Year 1 2019 - 2020

Miss Cadogan

Welcome to Year 1! 

The children have settled into Year 1 and have been very busy practising their handwriting. 





After the October holiday PE will be on a Monday with Mr Doe.  Please can the children have their PE kit in school clearly labelled. 



The children will be given spellings and 1 piece of homework every Friday which will be connected to the topic the children are doing in class . Please can all homework be completed and submitted the following Wednesday. 



Aswell as learning spellings during their Read Write Inc lessons, the children are working hard to learn to spell common exception words. These words have been split into sets and we focus on one set at a time.  Please help your child to continue to practise these spellings at home. These words are very important and the children use them a lot in their writing. 



Please read with your child each evening for 10 to 15 minutes. The children will also bring home some keywords that they have to practise 

This year the children will have a phonics test at the end of Year 1. After the holiday I will be sending home phonics games for the children to practise at home. The children will know how to play the games but they will need your support to play the game with them. 


Thank you for your support.
