Welcome to Mrs Railton’s Reception/Y1 page
We are a class that learns hard but in a fun and enjoyable way! Our class aims to achieve the school motto: “May Christ Be Seen In Us” by being good friends, following rules and doing the best we can every day.
What are we learning about?
Maths: Our focus is on number and being able to count on and back from any given number. We are perfecting our addition and subtraction skills – we will add and subtract one digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero, as well as represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20. We will be learning about fact families. We will try to solve missing number problems. This term Year 1 will also be looking at halving and doubling as well as looking at how we can split numbers into tens and units.
Literacy: We will be focusing on adjectives and creative writing. We will remember to write in sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will try to remember to use our spelling rules and spelling words when writing. This half term we will also look at changing words using suffixes (-ing, -ed, -er, -est) and making our sentences more interesting by using adjectives, connectives and similes.
R.E.: We will recognise some religious signs and symbols and use some religious words and phrases in our work. We will begin to say what we wonder about. This half term we are looking at special people within our church community. We hope to have the Deacon come and cisit our class and answer any questions we may have about and who helps at church.

How can I help my child?
Reading at home – make reading fun and easy – something you both look forward to!
Writing at home – make writing fun
Don’t worry if your child’s letters or words are sometimes backwards or misspelt at this age. The important thing is that they have fun writing at home and are making an effort.
Maths at home:
Here’s a tip – use lots of mathematics words as your child is playing to develop their understanding of early mathematics (eg “over”, “under”, “first, second, third”, “round”, “through”, “before”, “after”). Use the language that works best for you and your child.
If you have any questions or you would like to discuss something with us, please come and see us in the morning or afternoon when picking up your child.
Thank you for your continued support!
