Long Term Plans – Year 1 2019-20

1 Armadillos are taught by Mrs Barker and Mrs Alvey.  Mrs Barker teaches on a Monday and a Tuesday and Mrs Alvey teaches Wednesday to Friday.  They will be assisted by Mrs Grayston.

1 Snow Leopards are taught by Miss Spalding and Mrs Wynne.  Miss Spalding teaches Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Wynne teaches Thursday and Friday.  They will be assisted by Mrs Clarke.

In Year 1 we have PE twice a week on Monday and Wednesday. Please can you ensure that your child has both indoor and outdoor kit which is clearly labelled. Your child should bring this into school on a Monday morning, leaving it in school all week and taking it home on a Friday.

Book bags also need to be brought into school every day. Your child will be provided with a reading record book which we ask you to fill in every time you read with your child. Should we need to make a comment about your child’s reading, we will do so in this book. There will be opportunities for your child to change their reading books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

We have a spelling test every Monday and this will be linked to our phonics sessions. The following week’s spellings will be included on the Year 1 weekly newsletter attached to this page. Please continue to practice your child’s spellings with them.

Both classrooms have exciting reading areas where children can read quietly and re-tell stories using the puppets. In addition to this, there are writing areas to explore and consolidate a range of writing genres.

Year 1 is the first year in Key Stage 1 and the children are learning to work more independently. The classroom environment is set up in a similar way to Upper Foundation Stage, allowing access to continuous provision for learning.

We have different areas of learning including a Science/investigation area, Small World and Role-Play. There are also designated Art and Design Technology areas.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
