Y1EJ

Welcome to Y1EJ

We hope you had a great half term and cannot wait to hear all about what you have been up to!

We have a new and exciting topic for this half term:

Moon Zoom

CRASH! What’s that in the playground? Let’s go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone – it looks like a UFO has crash-landed!

It’s got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn’t know what to do!

Are you ready for take off Year 1?

Hold tight... 5-4-3-2-1… LIFT OFF!

Things to remember!

  • Please bring your child’s PE kit every Monday and take it home on Friday. Our PE day is on Tuesday and Friday (weather permitting!)

 

  • Please support your child with their homework which will be given every Thursday and return it by the following Tuesday. House points will be awarded for homework that is handed in on time.

 

  • Wednesday afternoon is our weekly library slot – could you please ensure that library books remain in the children’s’ book bag. This will then allow the books to be changed each week.

 

  • There will be a focus on Phonics throughout Year One; this will provide extra support for children in preparation for the Phonics Screening Check in June.

 

  • Please encourage your child to use the pre cursive handwriting at home as well as practising the various phonics sounds.
