Model Text Practice

This half term, we are learning how to write reports. Please can you practise the model text with your child at home using the story map.

World of Work Week

Wow! What a super World of Work week! We had a visit from Alice and Mike, who work at BBC Look North. We were able to look at a real camera and pretend that we were presenting the news. We also had a visit from Nurse Fraser who taught us about what she did in her job at St James'. She also showed us how to put on a bandage, how to listen to a heart beat using a stethoscope and how to perform CPR! Finally, Miss Crooks showed us the special work she does at Starbucks, when she isn't at Quarry Mount teaching us.

Welcome to Year 1 (2019)
 
Important information:

Physical Education
PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays and children will need their PE kits in school all week.
PE kit should consist of a t-shirt and shorts and a pair of pumps .

Reading Books
Please ensure that your child brings their reading book everyday.
Books will be changed on Mondays but your child must have their reading diary signed to say they have read to an adult. Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
Sharing a book at bedtime or reading a story to your child will help them develop a love for reading!

Spellings and Phonics
Spelling Tests take place on Mondays and new spellings will be given out on Mondays. Words will be stuck/written into the children's spelling books and their test results will also be in these. Please make sure that your child looks after their book and that you check it regularly. Thank you.

Homework
Your children will be set a piece of homework weekly. This will be phonics or maths. A text will be sent home with the page number to be completed. This will be sent out on  Tuesday and brought back on a Friday.
A homework menu linked to our learning in class will also be sent out at the start of each half term. There will be six activities on this menu. Each activity will be allocated points and you and your child can choose which activities you complete.
 We also encourage parents to practise times tables with their children so that they can learn them by reciting them and know them by heart. They should practise x2,x10 and x5.

Reading Eggs and Mathletics websites
 The school has paid for all Year 1 children to use these sites at school and at home.
Log in details and passwords have been sent home. If you have lost your child's deatils please ask for another copy.

 
and finally....
If you have any questions about Year 1 and the things we do, please come and talk to either Mrs Davis or Miss Crooks.
