Welcome to Puffins' Class Page

 

                                                                                                    

Welcome to our last Summer half term in Puffins!

Our topic is 'Puffins by the Sea'

 

 

Take a look at the Summer Parent's Letter and Curriculum Overview

 

 Throughout Year 1, our learning is linked to topics that children find interesting and stimulating.  We continually aim to make links between different aspects of our learning so there is a familiar context to learn new skills.

 Follow the link for our  yearly plan.

 

This year Puffins will continue to be taught by Mrs Watts (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Gosling (Wed-Fri).

Mrs Goldie is our classroom assistant who works with us everyday.

We welcome into class Mrs Thain, who will help us with our learning every morning.

 

Click here to have a look at our Puffin's Timetable to see what we do most days.

We do not expect the children in Year 1 to have specific homework at this stage of the year,

other than reading as often as possible.  

 

Please remember to read everyday with you child and

encourage them to change their books each morning as they come into school.

Please sign in their books each time they read at home - they will earn more house points!

We aim to listen to the children read twice each week in groups and individually every fortnight or more.  We constantly assess all the areas of reading that the children need to master.  At no point do we wish to hold children back in their reading.  However, we will make professional  judgments as to when the children are ready to move to a new level. Supplementing their breadth of reading with books from home and libraries enriches their learning and their enjoyment.  Thank you!

 

Here are some ideas to support children's learning in maths (Maths leaflet

and key spellings that children need to learn ready for Year 2. (Spelling List).

P.E. always takes place on a Monday and Wednesday or Friday, but children must have a kit in school each day.  We would recommend they have tracksuit bottoms to wear in the winter. 

Please ensure your child has the full appropriate kit in school, including footwear, to allow them to take part in every P.E. lesson.

Please also ensure all P.E. kit and uniform is clearly named.

Earrings must be removed at home.
