Welcome to the Wrens
Year 1 at Greenfield
Wrens are the year 1 class at Greenfield School. During year 1, we work hard to transition from the early year’s curriculum to more formal learning while developing routines to help us begin to establish our independence. Year 1 is a very exciting year as the Wrens experience many things for the first time, have ample opportunities to challenge themselves and start to discover their own skills and talents.
During year 1, we work hard to learn new skills with a particular focus on phonics, reading, writing and maths. The Wrens also enjoy the opportunity to focus on individual subjects such as history, geography and science for the first time as well as broadening their social skills in PSHCE. Wrens continue to reflect on the school values and how they can fully embrace them both at school and home.
Homework in Wrens is a weekly learning log which aims to inspire the children to embrace their creativity while either consolidating knowledge gained through the term or as a starting place for a new unit of work. We have spellings to learn each week which are generally based on the phonics we have been learning in class. Reading daily at home is recommended and is crucial for developing our fluency and comprehension skills.
Our PE lessons are led by Premier Sport on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that PE kits are in school each week, the children will wear them home on Wednesday afternoon and need to arrive at school wearing them on Thursday morning but they should remain at school the rest of the time.
If you have any queries, questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to phone or email the school office who will pass any messages on to me.
Many Thanks for your continuing support of your child and our school.

The Wrens have been learning about different types of poetry this term. We have enjoyed writing our own shape poems, and since then, we have been thinking carefully about rhyming words. We have listened to, and joined in with, several different poems and would like to share one of our favourites with you. We hope you enjoy our video as much as we enjoyed making it.
This term the Wrens have been learning to tell stories through music. They have been working very hard to learn this rap about the Three Little Pigs and were thrilled to have the opportunity to perform it to Mrs Drawbridge and some of their friends in Collective Worship today. Super work Wrens, we have some excellent budding musicians among us!
