Maths Calculation Help
Click below to download our calculation booklets for Y1 to help you understand how your child learns to calculate at St Bernadette's.
Additionally, you can access copies of our calculation evening presentation from last year.
All children are taking part in daily phonics sessions to learn the sounds they will need to know to help them with their reading and writing (and help them prepare for the Phonics screening).
We follow the Supersonic Phonic Friends scheme.

Phonics Screening Check
The Year 1 phonics screening check is a way for teachers to ensure that children are making sufficient progress with their phonics skills to read words and that they are on track to become fluent readers who can enjoy reading for pleasure and for learning.
The screening check usually takes place late in the Spring term (April/May) and we will invite parents in to school to explain the process.

During Phonics and English lessons, we work on helping the children to spell words from their Year group's spelling list.
Please read with your child for 15 minutes each day and initial their journal to let us know when you have read. Please also leave a message if your child is reading additional books, we love to hear about the texts children are enjoying at home!
In Year 1, your child is still developing their independence and confidence; reading is one of the most valuable ways to do this. Your child's ability to read will help them access and develop a vast range of skills.
Year 1 books are allocated on Friday and should be returned every Friday so they can be changed. Your child will be allocated two paper books each week.
We love reading in Year 1 and the children love to share stories at home as well as in school.
Please have a look at the question booklet below for lots of examples of questions to ask your child as they read.
We hope you all had a relaxing and fun filled summer! We are looking forward to watching you grow and have lots of exciting things planned for our first term in Year 1!

In our class we are all welcome in God's name as God's children.
We share the word of God in what we do and what we say.
We protect the welfare of our frby thinking 'what would Jesus do' so that we are all happy at school.
Every day we worship together, sharing our prayers and thoughts with God.
By doing these things we witness the work and life of Jesus in our school every day.
In Year 1 we set weekly maths homework each Friday, so that your child can practise their number and calculation skills. Maths tasks will be available online via MyMaths using the login found at the front of your child's journal.
Please sit with your child and support them with their homework.
