Weekly Class News:


Thursday 22nd October 2020 


Hi all,


We have made it to half term! I can only describe this half term as crazy. The children have adapted to the challenges and changes amazingly and I am so proud of them all. They seem to have come back after the summer holidays eager to learn. 


Year 1 parents:

Over half term please keep up with reading daily. I will also send home on Friday high frequency words that the children need to be able to read and write confidently. I will also send the phonics sounds from phase 2 and 3 that the children are still not confident with, if you can practise these it would ensure every child is ready for phase 5 when we return. I have added these sound individually on to Google classroom too.

Finally, I will be uploading on to Google Classroom and sending home some Maths work as well as any numbers that your child is forming incorrectly in order for them to practise. 


Any queries I am available on the Lilac email;

Have a great week!
Miss Gaff 😊



Class information:


P.E: This will be on a Thursday and a Friday. Please ensure long hair is tied back and the children have their PE kits in school. We will send home PE kits at half term to be washed. 


Spellings: Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for the children to practice. The children will be tested on these the following Wednesday. Please ensure their purple spelling folder is returned every Wednesday ready for the new spellings for the week. The children will have 10 words in total. 5 words will be from the words in the term section below and 5 words will be high frequency words for Year 1. 


Homework: The children will have a black homework folder that will be sent home with work inside to complete. This will be sent home on Fridays and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to ensure this is completed. 


Reading: Please support your child and ensure they read at home every night (even just for 15 minutes) as this will support them greatly. The children will be reading every other day in school and have their books changed twice a week. The books will only be changed if they have read them at home so ensure you have signed their reading books.  

Class Curriculum:


Here you will find the curriculum for Lilac Class for Year 1. Please see Willows class page for Reception. 

Under each term you will find the curriculum overview and the spellings for that term.
