Visual Reality Workshop!

What a wonderful experience! The children had a fantastic time exploring space. Through visual reality headsets the children were able to visit different planets and see our solar system. They loved it!

Important Information:

PE:

PE will be on Tuesdays. Please can PE kit be in school at all times. We will ensure the kit is sent home at the holidays to be washed; please can it be returned to school on the first day back.

Forest School: 

Our Forest School sessions are on a Thursday each week. Please ensure Forest School kit is worn to school on Thursday mornings. Your child will bring in their uniform in a separate bag. This will mean children will get more time outside in the Forest School area!

Homework:

Homework goes home every Friday and must be completed and returned the following the Friday. Homework consists of daily reading logged in their home-school reading diary, a Maths Facts game/activity and a set of spelling words to learn. These spellings link with the Year 1 tricky word list and the sound of the week. Children are tested on these spellings every Friday.

 Phonics and the National Screening Check

What is the Year 1 phonics screening check?

The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics.

What does it check?

It checks that your child can:

  • Sound out and blend graphemes/sounds in order to read simple words.
  • Read phonically decodable one-syllable and two-syllable words, e.g. cat, sand, windmill.
  • Read a selection of nonsense words which are referred to as pseudo/alien words

What are alien words?               

These are words that are phonically decodable but are not actual words with an associated meaning e.g. brip, snorb. Alien words are included in the check specifically to assess whether your child can decode a word using phonics skills and not their memory.
