Class 1D 2016 - 2017

Miss Davies

Welcome to Year 1!

Hello 😊 And welcome back to Leighton Academy. I am very excited to be continuing up to year 1 this year and I am looking forward to seeing everyone after the holidays. What an exciting year we have ahead in 1D!

A few things are a little different this year, so please note the following information.


Our homework policy has changed! Please find this updated policy in the 'Files to Download' section below.

Your child is expected to achieve a Mathletics certificate every week. Tasks and new learning will be updated by the class teacher. Mathletics certificates will be printed out before achievement assembly each week. 

May we ask that you continue to take time to read with your child each night. This may include your child reading their school book to you but it may also be you reading a book to your child, both of these experiences are equally as important. 'Book Talk' is really valuable at this point so encouraging your child to talk about what they have read or asking them questions about what they have read is really useful.


PE will take place on a Wednesday this half term so please ensure that your child brings their PE kit them at the beginning of each week. Again, please ensure that ALL kits are named as we may be another year older but we are still very good at losing things!!!

School uniform should also be appropriately named to ensure that any items that are misplaced can be returned.

As we are (hopefully) approaching warmer weather, it is important that your child has a water bottle which is to be filled with water. Children also have fountains available to refill their bottles throughout the day. 

What we are learning about:

This term we are going to be learning about Space. We will be focusing on the book 'Aliens Love Underpants' in Liteacy and also learning about space, space travel and also learning about Tim Peake and Neil Armstrong. In science we are going to be learning about plants. 



The drop in session for 1D is on a Thursday after school. However, should you have any questions or need to contact me outside of the school day, I am also available on my email.

Thank you once again for your continued support.

Miss Davies 😊
