Year 1

A+ R A-
 
Reading and phonics 
 
Reading is very important in Year One. Please make sure your child reads regularly at home to an adult. Your child will be heard read each day, either in a guided reading group or independently.  In the classroom there are 2 baskets for reading books; a basket for books that need changed, and a basket for books to be kept. Please make sure your child brings their books to school daily.
 
We are starting the Autumn term by re-capping phase 3 phonics, and learning some new sounds. We will send copies of these sounds home for you to practise with your child.

 Children will continue to learn the first 200 high frequency words, and will learn new tricky words each week. High frequency words will still be sent home for spelling practise each Friday. Children will continue to practise writing these words into sentences, making sure they are spelled correctly.
