Hello and welcome to the Year 1 Badgers class page! 

We update our website regularly to keep you updated on all the exciting things we are doing, please use the buttons below to access each term's page. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask- I am always happy to arrange to meet at the end of the school day or at a time convenient to you. 

Miss Ellis


Spring 2 - This half term we are carrying out phonics homework, which will be given out on a Friday and will be due back on Wednesday. They will still be given Read Write Inc work by their RWI teacher - this is often reading their book at home. If you would like to do even more to support your child at home please speak to me and I can provide ideas and/or resources to help you!


PE will be with Mr Strachan on a Tuesday so please make sure PE kits are in school each week!


Learning Challenge questions:

Autumn 1: Who am I? (all about ourselves)

Autumn 2: Would Robin Hood have seen sunflowers? (plants)

Spring 1: Does it rain everywhere? (Seasonal changes)

Spring 2: Are all animals the same? (animals)

Summer 1: Can you make a car out of wool? (materials)

Summer 2: Will you find your way in the dark? (light and shadows)

At Westglade we like to tie as much of our learning as possible (particular in History, Geography, Computing, DT, ART) to our Learning Challenge questions. Every half term we will also have a key Science focus that fits - you can see this in brackets next to the above questions. We aim to link our Literacy and Numeracy lessons to the underlying theme, too. For a more detailed overview see the attached PDF. As always this is subject to change but will give your a flavour of what's to come.
