. Full PE kit is- a white t shirt, black shorts, black pumps. When colder weather comes you may wish to bring in a jumper and a pair of black jogging bottoms.

Names must be in all items of clothing. Little ones are becoming more independent and are responsible for dressing themselves for PE, with help from staff if needed.

Snacks and Water Bottles

Healthy snacks are provided at break time. We ask for a contribution of £4.00 per half term to supply this for your child. Examples of daily snacks include- rice cakes, crackers, fruit, cereal, toast. Water bottles are also provided, these are changed daily. Please do not send your own water bottle with your child, unless it is part of their packed lunch. We drink water through the day, fruit juice is not appropriate.

Phonics (KS1 Only)

Phonics is the teaching of sounds in order to learn to read and write.

Children are grouped according to their reading ability for phonics in order to ensure that they are learning exactly what they need and make the best possible progress. We learn sounds along with Fred the Frog and these are built into words for reading and writing. Words become sentences and sentences become stories. A wide world of possibilities is opened up for your child.

Maths

Our focus in maths is number, counting to 20 and beyond. All children need to count, read, write and make numbers to 20. We will be ensuring that all children can add and subtract numbers within 10 and beyond. Know 1 more and 1 less to 10 and doubles up to 5. We will also be focussing on number formation.

Science

This half term, we are learning about our bodies and our senses in Science. We will start by naming parts of our body. We will then move onto exciting activities involving our five sense of see, hear, small and touch. All children will be expected to name the 5 senses and talk about them by then end of the half term.
