Dream Believe Achieve
Welcome to Year 1
Year 1 teacher: Miss Chigara
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bamford
Homework will be given out on Friday each week and is due back by Wednesday of the following week.
Children will be given: spellings and either a phonics or maths activity to complete. If children need help with their homework could you please let us know by Monday and they can attend the homework club at lunch-time.
The spelling test will take place on a Friday afternoon. Children who get full marks will receive a prize!
Each week children will be expected to:
▪ Practise and learn spellings
▪ Read each night
▪ Practise and learn tables (2, 5 and 10)
At the beginning of every half term a topic based project will be given out. This half term our topic is Toys. Children (and parents) need to ‘earn’ 10 POWer Points. You can choose any of the tasks to complete and do them in any order. When children have completed a task they should bring it to school. Each half term, work will be chosen from different classes to ‘show off’ in our good work assembly. By all means go over the 10 points.
At Court Farm we follow the RWI phonics scheme. In the summer term all children will take the Phonics Screening Test.
