Please make sure that your child’s name is written inside all school clothes (cardigans, jumpers, trousers, t shirts and coats). This makes it easier to give out misplaced clothes back to their rightful owners. Remember if you take your jumper off in class, place it in the take home box to keep it safe!
The class PE day's are on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that appropriate footwear is worn and PE clothing is appropriate for the weather as our lessons will be indoors and outdoors on the playground.
Children will be given 2 pieces of homework every week, along with spellings to learn. Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday, so we can monitor your child's learning. If you need any help completing your child's homework then there is a homework club you can attend on a Monday after school with Mrs Whitehurst.
Reading books are changed weekly, but this is not on a set day so it is very important that your child brings their book bag to school every day. Please write a comment in your child’s reading diary when you hear them read.
Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child. We are holding a reading challenge this year! Every time you read, write it in your reading record. For every comment, you will earn a point. When you reach 45points, you will be awarded the Bronze Level; when you reach 90points, you will be awarded Silver Level and for 135 for you be awarded Gold Level!
Reddal Hill follow 'Kinetic Letters' handwriting scheme. Your child will have daily handwriting lessons. If you need any support with this, please speak to Mrs Fazey.
All children in Year 1 have usernames and passwords for Mathletics, TimesTable Rockstars, Purple Mash, Bug Club and TootToot. These can be found in their reading records.
Please encourage your child to use Mathletics in order to enhance their Mathematical progress. Purple Mash is a fantastic resource as it covers all areas taught across the curriculum and helps children consolidate their learning. By the end of Year 1 children should be confident at reciting their number bonds to 20 and their 2 and 10 times tables, hit the button is a fantastic resource that allows children to consolidate their times tables knowledge in a fun way!

Every class in the school looked at the book 'Mirror' by Jeannie Baker which is a two in one picture book showing a parallel day in the life of two families: one in a Western city of Sydney, Australia and one in a North African village.

Our topic for this Autumn is 'What's it made from?'. We have had lots of fun learning all about different materials and their properties. We completed a science investigation to find out what would be the best material to keep our worry monster dry if it started to rain. We made some predictions about which materials we thought would be the most waterproof and then we came to the conclusion, out of all the materials that we tested, that plastic was the most waterproof and therefore would be the best material to use for an umbrella. Well done Lilies Class. Great investigating skills!

Good afternoon Lilies
Mrs Buthelezi, Mrs Begum and I are all missing you so much!
Some of our class have been back to school last week and it was brilliant to see the children that have been in, especially their smiley faces
There is a home-learning section on the website under the 'Parents' section. There you will find activities split into four days for you to work on whilst you are at home.
Myself and Miss Eades hope you enjoy completing the activities!
Don't forget to email with the work that you have done so I can choose the weekly VIP!
I can't wait to see you all again soon!
Hi Lilies, it's Miss Slater I hope you are all keeping safe and behaving.
It was so nice to speak to many of you this week, hearing your voices really made me smile! It was also lovely to hear what you had been up to, many of you can now ride your bikes (I am very proud of you!!) and have been baking (something that Miss Eades is very good at )
Over the past week I have been planning some exciting lessons for you, spending time in my garden in the sunshine and planting some plants - can you remember what plants need to grow?
I also watched the Little Mermaid at the weekend, Miss Eades even watched it too!
Earlier in the week, it was Florence Nightingales birthday, she was born 200 years ago! Do you remember learning about Florence Nightingale in our History lessons? Florence Nightingale had a little message for you all to celebrate such a fantastic occasion, click on the link below:

Hi Lilies, it's Miss Slater
I hope you are all ok and keeping safe
What have you been doing to keep yourselves busy? I have been going for a walk everyday as part of my hour outside, it is so nice to hear the birds sing. I have also been keeping busy in my garden and cleaning my house.
If you have already finished your home learning pack that was sent home, then there is another pack at school that you could ask your grown up to collect for you
During the next 3 weeks in our English lessons we were going to be writing an adventure story! If you want to have a go at writing your own adventure story with lots of pictures that would be fantastic, let your imagination run wild! I am looking forward to reading it when we are back at school
Why not go on a shape hunt around your house? How many different 3D shapes can you find? Were there any 3D shapes that you couldn't find? Maybe you could have a go at writing down the names of the 3D shapes you found, how many faces, edges and vertices do they have?
You could also play shops with your grown up when it comes to lunch time and work out if you have enough money to buy your lunch or any snacks!
Can you have a go at counting how many pairs of socks you have using your 2 times tables? Is there anything that you could use to practise counting in your 5 times tables or even your 10 times tables?
Our new is Animals. Why not go out in your garden or look out your window and write down all the different animals you see throughout the day? You could also draw all the different animals that you can think of, could you have a go at grouping the animals together? What animals live in the jungle, sea or on land?
The place an animal lives is called its habitat. Can some animals live in more than one habitat?
To re-cap some of your previous knowledge on plants, why not have a go at drawing all the different plants/trees you may see when you go out on your daily walk or in your garden?
If you fancy a challenge, try to label the plant or tree!
If you are feeling creative, why not re-use any old cardboard boxes and make some masks!
You could also use some coloured or plain paper and make some origami. When I was in school with some of the children, we had a go at making a crab and a shark, it is a bit tricky but with help from a grown-up I am sure you can achieve it! Maybe you could make a range of different animals. I can't wait to see them!
Hi Lilies! It's Miss Slater
I really hope you are keeping safe at home and enjoying spending some time with your families.
I thought I would add some more activities for you to have a go at each week. There are also some websites to have a look at as well.
Mrs Buthelezi, Mrs Begum and I miss you lots and we really hope you are keeping safe
This week in English, we were going to be writing an information text all about an animal. If you fancy doing some research about an animal of your choice and creating your own information text then that would be amazing! I look forward to reading it when we're back at school!
In Maths this week, we were going to look at sequencing events, the days of the week and the months of the year. I thought that you could have a go at ordering the days of the week and months of the year at home, maybe you could write down special occasions that happen in some of the months (what month of the year is your birthday in?). To help you with sequencing events, maybe you could have a go at sequencing your new daily routine.
To re-cap some of your previous knowledge, I thought that you could have a go at a scavenger hunt around your house for objects made of different materials. We learnt about Materials back in the Autumn term, but I am sure that you will be able to remember a lot of different materials and have a go at finding them in your house (you could even try and make your own tick list as you find them!).
Have you put a rainbow up in your window yet? If no, then make one it'll make someone's day! If you have why not make a beautiful sun to brighten up your day!
We all know how much you love reading so don't forget to relax with a good book!
I also know how much you all enjoyed listening to me read the slightly annoying elephant by David Walliams, so if you want to listen to some more of his stories then visit worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses. Everyday David Walliams will read a different short story at 11:00am
I have found some scavenger hunts to keep you extra busy whilst you are at home!
When you have completed each one, make sure to tidy up and place everything back where it belongs.
We have sent lots of Maths work home with you in your packs but here are some websites you could use!

World Mental Health Day
For World Mental Health day we all wore green and paid a pound to support the amazing work of The Samaritans. We spent the day learning lots of different ways to look after our own minds and the minds of our friends! We learned how to be kind and considerate to other and how to understand our emotions. Every day in year 1, we use our 'feeling sticks' and put them in our 'feeling pots' and discuss our emotions. Miss Skidmore and Miss Foster help us to feel better if we say we are sad or angry and help us understand how to deal with these feelings!
All in all, Reddal Hill raised an amazing £314 for The Samaritans. This will really help keep the charity going and save many lives of people living with poor Mental Health.
Thank you very much for your generosity!
