Year 1 2020 - 2021

Welcome to 1C

Class Teacher: Mrs Carey

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Donaldson (shared across both year 1 classes) and Ms Magee (1:1 support)

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.

Class expectations 

  • Spellings go out every Monday and will be tested the following Monday
  • Reading books will be changed and given out every Thursday. 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
  • We have joined a new, exciting online reading scheme called Bug Club that is aligned to your child's reading level. The books are the same as the ones that we have in school. You can access Bug Club on this

TT Rock stars/Numbots

Children should be spending a minimum of 10 minutes a day on Time Table Rockstars/Numbots. Each week there will be inter- year group competitions with certificates being awarded to the week’s best performer.

Woodland Learning

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 Thursday afternoon 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. The children will be dismissed from the woodland learning area on this day.


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 Learning 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 Times tables Rock stars and Numbots 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.
