My name is Mrs Pollock and I teach Year 1, Mrs Dawson our Teaching Assistant supports the class with me.
We have PE on Monday and Thursday, please keep your kit in school for those days. The reading books go home on Tuesday evening, and I send homework every Friday to be completed for the following Friday.
Please check this page and the schools Twitter page for regular updates about what we get up to in Year 1!
In English, we have been reading the Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl. We have had lots of fabulous writing, with the children first predicting what they the thought the story was about using just the front cover illustration as a clue. After we read the story together, the children created some very detailed story maps to support their writing. Finally the children retold the story, but with a twist, changing the main character to an animal of their choice!
The children had great fun dressing up as their favourite Roald Dahl character and taking part in lots of activities to celebrate Roald Dahl's 102nd birthday.
The topic for PE this term is dance. The children are really enjoying their weekly session with Leeds Rhinos and are developing their skills in dance, rhythm and movement.
The children are currently working on Phase 4 of Floppy's Phonics Sounds and Letters. Below are links to webpages with phonics games and activities you can play with your child to support their learning.
Common Exception Words (CEW) are words which are used frequently but that do not follow the common phonetic spelling rules. For example: the, of, because. The link below will take you to the list of common exception words your child will learn how to read and spell in Year 1.
