Handwriting in Year One
We have started to introduce pupils to the pre- cursive style of handwriting. I have attached our handwriting policy that outlines the order that the letters are taught. I have also attached various resources if you would like to practise at home. As you have seen spellings are sent home that model the letter formation. Please feel free to ask any questions if you would like further support.
Thank you all for your support in helping your child and myself settle into the new school year, I really appreciate it. I hope the newsletter sent out last week provided you with enough information to answer any questions. I thought I would just go through a few routines with you, please see below. We are slowly building our new routines into the week so please bear with us whilst we do this.
I will hear your child read once a week during a Guided Reading session starting from next week. We will aim to hear your child read individually at least once a week but will ask your child each day if their book needs changing. Please just ask or remind me if your child forgets to ask to change their book. Thank you.
The Year 1 Reading Targets have been stuck in the back of your child's Reading Record. You can use these to help support your child with their reading.
Your child has a set day that their Maths Facts will be tested. If for some reason or another this isn't done on the day said will will aim to do it the next day or by the end of the week. Year One don't start Times Tables Rock stars until Year 2 as our main focus is gaining confidence with the Year One Maths Facts.
Please just ask if you have any questions or I can support you in any way.
