Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1:
Beegu and Gingerbread Man Class


The class teacher in Beegu class is Miss Proctor and
Miss Adams is teaching inGingerbread Man class.

We have a very exciting year ahead of us, including lots of fantastic topics and fun trips.

Our PE lessons take place across the week. Gingerbread Man Class have their lessons on a Tuesday and Wednesday whereas Beegu Class have theirs on a Thursday and a Friday. Please ensure that your child has the correct HPACYP PE kit in school on these days.

The children will be learning music all year with our specialist music teacher. They will have their weekly session on a Wednesday morning.
 

Phonics Screening Check

The Phonics Screening Check takes place at the end of the year (usually in June). This is a short assessment to check how well the children are able to read words using their phonic knowledge. This involves children coming out with their teacher to read 20 real words and 20 alien words which contain the Phase 3 and Phase 5 sounds that the children learn in school.
 

Reading

It is essential that you read with your child at home every day. This will help them to progress not only in their reading ability but in all areas of their learning. Your child will be given a levelled reading book by the teacher and a free choice book each week. We will check the children’s reading records every Friday but they should make sure that they bring their reading books and records to school every day. For an even wider variety of books to choose from, you could visit the fantastic new library in Penge!
 

Attendance

Good attendance and punctuality allow your child to fully access the curriculum and build on prior knowledge. Please ensure that your child arrives on time every day.

 

Topics we cover in Year 1 are below.
