Westminster - Year 1 2023 - 2024

Ms Pearson

Welcome to Westminster Class; the home of Year 1! 

Our topic this term will be The Carousel of Progress. We will be learning all about the history of transport and comparing the geography of our local area with other places around the world.

As scientists, we will be investigating and learning about plants and seasonal changes.

Ms Pearson will be teaching Year 1 Tuesday -Friday and Mrs Birtwistle will be teaching Year 1 on Mondays.  

Westminster Reading

Children's books will be changed on a Monday when they have finished reading their current books. Each child can choose up to 4 books to take home at one time and they will be given a phonetically decodable book by their teacher.  The decodeable book should be read multiple times to help develop fluency and expression. If, over the course of the week, your child reads all 5 books, their reading should be supplemented with books from home. For some children reading longer books, the expectation isn't to read all 5 books and should change just those which have been completed.

Reading Records will be monitored regularly and they remain a very good way to communicate messages from home. 

Westminster PE Sessions

This term PE will be on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. 

Outdoor learning

This term our outdoor learning session will be on a Wednesday afternoon. The first session of the new academic year will be on Wednesday 13th September. 

Please ensure children are bringing appropriate clothing and footwear every Wednesday.  

Home Learning

Later on in the term, the children will be bringing home spellings to learn. These will be linked to their phonics learning in school and will be tested on a Friday. Also on a Friday, the children will completing a simple '10 in 10' maths activity reinforcing number bonds and maths learning.
