Autumn Term 2021
Welcome to Year 1!
This term we will be getting to know each other and how things work in our classroom.
The children will be introduced to our class bears, Jill and Murphy, and each week children will be chosen to take one of the bears home for the weekend. The bears are given to the children who receive a Golden Leaf for super learning, attitude, kindness, effort etc.
We will continue to use Tapestry as a way of showing you some of the things we have been doing in class. You are welcome to post pictures of anything the children would like to show us too. We will gradually encourage the children to take photos and upload their own learning. We will use Tapestry for any updates or things you need to know throughout the term.
Areas of Learning
In Maths our focus will be numbers 1-20 and really getting a solid understanding of these. We will be learning about shape too. Children will carry out a range of activities practically and in small groups.
In Literacy we will be following a phonic scheme called Read Write Inc (more information to follow). We will also be sharing lots of Jill Murphy stories. In the first couple of weeks we will be sharing a book called 'The Invisible', this story will be a focus across the whole school.
Topics over this term will include:
A few handy things....
Please read at least 3 times a week. It’s so important they read little and often, particularly in the early stages of reading. Please help your child to spot key words and talk about the text together. We will be reading this together in school too.
We change all the reading books on a Monday morning. In school your child will be listened to on a weekly basis either individually or in a guided group. If your child needs to change their reading book, just let us know when you drop them off.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to drop us an email or telephone the school and we will get back to you.
Things you can do to help at home:
If you have any questions or concerns then please contact the office by phone or email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We look forward to a very busy term in Murphy Class!

There are lots of ideas for you and your child's wellbeing on our Wellbeing Page. Please take a look!
Don't forget to look on the Forest School webpage for forest school type activities you can do in your home and garden.
Lots of them are 'off screen' ideas.
