Heybrook Primary and Nursery

Heybrook Primary and Nursery School

YEAR 1

Welcome to Year 1.

The year 1 classes and teachers are:

Amber - Miss Nisar

Saffron - Mrs Dawson

Orange - Mrs Akhter

PE Days (Summer term)

Amber & Orange - Monday

Saffron - Tuesday

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school and that it is labelled with their name:

black leggings/shorts/tracksuit bottoms

- white T-shirt with the Heybrook logo on (this is provided by school)

- black pumps/trainers

 Please make sure your child's PE kit stays in school. We will send the kits home just before half term for them to be washed and returned. 

If your child has earrings in, please take them out beforehand. 

Wellies

We will be using the Forest School area throughout the year and kindly ask you to bring in some wellies for your child. These will be stored in school. We ask for wellies as this will avoid your child's school shoes from getting dirty. Please make sure that your child's name is clearly labelled on them.

Reading Records/Books 

All children in Year 1 have been given a reading book and a reading record. Please try to read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in the reading record. At the  front of the reading record, there are some prompts that are there to  help you ask your child some questions to help them retrieve (find) information from the book. We would like your child to bring the reading book and reading record into school daily so we can listen to them read. They should stay in your child's bag.

We have recently explored the book 'The Secret Sky Garden'. This focuses on a small girl called Funni who is determined to make an old car park clean and safe. 

Our new class book is 'Katie in London'.  

We complete a spelling test every Friday. Please support your child by practising their new spelling words.

Phonics

The children are currently focusing on phase 5 sounds. Please continue to support your child at home by recapping sounds. Please ask class teachers if you have any questions about phonics.

Children can practise their phonics on Phonics Play which has some free phonics games.
