Year 1 - Florence Nightingales
The Florence Nightingales are an excitable, curious class with a love for learning!
Have a look at our class page to see what we have been learning!
Welcome to Year 1!
With coming back to school, there was and still is a lot of uncertainty around school life for children and parents. Therefore, this term we are focusing on the wellbeing of pupils, reassuring them that whatever they are feeling is understandable and reasonable. Here you will find our first day back 'All about me' booklets, which the children thoroughly enjoyed, as well as I, as I got to know my class.
Our topic this half term is 'Where I belong'. Please take a look at our topic web to find out what we will be getting up to!
Due to the unforeseen circumstances of Covid-19, our children are now being educated at home. We are using Class Dojo to set work and provide help and information to parents and carers. If your child is not set up on Class Dojo, please contact the class teacher for a code. Lot's of these websites also provide an app version for phones and tablets!
Below are listed websites that can help your child with their home learning:
At Meadow Farm we are committed to establish strong links between home and school. We know that children who are supported at home by family achieve well. As well as other enrichment activities, we know that homework plays a positive role in raising a child’s level of attainment. Therefore, we ask that you plan time in during the week to encourage your child to complete homework tasks. In Year 1, your child will receive homework tasks on a Friday, due in on the following Thursday to be marked.
The homework expectations in Year One are:
Reading- We aim to change your child's reading book every week. Please ensure you read with your child 3 times a week and write in their reading diaries. Please discuss the books with your children, ask them questions to develop their comprehension and try to correct reading errors where possible. The children also love reading eggs and this encourages the children to practice their reading. Please record any reading eggs activity in their reading diaries also.
Spelling- We will be learning a new Year 1 spelling rule or practicing our common exception words ("tricky words") in our spellings each week. Please encourage your child to practice these as many times as possible during the week ready for our spelling test on a Friday. Any child who achieves 100% on their spellings will receive a Super Speller Award!
Maths- Every week your child will be reflecting on their maths learning from the week in their homework. Your child should already know the skills required to complete this homework as independently as possible and this is their opportunity to apply these new skills. I appreciate that this is not always possible so thank you in advance for any support you provide your child in completing this task!
