Spring 1 Term already!
Welcome to Spring Term! The children have returned from the Christmas break ready and raring to learn. Some children have now begun to bring home spellings; please help your child learn these ready for the practise on a Friday. If your child is bringing home sounds, again please help them learn these ready for a Friday.
We have very exciting topics this half term with our History combined with English. The children are loving learning about Pompeii and will be learning about The Great Fire of London. Please ask them about their learning.
Thank you for all the support at home, it is important to continue practising the phonics sounds and helping spot those when reading. Please continue to support your child at home and ensure you read daily with them. Happy reading!
Please, if you have any concerns do not hesitate to contact me. Mrs De Carteret

Welcome to Year 1!
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to send a message to the class email account. Mrs De Carteret
Mrs De Carteret, Miss Andrews, Mrs Holderness and Mrs Polli welcome you all to Year 1.
We warmly welcome you all to our class page and hope you will find everything you need. These pages will be updated regularly with information, photographs and descriptions of the wonderful work the children are doing in our Year 1 classroom. Please follow the links below. You will also find links to useful websites which include educational information and games.
Many subjects, for example English, Maths and Phonics are taught daily. Our class themes will be changed half termly and Science, Art, DT, History, Geography and Computing will be taught through cross-curricular themes including themed days and weeks. Please see our Long Term Overview in the Planning section.
Individual reading books will be changed three times per week and sent home for you to share together. These will be suitable for the level at which your child is reading. Please continue to read daily, spending time to talk about each story. We want your child to develop a love for reading and we work hard in partnership with yourselves to develop pupils confidence and enjoyment of reading. Please encourage your child to sound out each unfamiliar word if it is phonically decodeable. Children should be encouraged to recognise tricky words and high frequency words on sight.
Mathematics is taught in a variety of ways, encouraging children to develop strategies to work both mentally and solve problems. I will send home a letter to log onto 'My Maths' which will enable the children to log on and complete homework tasks where possible.
P.E. sessions take place twice a week. On Tuesday mornings we have Yoga led by Miss Danielle. On Wednesday afternoons we have PE with our Sports Specialist, Mr Luca. PE kits should be brought into school and should remain in school.
Please ensure all items of school clothing are clearly marked with your child's name.
If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact me on our class email at EMYear1@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk
