Solent Infant School
Welcome to Year 1
Spring News from Year 1

Welcome back!

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year.

We have already settled quickly back into our routines and are really enjoying our new themes of ‘The Lion Inside’ and Florence Nightingale. Please look on the school website, on the Year 1 page, for the half term curriculum overview.

We would like to thank you for all your support with your child’s learning at home last term as it makes a huge difference to your child’s confidence and progress. We look forward to working with you in the spring term.

During this term we will continue to send home spellings for the children to learn as well as the real and nonsense words for you to read together, ready for the National Phonics Test in June. We will be looking to see how the children use correct spellings in their writing.
Your child will also continue to receive weekly homework linked to our theme, the mathematics we are learning and our literacy work. Your support with these tasks is invaluable and your comments in the home school book help to inform us of their progress at home and are very much appreciated. Thank you!

Year 1 P.E. days
Our PE days will continue to be on a Monday and Tuesday for all classes.

Please could we remind you to ensure that your child’s P.E. kit is named and in school at all times. Also please remember that, for health and safety reasons, hair should be tied back and earrings are removed or taped over on those days.

Year 1 Library day is Thursday for all three classes

Just to let you know…
In the second half of term, we look forward to inviting you to watch your child and their class perform a ‘mini’ show to you. The performance date will be in the last week of term during an afternoon, and performance date and times will be announced later in the term.


Thank you for your continued support and help,

Mrs Summers, Mr Mason and Mrs Ray
Mrs Grinsell, Mrs Butcher, Mrs Turner, Mrs Churchill, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Paton
