Autumn 1 Learning

I hope you have all had a lovely summer break and are excited to be moving into Year 1. I’m so looking forward to the adventures that we will have together over the coming months.

In Sparrows team this year we will have Mrs Hall plus Mrs Burrows who will be working with us each morning. Mrs Austin and Mrs Harvey will also be joining us on a Monday afternoon. 

Phonics will be taught daily in Year 1. We will continue to recap Phase 3 digraphs and Phase 4 blends whilst also moving on to teaching Phase 5 phonics.

Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due the following Wednesday. This will all be online and will be one piece of Maths and Phonics per week. Please also ensure that you continue to read with your child daily for 5-10 minutes as this is essential in supporting their fluency, comprehension and love of reading. 

P.E will be taught twice a week, on Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has the correct kit and trainers for these sessions. As it starts to get colder, it is advisable that the children bring jogging bottoms, a warm zip up hoodie / jumper, a hat and gloves for when we go outside for P.E. plus their usual blue shorts and white t-shirt for indoor lessons. P.E kits will be sent home each Friday to be washed and returned on the following Monday. Please ensure that all PE kits, and sweatshirts, are named so that they return to their rightful owners. Could you also ensure that children bring their water bottle to school each day.


We are lucky to once again have an outside space that is solely for our use. In order to make the most of this space we would like all children to have their own waterproofs and wellies in school. This will mean that regardless of the weather they will be able to enjoy time outside. Please provide your child with a pair of waterproof overalls or trousers and a jacket plus a pair of wellies that can remain in school. 


Please continue to check our Twitter account to keep up to date with our activities.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
