Welcome to

Methley Primary School

Mrs Reynard and Mrs Falkingham welcome you to our Year One page.


Our Current Learning

Our new topic this term is WILD WILD WORLD.

Maths  - Week Beginning 3-6-19 - We will continue to work on fractions,  recognising, finding and naming a quarter as one of four equal parts of a shape, object or quantity.

Questions that will be asked include:- how many equal parts do we need to show a quarter? 

Stem sentences include:- a quarter of 8 is ----;  3 is one quarter of ---

Please continue to work on times tables for 2s, 5s and 10s and use the Times Tables Rockstars.

 English - Week Beginning 3-6-19 - In writing we will be creating our text map for our new text, 'The Tiger Who Came To Tea', learning about the features of the text. We will also be looking at the difference between 'there', 'their', 'they're (there are)' , as the children are always mixing these up.

In reading we will be working on retrieval and sequencing skills, using the above text.


   Topic (R.E) - Week Beginning 3-6-19 -  We will continue to look at bible stories and the messages that we can glean from them.

    Science - Week Beginning 3-6-19 -We will be focussing on plants, identifying and naming a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and        evergreen trees.

                                                                                   Please help by supporting your child in observing the range of plants in their environment.

Throughout all our learning children are challenged with different activities both with the teachers and working independently in provision. This allows children to work in areas they enjoy and display learning in different ways.

Phonics - Week Beginning 3-6-19  -  Some sound revision - 'split a-e', e. g, snake, escape; 'split e-e', e. g, these, complete; 'split i-e', e. g, shine, invite; 'split o-e', e.g, stone, envelope; 'split u-e', e. g, flute, cube


Important information

So many thanks for your support during another brilliant half term! This morning's music performance was just another example of what great progress the children have made.

*** It's great to see so many children engaging in the Times Tables Rockstars. Thank you for you support!

Please encourage your child to read as often as they can (little and often) and sign their reading record book. The reading ladder incentive starts afresh after each holiday. Ten reads =bronze certificate, another ten silver, and another ten gold (within each half term). Children are then entered into a prize winning raffle.

We try to ensure the children take their water bottles home at the end of each week to be thoroughly cleaned. Please ensure they bring them back on the Monday. Thank you

Books are changed on a Tuesday & Friday, if reading records have been signed by parent/carer. Don't forget to read at least 3 times for a ticket in our reading raffle. We are also promoting moving up the reading ladder - a step for each read with a certificate for achieving 10 reads.

PE kits to be brought on a Monday and taken home on a Friday.   Please ensure your child has indoor and outdoor kit.  

Indoor kit consists of navy/black shorts and a white t-shirt.  Outdoor kit consists of navy/black tracksuit, white t-shirt and trainers.

This half term Mrs Falkingham's class  and Mrs Reynard's will both do PE on Wednesday and Friday

Thank you
