I am Miss Crute, the Year 1 class teacher, we are supported in our learning by Miss Randa. The children are all settling into Year One well and working hard! You can also head over to our 'Curriculum' page to see more about what we are learning this year!
Reading is a very important aspect of learning, so we actively encourage children to read every night. A positive work ethos makes all the difference to your child's learning, so your support from home is welcomed and encouraged.
Every Friday homework will be set on Purple Mash and Mathletics and is to be handed in on the following Wednesday. The homework is to review what the children have learnt during the week and help to consolidate their learning. The children will also be given HFW spellings to learn each term.
Your child will be sent home with their log ins for Mathletics, Purple Mash and Spelling Shed, these are fun and interactive ways for the children to continually practise their learning, homework may also be set on these.
Should you find yourself self-isolating at home, please visit our school closure page for activities you can do to continue your child's learning.

This half term's spellings:
Year one have been working hard learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We have created a story map and actions to help us remember. This has allowed the children to write labels, lists and captions based on the story. Next, the children will sequence and retell the story.
Listen to the story:
Year One have been working extra hard on their fine motor skills through dough disco. This has seen a huge improvement in all our handwriting. Well done Year One!
Each morning we come in and practise our yoga and mindfulness, this sets us up for a brilliant day!
