Year 1 2020 - 2021

Mrs Coyne

Year One teacher

Mrs Wisinger

Year One Teacher

Welcome to Year One with Mrs Coyne, Mrs Wisigner and Mr Jones.

The children have made a fantastic start back to Year 1, thank you for helping them with their new routine. We have kept children in their familar colour groups to ensure their smooth transition into their new classroom. 

We have worked together with Miss Vaughan to create a learning environment which reflects that of Highfield's Early Years Provision. We hope that this will give the children the opportunity to extend their learning through carefully designed continuous provision activities when not working on a focussed job with a Teacher.

Our initial text for Autumn 1 is Paper Planes by Jim Helmore and Richard Jones.

Paper Planes

We will be delving into the text using Rebecca Bell's Story Box Ritual which children are familiar with from Reception. We will explore the text through drama, vocabulary work and meeting the characters when we enter story world.

Book Changing

Diaries and reading books will be collected in on Wednesdays and new books given out on Fridays. Thank you for supporting your child with their five reads. The new books are designed to ensure children have a sound understanding of their phonics and have the opportuity to discuss new vocabulary with you.

Things to remember in Year 1:

  • P.E is on Mondays and Fridays with Mr Forbes.
  • Try for five reads each week.
  • Homework due Wednesdays and given out on Fridays.
