Year 1



Welcome to Year One!


PE days are Tuesday and Thursday, if you haven't already, please could you send your child's PE kit in ready for our next lesson. Please may I also remind you that you should remove earrings on PE days and it really helps if PE kit and uniform is labelled with your child's name.


Reading bags should be sent into school daily to maximise our opportunities to read with the children. We will ensure that the children's books are changed weekly though this may not be on a set day. Please write in your child's reading journal every time you read - remember to support your child's progress we recommend that you read with them daily.


Thank you for your support,

Mrs Connell, Miss Chambers and Mrs Wiltshire

---------- Phonics Check ----------


In Year 1 the children work really hard to learn the sounds for the phonics check which is in June. During the check the children will be required to read 40 words. Some are real and some are alien words to check that they really know the sounds. Below are the sounds that your child should know by the end of year 1.


Phase 2 sound mat                                                 Phase 3 sound mat                                                 Phase 5 sound mat


To help your child there phonics websites and apps which have games on and other information about the check.
