Welcome to Team 1! We make learning as fun as possible to engage every child. We do lots of hands on learning to improve maths and use lots of imagination to improve our writing. We have lots of fun with phonics to improve our reading by learning and recognising new sounds.

 

See us on Twitter for more exciting learning updates.

Reading

We read with children in school where we provide opportunities to read a variety of books by different authors, both fiction and non-fiction. We provide strategies for reading tricky words and provide support in answering comprehension and inferential questions about what we have read.

Please read with your child 5 times per week and record every read in their Reading Record. 

Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis.

 

In Team 1 your child will learn all about phonics, sounds will be sent home weekly to help your child practise. Please support your child with phonics by using the links below:

Writing

We follow an author spine to enable broad and exciting experiences of many diverse authors. We use these authors to inspire our writing of stories, poems, instructions, letters…and many more!

Spellings are given out every week on a Friday, to be tested the following Friday. 

 

Maths

We use lots of hand on resources in our maths to help our children grasp new concepts, before progressing onto pictorial representations, followed by abstract representations.
