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.
Autumn 2 Learning Challenge projects. 
Some of the children in Year 1 made some amazing instruments for their learning challenge project as we have been learning all about the Beatles!

In Year 1 we have 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 at the first attempt.


Below I have attached the Set 1 , Set 2 and Set 3 phonics mats which have all of the letter 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  Phonics mats attached and go through them with your child regularly, you could click on the links below and play the phonics games and most importantly read with your child as often as you can and make it enjoyable for them!
