Welcome back Year One, we are so happy to be learning in the classroom and beginning a fantastic Autumn Term!
We will be really concentrating on developing our School Intents this half-term.
Who can show Resilience?
Who is Creative?
Who isn't afraid of trying new Experiences?
Who can build on Prior Learning?
Let us Enquire together work both Independently and Collaboratively!
Our first topic is about autumn. If you find any autumn objects on the way to school we would love to see them!

►Reading - Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that the planner is signed by an adult. Alongside this, it is also key that all children select their own reading for pleasure book which they will also have opportunities to read and share with others in school. I can't wait to hear about all the 'Recommended Reads' from each of the children and any new vocabulary which they may have collected on their reading journeys.
►Phonics- In Year 1 children will receive regular phonics homework and sounds to learn at home based on which sounds they are currently learning at School. It is also key that the children understand any new words met and can apply into their writing as well as being able to read them. It would be lovely for children to practice any new sounds they have written and form words and then sentences using them. All written homework must be presented to the highest standard.
►Homework - All children will be given weekly English or Maths homework. This is to be sent home on a Wednesday and returned to school on a Monday.
►PE - PE will take place every Wednesday and Friday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black shorts. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate in this key subject.
