Welcome to Pear Tree Class!


Year 1 Pear is taught by Miss Schofield with support from Miss Peacock and Miss Sanderson.

Due to crowding concerns, we ask all Year 1 parents to say goodbye to their child at the door of the cloakroom. Any urgent messages that need to be given on a morning, please speak to the teaching assistant in the cloakroom.

Feel free to come and talk to us after school any day!

PE: PE lessons will be Thursday and Friday each week, but please ensure your child has their PE kit every day. If your child has earrings please remember to tape over the earrings or remove the earrings on PE days. Long hair will need to be tied back for all PE lessons.

Reading books: These will be changed every Tuesday and Friday. Please try to read with your child on a morning or weekend (when they are alert) as much as possible and ensure you make a note in their reading record to say they have read.
Homework:  Homework will go home every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday.
Spellings: After the October half term holidays, spellings will be sent home every Friday and are tested the following Thursday afternoon.
Top games to do at home to help your child:
Daily counting forwards and backwards from and to 100.
One more/One less than any given number.
Guess my shape/number (give lots of verbal clues).
Counting things in 2s, 5s or 10s.
Writing simple sentences about anything they have done or are interested in. Encourage children to use phonics and tricky words.
Remember finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.
Singing the alphabet/which letter is missing (encourage children to use the letter names).







There are lots of interactive games that you can use for your computers or tablets. Here are a few good websites to help your child's education.


Autumn Highlights


This half term we have been settling in to Year 1. We have been really fantastic at getting used to sitting at our tables and working neatly in our books. We have talked about what qualities a Pear Tree member should have and how we would like to act in our class.


In English this half term we have been looking at the stories:

The Owl Babies

What the Ladybird Heard

We have been thinking about the character's thoughts and feelings; re-telling the stories; changing some of the characters; making up our own versions and describing some of the characters.


In Maths we have been learning about place value. We have been learning about tens and ones; greater than, equal to and less than; one more and one less, and which numbers are odd and even.
