In Year 1 we strive to create a smooth transition from Reception into Year 1. We do this by continuing to provide a variety of learning experiences to promote understanding which children are familiar with from their time in Reception. We also begin to create a more structured approach to learning and developing independence.



Children are expected to read every day to an adult and a comment/signature is needed in their reading record at least three times per week.  Reading records are to be handed in every day.


Homework will include; weekly spellings to be tested on a Thursday (class 3) Friday (class 4) and a homework task linked to our maths or topic work. Please return your homework folder every Wednesday so that it can be updated.
