Welcome to Rabbits

Welcome to the Rabbits page!


We are Year 1 and we share our class with Miss Savin and Mrs Totczyk.



What our days are like!

8:40 – 9:00: We start our day with our morning job, the children will come in, and on the board will be an activity for them to complete independently. During this time, we will also read with the children which could be their library book or phonics book.

9:00 – 9:30: In reading, the children have different activities each day relating to reading and develop their language. Each group will read three times a week linking to different objectives from the national curriculum. This build their fluency, expression when reading and comprehension skills.

9:30 – 10:30: The Rabbits class will then move onto their writing sessions. This is always context to a high quality, rich text. Within these lessons, the children learn skills based around writing letters, diary entries, stories,  posters, poems and much more with a balance between fiction and non-fiction. This session allows the children to be creative with different types of writing using different genres of books.

10:45 – 11: 35 After break and snack, it's maths. The children first start with their Rekenrek to support with number fluency in the form of counting and subitising. Once the children have completed this, we move onto our maths units.  The children love using concrete objects to help their learning, understanding and to be able to solve different math problems independently and as part of a team.




11:35 – 12:00: Once maths is completed, the children will have their phonics sessions. The children will have flash cards of sounds, tricky words and different words to support their blending. This sessions allows children to build their confidence with word reading and understanding of new words and their meanings. Children will also have an opportunity to work independently to practise spelling different words with the themed sounds of the week.

12:00 – 1:00: The children will then get ready and enjoy their lunch together as a whole school.

1:00 – 2:40: In the afternoon, we start with some spellings, which links to our phonics lessons every day. Next, the afternoon is for the children’s wider curriculum lessons. This will consist of: History, Geography, Science, DT, RE, PSHE, Art, Music and Computing over the course of each week.


2:40 – 3:00: Rabbits will join the rest of the school in the hall for our daily collective reflection.


How to help at home:
Reading is very important – The children are matched to the correct phonics book which is right for them and a Library book that they chose.

We also use Google Classroom where you can access our topic books from home, home learning tasks and activities that children can do in their own time.
