Welcome to Year 1

 

Welcome to Year 1

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

Our Spring Term theme is ‘The Lion Inside…’ where we will be looking at finding courage within, overcoming challenges and learning not to judge a book by its cover. Along the way we will be embracing new opportunities and challenging ourselves through our learning across the curriculum. We will be using a selection of high-quality texts to drive our exciting curriculum and allow for meaningful opportunities to develop cross-curricular links between subject areas.

Important information for Year 1:
• We are timetabled to have PE every Tuesday morning and Friday 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 as part of our Guided Reading sessions. We also send our Guided Reading books home each week so that the children can practise using their reading skills on a familiar text that they have been taught to read in school. Please remember to have your Reading Record, Individual and Guided Reading books in your bag every day.
• 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 a member of the Year 1 team who will be ‘on the door’ at the start and end of each school day.

As always, there will be lots of exciting learning taking place 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!

It is so important when reading to use ‘sound talking’ to blend sounds helping us to decode tricky words. We also need to apply sounds we know and keep working on identifying the taught graphemes in everyday words...#gorseyenglish #gorseyphonics @GorseyY1
