Welcome to Year 1
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to school, we hope you all had a restful and healthy break over the Christmas period. May we take this opportunity to thank you for all your kind wishes, cards and gifts received at the end of last term.
On this page you will be able to find out about all the exciting learning happening in Year 1 and below you will find our half termly planning, newsletter and ideas for home learning.
You will see that our maths learning for the next half term is Addition and Subtraction within 10 and we will be following the White Rose scheme of learning which you can view here.
In addition, a copy of the 'Common Exception Words' for Year 1 can be found. Common Exception Words are the same as 'tricky' words or in Read Write Inc., 'red' words and are words where the usual spelling pattern doesn't apply, such as friend, said or some. These are the National Curriculum recommended words a Year 1 child should be confident spelling as they complete Year 1.
A copy of the first 100 high frequency words is also available below. These are words that appear very often in written texts. It is really important that children learn how to read these words as they will make up a large proportion of the words they will be reading in everyday texts.
If you do have any questions or queries then please don't hesitate to speak to us, either by contacting the office, or via the Year 1 forum page.
