Together Everyone Achieves More
Croeso i Flwyddyn 1!
Keep your eyes peeled for exciting ways to support your children in their learning.
Beth dym ni'n dysgu? / What are we learning about?
Our learning context in Autumn 1 2017 is 'Wiggle and Crawl'
We are learning about minibeasts and their homes. Our topic book is "Superworm" by Julia Donaldson, and we are going to write our very own stories about Superworm's Adventures.
P.E will take place on Monday (Outdoors) and Tuesday.
You should have all received a letter confirming the day that we change your child's reading book. However, to help them to progress as much as possible, we try to read more than once a week with them. Therefore, please send in your child's book EVERY DAY.
Your child will receive individual spelling lists every week on their reading day. These are high-frequency words. Please practise reading the words with them, and then once they can read by sight please practise spelling them.
In addition to these spellings, as a class we will also begin looking at spelling patterns. This website will be updated with our pattern of the week so that you can practise with them at home as well if you wish.
We practise saying, hearing and using our sounds within words and sentences. Here are some useful games to help you practise at home.

It is essential that you read with your child on a daily basis. We would encourage you to practise reading their key words along with their reading books.
Please ensure that these are brought to school, along with your child's reading diary everyday. As well as reading key word cards and books at home.
It is also important that you ask questions about the texts that are being read in order to develop their comprehension skills.
Spellings are assessed weekly with your child on the same day that we change their reading books. These assessments are done on a one-to-one basis.
It would be beneficial for your children to practise writing these words within full sentences to enhance their writing skills. Remember to start each sentence with a capital letter and finish with a full stop.
Physical movement time is on a Monday and Tuesday. Full P.E. kit is expected to be brought to school every Monday morning and will then be returned each Friday for washing.
Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day. Please ensure that your child comes to school with a full bottle each day.
We are promoting healthy eating here at All Saints' and therefore encourage a healthy snack to be brought to school for playtime. Fruit can be purchased from the hall on a daily basis, at the cost of 25p per day.
Homework is a vital part of our learning in Year One. All children have now been given a blue homework book which will go home every fortnight on a Tuesday.
Thank you for visiting Year 1's web page.
