Year 1

Hello Year 1



Please remember to hear your child read their reading book 5 times a week. Almost everyone got a new book last week.

Last week we went on a Bear Hunt

We have read We're Going on a Bear Hunt and We're Going on a Lion Hunt. We are now writing our own Pet Hunt story.



We are learning about parts and wholes. If the whole is 6 then what can the parts be?


At Puss Bank School and Nursery, we use the phonic scheme Little Wandle Revised Letters and Sounds to teach phonics. 

Please follow the link here to gain access to the Little Wandle Parent Information section on their website.


We are learning our new graphemes

ay, ou (cloud), oy and ea (seat)


Tricky words

Practise reading: said, come, some, here, there, were, where, like, love, have, little, says, today


Phase 3

This Phase 3 sounds taught in Reception Spring 1 video is designed to be shared with families to help them support the learning at home.

Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic development remains a key part of our everyday learning as well as specific learning.


We are exploring our new strategy for self-regulation and behaviour - ZONES of Regulation.

PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please make sure earrings are out and you have your PE kits in school.





We are not starting to think about the use of computers - they sort information.

We are representing data as a pictogram. Try collecting your own data and making a pictogram on 2 Count (set as a 2Do on Purple Mash)




At Puss Bank, we believe learning to read is the gateway to all learning. 

All children will their reading book weekly, after having read it with their teacher 3 times. They will need to practise reading this book between 3-5 times a week to read it without sounding and with fluency and understanding of vocabulary and story/topic. There will be information in the organiser about the focuses for reading - sounds, words and understanding.


Play-based Learning

We will continue to practise our learning through carefully planned play based continuous provision.
