Year 1 Overview

Welcome to Year 1 which is the first class in Key Stage 1.

Our Teacher in Year 1 is Miss Beckett and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Morris.

In Year 1 we learn lots of new things and we like to read lots and lots. This year we are going to be learning about lots of interesting things such as; Information about Widnes, The Beatles, Princess Diana, how toys have changed since our grandparents were little and what the differences are between the Amazon Rainforest and Widnes.

Our text this term (Autumn )  is 'The Bog Baby' by Jeanne Willis.
This is a lovely book which links with our Geography, DT and Science topics. 
The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis
In Year 1 we have a big emphasis on Phonics. 
We do Set 2 and Set 3 phonics in Year 1 but because of lockdown we are starting by recapping Set 1. 
Below I have attached the Set 1 and Set 2 phonics mat which has all of the sounds that your child should know and will be learning. 
If you would like to give your child some more support at home you could show them the Set 1 and Set 2 phonics mats and go through them with your child regularly and you could also click on the links below and play the phonics games. 
Autumn 1 Learning Challenge projects. 
Some of the children in Year 1 made some amazing posters about Widnes for their learning challenge homework.
