Welcome to Year 1
Why encourage Reading?
Regular reading and listening to stories at bedtime has a clear link to success at school in all areas of the curriculum. Albert Einstein was once asked by a mother what she could do to help her son to be successful. His reply was to read fairy tales. When she explained that she hoped her son would become a scientist like Einstein his reply was to read more fairy tales. The most important thing you can do to support your child at home is to read to them and listen to them read.
English and topic: We will continue to explore fairy tale characters and write character descriptions for the characters we design.
Maths: We will continue to develop our knowledge of subtraction.
