Welcome to Year 1

Mrs Wragg has put together a document and PowerPoint to help prepare children for the transition back to school. If your child is coming back after half term, please do take the time to go through this with them to help prepare them. The first document is also relevant to children who will remain at home. We will be checking email over the week, so if you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch.

Will is rain tonight?

Did you get it right?

Maths Year 1 Assessment

Below is a Year 1 maths assessment with great questions to assess where you child is at in their Maths. This is a SUMMER test and children should be able to answer these styles of questions by the end of the school year. If you are looking to do some maths work with your child at home, have a go at some of the questions and work on any questions they struggle to answer.

Reading: Oxford Owl

The link below takes you to the website 'Oxford Owl' which has hundreds of free e-books for children to read. You can select a suitable book using the coloured book bands that we have in school. They also have a range of free phonics books, teaching slideshows and Read Write Inc phonics worksheets to support your child with their phonics learning. I'm really impressed with their selection so please use these excellent free resources. Unfortunately we are unable to let children into the school to swap books so this is a great alternative.

Knowledge Organisers

Our knowledge organisers for this half term.

A knowledge organiser contains key facts and information that children need to have the basic understanding of a topic. The Woodham Ley Knowledge organisers will always have the following features which will help teachers and parents to know how well the children know their topic:

  • What children should already know
  • Agreed Outcomes - What their final 'product' will be at the end of the topic 
  • A list of the minimum knowledge I should know at the end of the topic
  • 'Vocabulary 12' - twelve words or phrases that children should understand by the end of the topic. Children should be able to describe the meaning of these twelve words.
  • Questions and answers - by the end of the topic, children should be able to answer the questions on the back of the knowledge organiser. This will help us to assess the children's understanding of the topic and how much information they have retained. 

Science - Plants

Geography - The United Kingdom

We will be choosing two superstars every Friday afternoon who have particularly impressed us with a piece of independent work at home. We miss being able to award achievement certificates at school so we thought this would be a great alternative to show how much we appreciate the effort that is being made by the children at home.

This young lady has been chosen to be our Star of the Week today. Since home learning began, she has been working hard and sending us lots of photos that show us she is completing the work we set and also doing lots of lovely activities with her family.  We feel this consistent engagement and enthusiasm should be celebrated! Well done.

This young man has been also chosen for his hard work at home. He has consistently done his work, persevering when things have been hard, and particular mention must be made of his maths work. He has been so enthusiastic and has even asked for more work - the progress you have made is fantastic! Well done

Here is our journey so far in Year 1...

Our morning at Alton Garden Centre. We planted pots for the 'Greenfingers' charity. When we returned to school we created observational drawings of the different garden plants.

Our photo gallery of our amazing trip to the Sealife Centre and the beach! We discovered lots of facts about sealife in the oceans and how we can protect the ocean from pollution. We helped out community by litter-picking on the beach and treated ourselves to an icecream afterwards!

Our group photo from our exciting trip to the Palace Theatre where we saw 'Cinderella' being performed on stage! We even got to meet the characters at the end and had a group photo with Cinderella and the Prince. Children then made vehicles in DT to help Cinderella get to the ball and we learnt about the history of different modes of transport.

Photos from our amazing KS1 Nativity. (full video to be sent home soon!)
