The class teachers in Year 1 are:
Otter Class - Miss Merrick
Squirrel Class - Mrs Bradley
Homework will be sent every Friday to be completed in pencil by the following Wednesday. Children will receive spellings, mental maths and another piece of work each week. There will be a spelling test and a mental maths test every Friday. Please encourage your child to ask in school for further explanation of their homework activities if they don’t understand, before it is due to be handed in.
Your child should also read every day, in addition to homework. Please discuss what your child has read and then record the text in your child’s Reading Record. Your child can also be encouraged to read other things, e.g. newspapers, comics, magazines, library books, etc. which can also be recorded in their reading record.
In Year 1, children continue to have high frequency key words sent home to practise reading.
