Year 1 Reading Spine:
We have carefully selected these books which we will read with Year 1 over the course of the year. The books link with our wider curriculum learning, expose children to fantastic writing and represent the many cultures in our community.
Year 1 Knowledge Organisers
Our knowledge organisers give a detailed summary of what your child is learning in history, geography and science. They are a very useful tool to help you ask your child about what they have learnt in school.
Click on the image below to access copies of the knowledge organisers for Geograhy (Where in the World) and Science (Animals including Humans) this half term.
These are the images the children will recognise when learning sounds in Phonics. This is from the Read Write Inc. scheme. If you click on the below image, it will take you to the RWI YouTube channel where there are many videos that can aid learning at home. Please also read the phonics book your child has in their bag as this matches the current level they are working at.
Your child has a Read Write Inc. reading book in their bag which matches the phonics level they are learning at school. When working at home with your child, please practise learning how to read and spell these words.
