Homework will be set on a Friday (as and when extra support may be needed following on from classwork) – children will be sent home with their green homework files and expected to hand these in the following Thursday into the homework box outside the classroom.

Phonic sounds and high frequency words will be posted onto the website on a Monday.

PE kits are needed on a Tuesday (after Christmas). Children will need to come into school wearing their PE every Wednesday. This will be outside, due to social distancing, so please wear sensible trainers/pumps, jogging bottoms, warm top, etc. Forest School updates will be posted on our class page and kits requested as and when needed.

Please bring your reading book and reading record into school every Friday and place this in the basket outside the classroom. Please remember to include reading record so we know who it belongs to. These will stay in the basket for 72 hours over the weekend and be swapped and given out again on Monday. We encourage reading as much as possible in KS1 and children will be reminded to read regularly to an adult at home (due to Covid19 we will only be changing reading books once a week). Squirrels class are also encouraged to choose their own additional book from our reading corner that they wish to share at home with an adult. This could involve them reading to the adult or listening to the adult read to them to promote their love of reading. Please note this additional book is not from a reading scheme but entirely the child’s choice based on their interests. 

Class rewards include Class Dojo points, stickers, certificates, 2 x star of the day teddies (Monty the Monkey and Poppy the Penguin) – these are kept for one night and should be returned the next day with a small piece of writing about their adventures and either a photograph or drawing to share with the class. (Star of the Day will be done a little differently for Autumn term and just a certificate will be sent home until government guidelines alter and it is safe to send teddies home again).  Children are encouraged to read regularly at home and when they have read at home, they are given a raffle ticket to be drawn for a prize on a Friday. Golden time is given on Friday afternoons.

Thank you

Year 1 Maths Expectations

Mathematics-Expectations-Year-1

Attached above are the end of year Maths Expectations for Year 1. They are the minimum expectations that all pupils must attain by the end of Year 1 in order to be ‘At the expected standard’ in Maths.

The content identifies basics to ensure children make rapid progress and access learning in other areas, as well as securing success in terms of preparing children for the next stages in their learning.

I have attached this document for your information as a lot of learning has taken place at home over recent months so you can use this document to track and assess where your child is at and any gaps that they may have. It is purely so you can see what your child is expected to achieve in maths by the end of the academic year and gives examples of how they could do this. It also helps to prepare them for their new year group in September.

Your child’s new teacher in September will be sharing the appropriate document for their new year group with you at our Autumn term parents evening. Alongside our termly NTS assessments, teachers will also be using these documents to assess and track children’s progress throughout the year.

Written with age appropriate expectations in mind, they:

  • focus on the basics; making a difference to progress for all children
  • support teachers in recognising key areas to promote progress
  • are based on the average pupil in the cohort, supporting the need for differentiation.

These expectations are in no way intended to cover the entirety of the curriculum – they are an on-going reminder of key objectives for the year group. They are the basics in order to embed and support meaningful learning.
