Pear Tree Class - Year 1


Welcome to our class page!

Year 1 Pear is taught by Miss Atkinson with support from Miss Peacock and Miss Bird. 

As we are sure you can appreciate, the mornings are a very busy time and our main concern is to get the children into school safely and ready to start the day.  If a message needs to be passed on to do with home-time arrangements or something that we need to know about for that day then please feel free to speak to the teacher at the door.  If a longer or more confidential conversation is needed please use the class email or call the school office to arrange a phone call.

Our class email is  

PE: PE lessons will be Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning each week and children will need to wear PE kit to school on these days. Earrings should not be worn on these days and long hair also needs to be tied up. If for any reason earrings can not be taken out then they should be covered with tape (this needs to be brought to school or put on in the morning at home). 

Reading books: Reading books need to be brought to school each day in book bags. They will be changed on a Tuesday. Children should, ideally, be reading at home to an adult daily. The minimum expectation is that children will read 3 times each week. Please remember to sign your child's reading record book so that we know they have read at home. On Fridays, the children can choose a book from our school library to take home for the week. These must be brought back to school on the following Friday. 
Water bottles: Children need to bring a named and filled water bottle to school each day.  This should only contain water.
Homework: Every Friday, spellings will be sent home with your child. These will reflect the phonics sounds that have been taught that week in school. We do not expect the spellings to be returned to school, but please make sure you help your child to practise them at home. Maths or English homework is given out every Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday. 

Coats: Children must have a coat in school each day.  This should be waterproof!

Summer Term 2022

For the first few weeks of Summer 1 we will be finishing off our topic of 'Yeadon Explorers'. From the week beginning Monday 2nd May we will be starting our new topic of 'African Adventure'.  We will be comparing life in Yeadon to life in different parts of Africa, learning how to find Africa on a map and recapping the names of the different continents and oceans.
