Week beginning 13th September 2021

Dear Parents and Carers!

Welcome to Autumn Term l.  All the children are settling back into the school and class routine. Thank you very much for your support as we continuously endeavour to support your children with their learning as well as keep them safe.

From this week, school starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3:05pm.

If you have any relevant questions,  please contact us via the Year-Group-Email: year1@howard.croydon.sch.uk or the comment feature in Google Classroom. We will aim to respond as quickly as possible.

This term in our classes, we are continuing to learn with lots of free flow and choice activities indoors and out doors.


We will start sending reading books from Friday 17th September 2021. If you haven’t returned your child’s yellow reading record book, please do so this week.



In our phonic groups, we are revising all the sounds that we have learnt so far.


We will be counting forwards and backwards beyond 20+.


We have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please send your children with their PE kits to school on these days.

We use JIGSAW across our School to develop children’s skills, knowledge and understanding as well as emotional literacy.

We are going to introduce the ‘Jigsaw’ programme and our topic is ‘Being me in my world’.


This week, we are going to introduce and explore line and tone.

Have a good weekend and see you on Monday.

Kind regards

Year l Team.
