Learning Together, Growing Together

Class 1W

Welcome to 1W - Miss Woods and Mrs Lekal


We are delighted to welcome you to our class page and tell you a little about what we have been learning in 1W!


The children have settled in nicely to year 1 life.


In Maths we are building our basic skills, looking at numbers and practising our counting. We have looked for patterns on the 100 number square and the children are becoming really good at counting both forwards and backwards to help us add and take away. 


In English the children are continuing to build on their reading, writing and phonics skills from reception. We are currently learning to write captions and labels and are using these skills in our other subjects too, the children did a fantastic job of labeling the human body in Science as part of our topic animals including humans. 


We will be updating this page soon to keep you informed of all the exciting learning we do in year 1! 


Our week in year 1:


We try to read with all the children on either Monday or Tuesday. The bookbags are kept in school overnight on Monday evenings.  


We have P.E with our school sports coaches on Mondays.  children require a full P.E. kit which is sent home at the end of each half term. 



On Tuesday we will send home your child's new reading book for you to read and enjoy with your child at home.



We have library on a Wednesday where the children can choose their own book and take it home for a week. Please ensure your child's book is returned on the following Wednesday so they are able to choose a new book. 



On Thursday we have a praise assembly to celebrate the children's achievements.



On Friday Learning together sheets are sent home with lots of information on what we have been up to in class during our week. There are also some fun activities for you to try at home with your child if you wish.
