Maths Calculation Help
Below you will find 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.
Phonics and Spellings
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). To help your child with this, please try to practice phonics skills with them daily. You will find resources to help with this on the links below. You can also have a go at some of the games on https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5.
Please click this link for some further parent information.
During Phonics and English, we also work on helping the children to spell words from their Year group's spelling list. Please find the list here and help your child to learn these words whenever you get chance.

We love reading in Year 1 and the children love to share stories at home as well as in school. If you want some ideas of questions to ask your child as they read, please have a look at the question booklet below for lots of examples.
The adults in our class always try to keep us safe and happy.
They encourage us to be good witnesses, make good choices and try to be like our wonderful role model, Jesus Christ.
We think about the question, "What would Jesus do?" to help us with this!
In our class we follow the 5 W's and make sure that everyone feels welcome.
We share the word of God in what we do and what we say.
We protect the welfare of our class mates by thinking 'what would Jesus do' so that we are all happy at school.
Every day we worship together in class and in assemblies, sharing our prayers and thoughts with God.
By doing these things we witness the work and life of Jesus in our school every day.
