We are committed and passionate about children's learning and development. Our aim is to ensure children have a smooth transition to Year one while building on their learning from reception. Our focus in Year one is to develop a strong foundation for learning and allow their curiosity to flourish. Year one is the beginning of more focused written work and although it's always hard for the children's transition from Reception, we believe that with by striving, dedication and being inspirational we can make that transition easier. We are very proud of our children and amazed by all that they have achieved so far. 








In response to parental surveys and in line with recovery planning, English OR Maths homework will be sent home each week in Year 1. This is to be completed in the child’s homework book.  
Instructions and copies of the homework will be displayed on Google Classroom 

Books go home on a Tuesday and Friday - 10 minutes of reading time. Additional time should be spent in discussion of book e.g., literal, and inferential style questioning 


Children will receive a sound of the week sheet sharing with parents the focus sound from the week’s phonics lessons. This sheet will have some example words, some creative activities to do at home and some handwriting practise.
