Welcome to Year 1

 

Welcome to Year 1 and the Autumn Term!

Our teaching team consists of Mrs van Spelde, Mrs Romer and Miss Hopkins (Class Teachers), Miss Tetley and Mrs Coates (Teaching Assistants) and Miss Spencer (School Direct Trainee Teacher).

 

Autumn Term: Belonging…

Our Autumn term theme is ‘Belonging…’ where we will be looking at where we belong, exploring different ways we belong, embracing new opportunities and challenging ourselves through our learning. We will be using a selection of Inspirational Texts as a way of engaging with our school curriculum, giving us fantastic opportunities to develop cross curricular links across all other subject areas.

 

Important Information

• We are timetabled to have PE every Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day as plans may change!

• School reading books will be changed weekly during our guided reading sessions. We also send our guided reading books home weekly so that the children can practise using their reading skills to read a familiar text that they have been taught in school. Please remember to have your Reading Record, Individual and Guided Reading books in your bag every.

• Home Learning is set on a Wednesday and is due on the following Monday. The children will be given a slip outlining the task. Advice, guidance and helpful links will be given on the Home Learning slip but if you require additional information please speak with one of the Year 1 team on the door.

There will be lots of exciting learning going on in Year 1 this term, please follow us on Twitter (@GorseyY1) to keep up to date with all our adventures and share your child’s learning journey!

Our new bookshelf text is ‘Amazing Grace’. In the story Grace’s family tell her she can be anything that she wants to be, as long as she puts her mind to it. So we asked Year 1 what they would like to be... #gorseypshe #gorseyy1
