 Snowy January 




Welcome to Year One.

Year 1 is taught by Mrs Pierrepont.

Miss Barnard, Mrs Emmerson and Mrs Hellewell are also part of the Year 1 team. 

Happy New year. During Spring term, we will have lots of learning opportunities across the whole curriculum. This term in mathematics we are developing our knowledge of numbers to 100, counting in 10s and 5s and using our skills to compare lengths and heights. We will continue to also practice adding and subtracting with bigger numbers. In English, we are looking at lots of different text types to ensure we are away of the clear purpose of our writing. To do this we will use our developing knowledge of phonics to help us write more accurately and independently. 

In addition to this, we will be designing and making our own fruit salads, learning sign language to go with our 'schools rock' performance and much more. 

Below are some of our photos from a very snowy start to the year. This made learning come alive as we talked about seasonal change as part of our science learning. 


 Little Wandle

As a class we Love to share books and a big part of our everyday job at school is to develop this love of reading with your child and also help them to understand the mechanics of reading. Each day we have a phonics session which is showing children new letters (graphemes) to read and the sound (phoneme) these letters make. 

The more practice children have with reading the more confident they will get and soon will have the feeling of  becoming an independent reader.

Each week we will send home a book on a Thursday. Thursday is our book changing day. This book matches there knowledge within the Little Wandle Phonics scheme we are currently using. Having the same book each day allows your child to start reading by using their blending skills, that is saying the sound for each letter and then blending to say the word. As the week goes  on and with more practice these words will start to be stored in their memory banks so they can just start to ‘read’ the word. 


 We hope to see you at our next Stay and read session on the 1st February.
