Welcome to Year 1!

The teacher in Year One is  Mrs Coates and Mrs Lord-Jones and Miss Wood are our teaching assistants. 


This term our work will be based around the text 'Man on the Moon'

Bob has a special job - looking after the moon.

He keeps it clean and entertains passing space tourists as well as giving guided tours.  He knows everything about the moon and that there is definitely no such thing as aliens!


From this book we will be: making predictions, posing questions, writing as the character (thought bubbles), exploring feelings and body language from the illustrations, creating a story map, and re-writing our own version of the story.


Homework is set on a Tuesday and should be returned to school the following Monday.  Children who complete their homework receive a 5 Dojo points.


Reading Books can be changed daily.  For every book read your child will receive 3 dojo points and get to move their ‘Reading Rocket’.  For every 20 books read, your child will get to pick a prize from our special prize box!   


PE takes place twice per week on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit available in school - including pumps / trainers.
