Welcome to 1c
Class Teacher: Mrs Carey
Teaching Assistant: Miss Griffiths / Ms Magee
Whilst our class isolates at home, please continue to access as much learning as you can. I will be setting daily Maths, English and Phonics tasks on Purple Mash. Your children have brought their login details home with them today (these can be found on the first page of their reading log).
Reading - Every child has been given a reading book, please listen to your child read this at least 3 times and log any successes as well as challenges that your child faces along the way. There are a variety of activities in both the front and the back cover of their reading books to aid reading and comprehension skills. This is a good opportunity for your children to also practise reading and spelling the tricky words that are in the back of their reading record.
Please see below some helpful websites that your children can use to further their learning.
- Homework is on a needs basis and will go out on Fridays via Purple Mash online learning.Your child's username and password will be located on the first page of their reading record.
- Spellings go out on TBA and will be tested the following TBA
- Reading books will be changed and given out every Thursday and collected in every Monday. In order to allow for quarantining and sanitising of books, books will not be changed daily for the time being. Please read every night with your child.
Code of Conduct:
We will be looking at three character traits: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. Any children following our code of conduct will be presented with ‘Dojo points’ which will enable them to receive a reward. Any children breaking any part of the code of conduct will be given a warning, which may be followed by a sanction. At TPS we have a code of conduct that all children are expected to follow. We need your support to implement this.

We are very excited to be introducing ‘Woodland Learning’, where children will be learning a range of new skills in our forest every week. Our session is on a Friday morning and we would like the children to make the most of every session whatever the weather, so they will need to be appropriately dressed. Please make sure your child wears a tracksuit on your ‘Woodland Learning Day’: They will also need to bring in waterproof clothes in a waterproof, draw-string bag and wellington boots. As the weather becomes colder, they may also want to bring an extra jumper/fleece, an extra pair of warm socks, waterproof gloves and a warm hat.
P.E is Monday (outdoor) and Tuesday (indoor). It is essential that your child wears appropriate clothing for P.E. It is advised that you wear maroon jogging bottoms and a school jumper for the outside session. For the indoor session, you must wear black shorts and burgundy t-shirt. Black pumps or trainers must be worn for both sessions. Girls may also need to have a pair of socks to put on if they wear tights for school. Please ensure your child comes dressed in their PE kit on these day. As we have Woodland Learning as well as PE on a Tuesday, please just dress in your Woodland Leadning clothes,
How to help at home:
- Practise 2,5 and 10 times tables in the first instance and continue to practice counting in 1s up to 100 and backwards to 0.
- Challenge your child to complete activities on Purple Mash on a device at home as often as possible.
- Practise reading and spelling Year 1 common exception words as regularly as possible (see link in files). These are the words that all Year 1 children MUST be able to read and spell by the end of the academic year. We have also uploaded the key words from Reception as these may need to be revised. You will find these words also in the back of your child's reading record. Please help your child to read these words.
- Read with your child every night when possible or at least 3 times every week. The more you to read with your child, the better, especially as they have missed a lot of school. Daily readers will be rewarded for their commitment.
Teach your Monster to read app is fantastic to help your child with reading and developing phonic knowledge.
