Year 1 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 1
Class teacher: Mrs Jordan
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Robinson, Mrs Lee and Mrs Parry
Welcome to Year 1’s page where you can find out about all the exciting things that we get up to!
The Year 1 class is taught by myself Mrs Jordan with support from Mrs Robinson, Mrs Lee and Mrs Parry
Our first theme in the autumn term is “The Naughty Bus.”
We shall focus on our school and the local area of Bramhall.
In spring the theme is “Memory Box.”
We shall spend this term investigating how life has changed since our parents and grandparents were 5 and 6.
The summer term theme is “Enchanted Woodlands”
We shall be comparing the differences between our English woodlands and the Daintree Rainforest in Australia.
As you are aware this shall continue in a similar style as Reception. Children shall be given 5 Rainbow Challenges to complete over the week. These challenges support and enhance their learning and will help them to become independent learners.
These challenges are compulsory to complete either independently or with adult support where needed. When a child has completed all their Rainbow Challenges during Monday – Friday they shall receive a super dojo.
After Christmas the challenges reduce in number but the children will be encouraged to complete as many of these independently as they can. These will have to be completed before they can choose an independent activity.
Your child’s P.E day is Tuesday. Please can I ask that all children have an outdoor P.E kit in school at all times as ALL P.E sessions shall be taken outside.
As our British weather is extremely unpredictable, please can you ensure your child has a coat in school each day in case of rain. We do encourage the children to use our outdoor learning space and we would hate for them to miss out. Can I also ask that all items of clothes are named so that any lost property can be returned.
All homework will now be completed online. Children will be asked to complete one book and quiz per week on Rising stars. To complete tasks set on Mathletics. We shall also set a task via dojo portfolio every two weeks.
Please ensure that reading books are brought in on a daily basis with their reading diary. An adult shall read with your child each week and this shall be recorded in their diary. We also read independently on a daily basis. I am always assessing when your child is ready to move up to the next book band and I will always let you know when I feel they are ready to move on.
If your child's book is ready to be changed simply add a star in their diary and I can then change this for them.
Water bottles and snacks
Your child has access to fruit each day which is supplied by the school. However, if you choose to send in a healthy snack that is absolutely fine. The children shall eat their snack during their playtime so please ensure it is something suitable. Please can you also ensure that you bring a water bottle in each day. The children can also refill this throughout the day.
As you are aware we have an online booking system for lunches, this must be done from home please.
I have sent out invites to join our class dojo and this is where I shall communicate with you the most. There is an app which is available to download for free and this is the most efficient way to contact me if needed. I also post pictures of the children’s work on class story so please keep your eyes peeled for them to appear.
Apologies for information overload, however I wanted to try and answer all of your queries. If you do have any other questions please message me on DOJO and I shall endeavour to respond as soon as I possibly can.
Many thanks for taking the time to support us.
