In year one children will read once a week with their teacher in a guided session. They will then take part in a whole class guided reading lesson twice a week as well as one to one reading with teaching assistants and volunteers. When your child has finished a reading book, please write a comment to that effect (or your initials) in the school planner. We aim to give your child the opportunity to change his/her book most days.
Year One children have a whole class daily 25 minute phonics session. Each Monday, this involves a spelling quiz based upon the previous week’s learning and the children receive their new spellings.
