Anti-bullying week

Year one wore odd socks for anti-bullying week. During circle time we talked about what bullying is, what it might look like and what we can do if we witness bullying. We also discussed what makes a good friend and what would make a bad friend. Then we gave each other good friend certificates stating reasons why we are all good friends.

In Year One we have PE on a Tuesday morning. Please ensure children have a PE kit with both suitable indoor and outdoor kit. E.g. tracksuit and trainers. 




In Year One children are expected to read three times per week. Books are changed after children have read their book three times to improve their fluency. Please can children bring their reading books every day even if they haven't read it. 

Children will also be given phonics homework frequently. 

Throughout the year children will also receive  homework related to topic which will be more 'project' based. 



Here at Holy Family we pride ourselves on our smart appearances. Please ensure children come to school dressed appropriately and wearing correct school uniform. 


Current Topic: 

Our current topic is Enchanted Woodland. We are really enjoying exploring and discussing the different plants, trees and animals that live in the woods!  We are also going on a school trip to Sandall Beat Woods which will link beautifully with our topic. 



Home Learning: 



Please find below a link to the first 200 common exception words for Y1 and Y2. In order for Y1 children to achieve their age related expectations they should be able to read and spell the first 100 common exception words. 

Thank you for your continued support.  


Please also find a link to Y1 numeracy and literacy curriculum statements. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and ask. 



Thank you
