End of Year Expectations

Learn about the skills and knowledge that we hope your child will develop in literacy and maths by the end of this year. If they achieve these goals, they will be 'working at age-related expectations'.

The Phonics Screening Check shows how well your child can use the phonics skills they’ve learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify students who need extra phonics help. The Department for Education defines the checks as “short, light-touch assessments”.

The checks consist of 40 words and non-words that your child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. Non-words (or nonsense words, or pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but don’t mean anything – your child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them.

The Phonics Screening Check takes place in June.

We are writers!

Year 1 have been working hard at developing their writing this year. Come and join us in the classroom so the children can show you their wonderful writing presented in their topic books.  We will be sending out an invitation soon so watch this space!

Plants and Trees!

We will enjoy spending time outdoors during our science lessons this half term. We will be identifying and naming types of trees and wild plants. Can you find and identify any wild plants on your way to school?

Spellings will be given out with homework and tested on a Friday.

We recommend that you read regularly with your child at home and use the reading record to record this. To develop your child's reading, please read a range of fiction and non-fiction texts together and independently.

It's 'Good to be Green'

The ‘Good to be Green scheme is an effective way of promoting positive behaviour, rewarding those pupils who consistently behave appropriately, and is a means of being able to track those pupils who find it harder to meet the school’s expected behaviour.

The scheme is very visual, with child friendly resources which allow our pupils to easily see how they are doing in class. We believe that it is important to promote a positive message regarding behaviour management at all times- ‘Good to be Green’ is a means of promoting our high expectations of positive behaviour. If a child has not had a good day, they can start afresh the following day.
