Croeso i flwyddyn 1!
Information about Year 1
We are very excited to welcome you back to school, in these unusual times we cannot invite parents into school.
Readiwriter and Numbots
In the front of your child's reading log they have a login for both Readiwriter and Numbots. These are great resources to help your child with reading, spelling and mental maths.
Readiwriter- We ask that your child gain 500 points per week on Readiwriter. If they gain 1000 points they do get a dojo for going above and beyond.
Numbots- We ask that your child has a go on this each week. If the gain 1000 points we will also give a dojo for extra effort.
Reading books will be changed on Mondays starting on 14th September. Please return your child’s reading book and reading log each Friday in their book bag. Unfortunately, with the current times we cannot send reading books home over the weekend. However, feel free to use your child’s own books to continue reading with them. Please aim to read with your child every weeknight if you can (even if it's just one or two pages). The more you read, the better!
Once your child has finished their book it would be great if you could ask them questions about it, this will help to develop their comprehension skills. Every time you hear your child read please can you make a note in their reading diary.
Reading regularly helps your child to develop their confidence and love of
reading, their phonic knowledge and it also supports their writing.
Please note that we will read a different school book with your child during the week.
Your child has been given a Learning Log, which will be used throughout the year for homework. Please see the inside of the Learning Log front cover for how this will be used. Learning Logs will be sent home Friday 11th September and are to be kept at home until the last Monday of half term.
We would like the work to be that of your child. We would much rather see a few handwritten sentences that they have written themselves, rather than lots of printed text that they don't understand and/or can't read back. Any concerns please email.
Please use Google Classroom to see and submit homework tasks.
PE is on Monday and Wednesday.
Please send your child into school wearing their full PE kit on these days.
If your child has their ears pierced, please ensure they are removed on PE days.
We will supply water bottles.
This year the children will have a 'continuous snack' time, this means that they can have their snack during any part of the morning when they would like it.
Unless your child has paid to have school fruit this half term, please send them into school each day with a piece of fruit to eat for their snack. This is to be kept in their lunchboxes.
This year at Ewloe Green, we are trialling a new cursive handwriting scheme. The above document shows the formation animals we will be using and rhymes that we will use to assist the children to learn and remember the correct letter formation. We will be teaching the children a letter a week in the order of the letters on the document. This half term we will begin by working through the 'ladder' family.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to email.
Thank you for your continued support!
