We have three classes in Year 1 for September 2020, Ash, Holly and Yew. You can meet your teachers to the right.
Why not take a look at our Twitter account and use #Year1UHPS to see some of the exciting work we have been doing in class.
Top tips for Year 1:
For this half term, children will be allowed to come to school in their PE kit on a Wednesday and Friday. This is to reduce the need for additional items in school and also enables the children to do more PE (no need to get changed). A full PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, trainers, dark coloured jogging bottoms or shorts and a dark coloured jumper / hooded top.
Please ensure all your children’s belongings are clearly labelled (especially jumpers and cardigans!).
Please listen to your child read their book regularly as this will support their confidence, fluency and has a huge impact upon their language and writing skills. Sharing and enjoying books together and reading to your child are equally important. Please ensure that your child’s book is always in their book bag so we can read with them in school during the week.
We will be collecting reading books in on a Tuesday and checking and changing them ready to send home on a Thursday. Please ensure you have signed your child’s reading record so their book can be changed.
Water bottles and snack:
Children are encouraged to bring in their own water bottles (labelled with their name) and will have access to these during the day. It is important to keep them hydrated. Fruit is provided by school each morning. If your child wishes to bring in their own snack, please ensure it is healthy (e.g. preferably fruit based).
We encourage all families to look for opportunities to support their child’s learning outside school. This can be through reading and also phonics practise, number work, watching educational programmes on TV, use of apps and learning about the world around them.
This year any directed tasks to be completed at home will be shared on Tapestry (click). Please ensure your account is active. We will also use this as a form of communication.
Thank you from the Year 1 team.
