Growing with Jesus

Welcome to Year 1's Website


Homework  - Set Friday 13th September to be handed in Tuesday 24th September 


English   Do you have a favourite story book? Write a few sentences about the story or draw a picture. Don’t forget to tell me the title and author of the book. You may bring the book into school to share during story time. 


Reading  Practice your reading for 10 minutes each night. Please also continue to use bug club to give the children an opportunity to read a variety of books online. Your username and passwords are at the front of your homework book.


Spelling  I have given the children a list of spellings to practice this week. Have a go at copying them three times on the sheet and practice reading them aloud. Challenge - Can you write each of these words into a sentence, remembering your capital letters and full stops? 


Maths   - We have started our Place Value topic in Maths. For homework, the children have been asked to work out and draw one more and one less of the amount given. Challenge -  Can the children write the addition and subtraction questions that relate to each question. E.g. 7+1 = 8, 7 - 1 = 6


RE - Try to learn the Grow with Me prayer which we say each morning together and the Our Father prayer which the children need to know in Year 1. Please share with your child the TenTen newsletter that should be available on the school website. 



Our first week in Year 1


We have been busy in Year 1 over the past couple of days getting to know our new teacher and teaching assistant, discovering the new routines we have throughout the day and already learning new and exciting things. The children worked as a class to decide what our new rules will be in Year 1. They decided that the following rules were important to follow in school in order to have a fun year. 


Be kind to everyone

Speak nicely

Put up your hand if you want to speak 

Always tell the truth 

Take it in turns 

Play kindly with your friends  

Help people when they are stuck
