Key Stage 1 - Grasshoppers (Year 1) 2020 - 2021

Miss Edge

Mrs Sumner

Welcome to Grasshoppers 

Welcome to Grasshoppers class page. This Year Miss Edge is your class teacher in Year One. The wonderful Mrs Sumner is the teaching assistant.

I hope you have all had a lovely summer and are ready to come back to school. I am looking forward to meeting you all, and to the year ahead.


Things have been very different for us all, school is a little different and might not look like it usually does but we are still going to have so much fun. This term, I have lots of exciting things planned and I can't wait to get started with all our learning! Spelling will be given out every Monday via the Class Dojo page. Please practice these at home as children will be tested on these on a Friday.  Homework will go out on a Thursday via Class Dojo and this should be completed and submitted through the Class Dojo page. If your child completes the homework, they will recieve a Dojo! 


Please send reading books in everyday as we will be hearing your child read throughout the week. Reading at home should take place at least 3 times a week and books will be changed in school on a Monday and Wednesday. If your child reads 3 times during 1 week, they will recieve a stamp on their Frequent Reader Worm! 


Please provide a water bottle for your child to keep them hydrated throughout the day. We kindly ask that you label the bottle clearly with their name to ensure bottles do not get lost or mixed up with another child. Water bottles are welcome to stay in school throughout the week, however they must go home on a Friday to be washed.


If you ever have any questions, worries or frustrations, please do not hesitate to discuss them with us. Our door is always open, and you are welcome to book an appointment to discuss things further.

Phonics And Reading Support

Please encourage your child to read at home every day. This may be their school reading book, or a book they have chosen. We would love you to encourage your child to play phonics games at home. These games will consolidate their learning within school, in a fun and practical way. You can find many games on Phonics Play and Topmarks, please click on the links below.

Here are a selection of recommended reads for Year 1 children. Please encourage your child to engage in reading exciting, age appropriate books.
