Year 1 weekly update – Friday 23rd May


Dear Parents/Carers,

This week we enjoyed sports day and have completed our learning on the story Lost and Found. The children have had a go at writing their own version of the story and we were impressed with their writing and how independent they are becoming with this.

In PSHE, we were talking about how to call 999 in an emergency. Lots of children knew their address which is a really useful piece of information to learn.

In music we have been learning to play the hand bells. There is a short video of each class playing Old MacDonald had a farm. Please watch this in the ‘sharing our music’ section of the school website (under the ‘children’ tab).

Please continue with some reading homework and phonics practise over the half term break as we have the phonics screening check coming up soon!



Homework will be checked on Thursday next week as we won’t be here on Friday.

Reading - please read at home 5 times each week and record this in your reading log. Reading logs will be checked every Friday.

Spellings - Spelling homework is to use Little Birds spelling to support spelling of common exception words. Click on the following link to take you to the game  Along the top where it says ‘Year’, select number 1 for Year 1. This week, we are returning to the light blue house, focusing on the words: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Once you have clicked on the house, press go. Your child will get to study the word to see how to spell it and then has to drag the tiles up to spell it. Playing this more than once will help to secure their spelling of the words. Please record in your child’s purple homework book once they have completed their homework. Alternatively, you may like to get them to practise spelling the words into their homework book. We plan to continue with the same spellings for two weeks at a time.

Maths – Please play numbots for 10 minutes each week. We recommend 3-4 minutes at a time. This will support your child's fluency in maths.


Bring a book from home

Each week we will ask a child from each class to bring in their favourite book from home to share with the class. We will inform you through our newsletter which child’s turn it is to bring in their book for the following week.

Next week it will be:

  • Maria from Pine please bring your favourite book to school.
  • Wren from Maple please bring your favourite book to school.


Enjoy the half term break and we look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday 3rd June.
