Norway – Year 1

Hello and welcome to Norway Class!

The adults working with your children are Miss Worrall, Mrs Hubbock, Mrs Turiano, Miss Broadwood and Mrs Burgress. The children will also be taught by Mrs Cowley on a Tuesday afternoon and Mrs Sturdee on a Wednesday afternoon.  We work together to deliver a fun, creative and engaging curriculum for your children- so be prepared to be dazzled with their new knowledge! Should you wish to speak to Miss Worrall, please drop me an email or ask to speak to me after school.

Information-

P.E

Norway have P.E once a week, on a Wednesday afternoon. Children need to arrive at school in their P.E. kit on this day. They will need to wear a full tracksuit in-case of cold weather. They can wear their shorts and t-shirt underneath. Earrings should be removed before arriving at school or, alternatively, your child can remove them before the lesson. Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly named to ensure they are not lost.

The children are taught a range of P.E. skills including dance, basketball, tennis, hockey, football and gymnastics. On occasion, we are fortunate enough to have visitors come in and teach the children. The children will have swimming lessons later in the year. More information will be sent home about this nearer the time.

 

Snack

Children can bring in one snack for morning break time. This is to be a healthy snack and items such as grapes of olives must be cut in half. The children also receive a free piece of fruit or a vegetable every afternoon. Please inform us of any allergies your child may have.

 

Homework

Once a half term, you child will get a new homework ‘Bingo Board’. The children can choose from a range of activities and even repeat some if they would like. We love to see what you’ve been getting up to so please include some evidence. This could include photos, drawings, diary entries etc. the more creative the better! We would also like to make sure that the children are working on their key English and Mathematical skills at home. Please continue to read with your child and access Education City as much as possible. We hope you enjoy these activities at home and look forward to seeing what you’ve been getting up to!

Key Stage 1 Toy Story – Autumn Term 1

 

Year 1 Expectations

Reading at home is hugely beneficial for your child. There is no pressure to change your book every day, as rereading the books and discussing the story or information is great for your child’s comprehension.

When your child has read on 10 occasions, they will receive a prize so make sure that you record this in their reading record.

Phonics:

At the end of Year 1, the children are assessed using the National Phonics Screening Test. This is repeated in Year 2 for the children who did not achieve the appropriate level in Year 1. This assessment gathers information on the child’s ability to segment and blend decodable words. To learn more about how we teach phonics, please visit our phonics page under ‘Curriculum’.
