Year 1 2023-24

Year One Teachers - Miss Welsh & Mrs Thompson

We have lots of support staff in Year One, including:

Miss Zeigler, Mrs Routledge, Mrs Kerr, Mrs Mckenzie, Mrs Sagar, Mrs Smith and Mrs Armstrong.

 

Welcome to the fabulous Year One Class! Can you believe we are entering the final term in Year One? Our Theme for Summer One is "THE GREAT OUTDOORS!" Our learning this half term will have an exciting Art & DT theme, which will involve us exploring Observational Drawings in Art, studying the artist "George Braque" and designing and making our very own "Teddy Chairs" for a Teddy Bears Picnic.  We will also be studying Science and History this half term too, looking at identifying and naming common materials, and we will also be delving into the History of Wetherby's previous train station. We will look at how transport has changed over time and describe the work of George Stephenson. 

 

 Homework expectations in Year One: Children are expected to read at least 3 times per week at home and practice their spellings on spelling shed / paper (below) at least 3 times a week. The children will receive 5 Dojo points for reading 3 times at home, and 5 Dojo points for practising their spellings 3 times. In total children can earn 10 extra points per week for completing their homework.

Spelling Quiz Day

 

How is the day structured in Year One?

WEEKLY SPELLINGS: In addition to weekly spellings, the children will also be able to practise Year 1 High Frequency Words on Spelling Shed from now until July, to ensure they are secure with spelling these in preparation for Year 2. Please note, we practise these regularly in our Phonics lessons so they won't be 'tested'.
