Year 1 – Teerlinc – Ms Elis-Williams/Mrs Townson
Welcome to Teerlinc’s class page.
In Year 1 it is vital to hear your child read daily. We are building on the phonic knowledge learnt in Reception to become fluent readers. We encourage children to carefully sound out unknown words and blend them together to read accurately. This skill will aid them to succeed in their end of year phonic assessment. Asking your child to predict and retell aspects of the story will deepen their knowledge of the text to ensure they are reading for meaning.
In addition to reading their reading books a fantastic website is www.phonicsplay.com which has some super interactive phonics games.
Reading to your child is still important too, to share the enjoyment and love of books.
We have Physical Education every Monday and Thursday morning. Please ensure children come to school wearing their PE kit, as they currently are not getting changed in school. Please ensure the children have warmer layers to wear outside.
Each child will receive up to 6 spellings to learn each week. These will posted on Google Classroom every Thursday. The children will then be ‘quizzed’ the following week. Please help your child to practice these regularly. You may also play games with the words, such as, making a pairs game, air writing, bingo games etc.
There will also be a maths task set each week.
