Meet the teacher - September 2022

Welcome Year 1 to our webpage! 

 

 

We are continuing to use TAPESTRY in Year 1 so please communicate with us via the app or website. We regularly look at Tapestry so will respond quickly. 

You can also contact your class teacher at homework_y1@ryvers.slough.sch.uk  if you have a question or would like to share one or two of your learning activities with us or just to say hello! Please include your name and class in the subject line.

 

 

Soft start

Please remember we do not line up in the mornings. Children get dropped off on the KS1 playground. Please make sure you come all the way round to the KS1 playground so that a member of staff can see your child/ren.

Reminder: do not drop them off on the basketball court. Please walk all of the way.

Once the children come in and wash their hands, they start an early morning activity.

Soft start is from 8:35am-8:50am

Registration starts at 8:50am

Tapestry

In Year 1 we will continue to use Tapestry. We will not be posting on there as often but please keep looking at it for updates, posts and information. We will use Tapestry for homework too. Please feel free to upload your own posts from home...your class teacher would love to see what amazing learning you are doing at home! This is also a great way to show evidence for your activity passport.

Reading

Reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Children will be given a new yellow reading diary. When you have read with your child at home, please sign this diary.

Please read with your child every day and ensure their reading planner is in school every day so that KS1 staff may check their planner.

PE

PE will be on Thursday for all classes. Children should come in to school wearing their PE kit please. All jewellery to be removed on Thursday for PE and long hair must be tied back.

Homework

Homework is set each Friday and is due back on Tapestry the following Wednesday. Please upload homework onto Tapestry for your class teacher to see.

In line with school policy each activity should take the following amount of time:-

Reading 10-15 minutes daily

Spelling 10 minutes weekly (tested the following Thursday)

English 20 minutes weekly

Maths 20 minutes weekly 

If your child is struggling to complete their homework in this time, please speak to your class teacher.  

Remember, once you have your logins, you should also spend some time everyday on:-

-Numbots & TTRS

-Nessy (if you have a login) for 20 minutes

Cracking Number Facts (these will not start until Spring term)

Cracking Number Facts are tested weekly with a two-minute test.  Results are given to the children and if a level is passed then a certificate will be sent home.  Please note we do not send home completed sheets. If you have any questions please ask your class teacher!

Please refer to the 'parent guide cracking number facts'

 

Important Reminders

  • Children must bring in a labelled water bottle every day
  • Children must bring in uniform (e.g. jumpers) that are labelled. No name-no claim!
  • Children must bring their planners in daily and try to read at home every evening
  • All dinner money and school trips should now be paid through Parent Pay
  • We do ask that on non-uniform days children still wear school shoes. No boots or strappy sandals

Phonics:

                                                                                  

At Ryvers Primary School, we now have a new phonics scheme called Little Wandle Letters and Sounds 

Please visit:

https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/

The resources on this page will help you support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home. Find their Year 1 teaching programme overview here to see what your child will learn and when.

Activity Passports

 

Each year group has its own list of around twenty activities, which works out at about 7 per term. They can be done in any order. The majority of these activities will cost little or nothing to complete. When your child has completed an activity, then please let the class teacher know by showing a photograph, ticket or postcard etc. At the end of the year, we will award bronze, silver or gold certificates according to the number of activities each child has completed. Good luck Year 1! Who will win a gold certificate?!
