During this half term we will enjoy reading our key text 'Winter Sleep' by Sean Taylor and Alex Morss.

In Year 1 there is a big emphasis on Phonics. We follow a programme called 'Read Write Inc' (RWI). The Read Write Inc programme is for primary school children learning to read. It enables every child to become a confident and fluent reader.
Below are some useful resources to support your child's learning in Phonics including Set 1 , Set 2 and Set 3 Phonic mats. These have all of the letter sounds that your child will be learning.
By the end of Year 1 children should be able to read all of the common exception words and most or all of the high frequency words. Below are lists of the key words. Please regularly practise reading and writing these words as this will really support and further develop your child's reading skills.
PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Please ensure your child does not have earrings in on PE days.
