Phonics is hugely important in Year 1!
Following on from Reception, the children will be sent home with a reading book and a Phonics pack.
Please practise every night with your child in preparation for the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test.
Home reading is crucial for your child's development in all areas of the curriculum and it's great fun too :)

Home Learning Timetable
Below is an attached PDF document of a 'Home Learning Timetable' that I have created. It is a guide to help your child learn and structure your family's day while schools are closed. Please note, it is only a guide and as a parent/carer you know what is best and the realistic expectations of your child!
Hope this helps.

Sponsored Walk
Year 1 did a sponsored walk around the playground, to raise money for The Good Shepherd Appeal, helping children and young people in our local communities.
The children did 10 laps around the school playground! They had such a great time doing it!
Thank you to all those who have donated money for a good cause.

Thankyou Year 4
Donna from EMTAS came to visit Year 1 today. She told us  all about RAINBOW SMILES.
We found out that we are all unique and as different as the colours of a rainbow.Image result for IMAGE OF RAINBOW SMILES
We met a puppet who was called ROY G BIV and this helps us to remember the Rainbow colours in the correct order.
Rainbow Smiles helped us to recognise that we must always  be the best we can be.  Donna told us that we can all develop, learn , achieve and excel just by showing kindness to everyone. 
Thank you Donna for a great FUN day!
