Welcome all to Year 1!
We hope you all had a wonderful summer break and are ready for a fantastic year of learning together.

The children will be following Read Write Inc Phonics programme. RWI is a whole-school approach to teaching literacy that creates fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. It integrates phonics with comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting, using engaging partner work and drama. The children will be assigned to groups according to their level and we will be assessing the children continuously, so that they can move through the groups as they progress.

We are following a Mastery approach when teaching Maths. This focuses on deepening the children’s understanding of mathematical concepts by using concrete, pictorial and numerical resources.

We will send home book bag books as well as the storybooks children have read in school. They include many of the same reading activities that we use in class and include parent guidance. Please ensure that these books stay in the plastic wallet provided and come to school every day.
Library books will be changed in class on a weekly basis. These books are for you to read to your child
