How does your child learn mathematics in Year 1?
What things can you do at home to help them with their learning?
What concepts will they cover this year?
What strategies should you encourage your child to use?
What is that diagram!?
All of these questions (and more!) will be covered in our upcoming information session.
Please come along and speak with your child's year 1 teacher and collect free resources.

Each week at our Stand Up A Good One assembly, our teachers recognise our efforts. Congratulations to our Nightingale SAUGO Award recipients for Autumn 1:
Week 1: Harry for making good choices and being a good friend!
Week 2 Danny for making sensible learning choices and helping his learning partner.
MATH CHAMPION - Kevin completed his first number bond challenge in 55 seconds!
Your child will continue to take part in daily Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics sessions this year. This year, your child will learn the vowel sounds and the many alternative spellings. As your child learns a new sound, they will practice reading and writing it at school and at home as part of their weekly homework.
We encourage you to help your child learn their spelling words by adopting the Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check approach.
To date, your child will have learned their SET 1 and SET 2 sounds and will begin learning their SET 3 sounds this term. They will discover that there are many different ways to make the same sound, e.g. ee as in tree and ea as in tea. In Year 1, your child will begin to create links between these sounds and spelling patterns, helping them to read and write with accuracy and fluency.
ea: cup of tea
oi: spoil the boy
a_e: make a cake

This year, your child will continue to learn math through play and will be encouraged to discover 'math' in their everyday environment. They will also follow the Math- No Problem! approach to learning mathematics which will allow your child to develop their mathematical fluency and mastery.
we want your child to generate many solutions
and communicate their findings confidently!
This term, your child will continue to build on their knowledge of number and place value with number 1-100. They will count forwards and backwards from any given number, read and write numbers as words as well as compare quantities. This term, your child will begin to develop their understanding of 'Number bonds' and will learn to add and subtract numbers using a variety of strategies. Your child will also look at shapes and patterns in their environment and explore the concepts of measurement via hands-on learning opportunities.
We encourage you to access the RMEasimath website where your child will consolidate their understandings and work at a pace that challenges them. Your child can access RMEasimath by clicking the picture below:
