Reading at home
Reading at home

Please continue to read with your child as much as possible (we recommend just a few minutes every day). If you read at home - remember to sign the reading diary to say you have done so (with a comment if possible).

They will also get a sticker on their reading cards and when they have filled these will receive a prize from Mrs Lewis in celebration assembly! 

 

Phonics

 The children are taught discrete phonics lessons everyday following the Letters and Sounds program.  We teach the children the sounds in order for them to read and write with increasing proficiency. At the end of Year 1 (in June) the children will be completing a Phonics Screening Check which is a legal requirement for each child. They will apply their phonics knowledge to read 40 words, 20 of which are real and 20 which are not (we call these alien words).

The weekly spellings that the children receive are linked to the sounds and words that they learn in their phonics lessons. It is important that these are practiced at home.

 

There is more information about the Phonics Screening Check here:

Below are the sounds that the children will be learning this year. We will be building on their knowledge from EYFS as they previously would been taught Phase 2 and Phase 3. There will be a big focus on children learning Phase 4 and Phase 5 and applying this knowledge to read and write words containing those sounds.

English

The children start the term with a visit from different types of owls. They will then write a recount using time connectives and adjectives. This term we will be focusing on sentence structure and learning how to read back writing and make changes if needed. They will be building on the skills they have been learning so far this year. 

Sentence Writing Criteria

In Year 1 we teach the children how to use capital letters and full stops. They learn how to separate each word with a finger space so it is easy to read back their own work. We have been learning how to make writing more interesting by using adjectives and conjunctions. 

We have introduced a new handwriting scheme and the children have been learning how to write in cursive handwriting.

Cursive Handwriting

Maths

This term there will be a big focus on place value with numbers from 20-50. The children will be taught about tens and ones and how to partition numbers to show this.

There will be lots of counting games and songs so children can learn how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.
