Year 1 at St Matthews Catholic Primary School
A very warm welcome to Year 1. We hope your child’s year is exciting, positive and full of learning and achievement. In year 1, we always work hard, persevere and try our best. If you have any suggestions, comments or concerns please send a message via ClassDojo or make an appointment via the School Office.
Miss Donaldson – Class Teacher
Mrs O’Reilly – Teaching Assistant (Monday – Wednesday)
In year 1, your children will be provided with weekly spellings. These will be given on a Monday and tested on a Thursday. Children will be given homework on a Friday, which is due in on Wednesday. This homework will be a mixture of Maths, English, Science and Topic and will be used to consolidate our learning. On occasion, your child may also have a project to complete linking to our topics.
As part of our study of our RWI phonics, your child will read daily in class to their teacher, themselves and their peers. Weekly RWI books will be sent home to consolidate sounds that we have been learning.
Your child will also bring a library book home to share with their family, which they have chosen from our class library. Books will be changed every Friday.
Please make sure your child brings their reading book and yellow reading log to school every day.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school. Year 1 have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. During the autumn and spring term, please ensure your child has an outdoor PE kit and suitable footwear.
You can find out what we have been up to in year 1 on our class story. This will be updated regularly, with posts and photos. Class Dojo can also be used for general messages and information.
