Phonics Screening Test
Year one children will be taking their national phonic screening tests WC: 6th June. The children have been working really hard on their phonics in school. Over the half term, children would really benefit from daily practise of the phonics sheets we have sent home. This will help build their confidence and consolidate their learning.
Please complete the phonics activity below

Happy Easter Year 1. We hope that you have a wonderful Easter break...don't eat too much chocolate!
Please remember to read your reading book so that you come back to school even better than before. We are so proud of your reading progress.
Keep it up!
The following websites offer online games to support the phonics that we teach in school. They are suitable for phones, tablets and PCs. This term your child will be working on the Phase 3 tasks, so please select these to start with. Have fun!
Reading at home
Well done to all of the children who are reading at home 3 or more times a week.
In school we carry out a daily phonics session to learn new letter sounds and consolidate known sounds. Your child can then apply this knowledge when reading their home-reader. It is really important that you read with your child at home in order to practise (and show-off) their reading skills.
Many of our home-readers have a helpful list of sounds in the front cover to read through first; these are the main sounds that they will come across in the book. There are also questions at the back to ask after reading a book.
Please can you read with your child at least 3 times a week and sign their reading record? There are 3 spaces per-week for your signature.
If you need any help and support in using the reading books, please do not hesitate to ask your child's class teacher.
This term, we have been extremely busy designing and making Christmas stockings ready to hang up on Christmas Eve. Sewing was definitely a big challenge for all of us but perseverance meant they were all finished and we are ALL extremely proud of our finished Christmas stockings.
We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Christmas tree competition winners.
A challenge was set for all classes in school. A prize would be given to the best decorated Christmas tree.
The winner was Orange class. The children were inspired by the story 'The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas'
Odd Socks Day
Can you spot your socks?
We are extremely proud of all of the children in Year 1 for showing their respect when taking part in the two minutes silence for Remembrance Day today.
We Will Remember.

Hook Day - If you went down to the hall today...
...you would have found the Year 1s enjoying their very own teddy bear's picnic.
The children came to school with their bears and found they had been invited to a picnic in the afternoon and that they would have to spend the morning getting ready for it.
Every child made their own sandwich and helped to make some biscuit dough. They used a teddy shaped cutter to cut the dough so that they had a teddy biscuit with their sandwich.
All the children remembered to wash their hands before touching food and tried their best with spreading butter and folding their bread in half.
The hall was filled with picnic mats and the children enjoyed eating their food and having a dance after with their bears. We all loved seeing the different types of teddies the children have and are looking forward to finding out more about the history of toys.
