Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 1 – Palm & Chestnut

Welcome to Year 1 - Palm and Chestnut !HELLO everyone we hope you feel ready for the new term after the holidays! 
Mrs C Mason, Mrs Rolling, Miss Stafford, Mrs Hutchins and Mrs R Mason
are looking forward to hearing all your exciting news.
We hope you will enjoy our new topic which is called 'Where We Live'

Ask your parents what type of house (i.e. apartment, bungalow, flat, terraced, semi-detached, detached, etc) 
you live in and see if you can learn your address too!


 Remember it is important to read regularly and practise your phoneme recognition. Be like a detective and try to spot them in your reading books! Also practise your spelling word lists as well as counting in ones -  both forward and backwards!

Don't forget to choose three things that you are going to attempt for this half term
 from our homework menu  - which you can find below. We love seeing and sharing all the creative ways you interpret the homework tasks. Let's hope we get lots of fab things, again, to look at! 

Finally don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the links to safe internet searching, maths, literacy and other sites that we use in class as well as the links to Phonics Bug and Oxford Owl where you can do lots of eReading.
Do you have any ideas, needs or wants for this page? Why not let us know!
Take a look at the
Children's Zone where you can play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourite

This should be taken home, washed and refilled daily. Thank you.
