Pear Tree Class - Year 1


Welcome to our class page!

Year 1 Pear is taught by Miss Atkinson with support from Miss Redmond, Miss Sands and Miss Mallison. 

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 Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday 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. 
Rucksacks: Rucksacks should not be brought into school. These bags take a lot of space in the classroom and make it harder for children to hang their coats up and access them independently. 
Water bottles: Children need to bring a named and filled water bottle to school each day.  This should only contain water.
Homework: Every Friday, phonics activities will be sent home with your child. These will reflect the  sounds that have been taught during the week in school. We do not expect the phonics sheets 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 as we play outside in all weather.  This should be waterproof!

Summer Term 2024

Our topic for this term is 'African Adventure'. To bring this topic to life we will be completing an African drumming workshop on Wednesday 24th April. Our core texts for Summer 1 are 'Handa's Surprise' and 'Lila and the Secret of Rain'. We will be focusing on geography over the term, rather than history, and the children will be learning the names of different countries in Africa and comparing life in different parts of Africa.
