Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


We are really enjoying our reading in Year 1 and we always look forward to our daily story time. The children are now able to join in with reading more as their own reading develops! This term we are reading another set of exciting and engaging stories as well as non-fiction books where we will learn lots of information about materials and Brazil. We will also be looking at and reciting some poems where at the end of term, we get to perform them to the rest of the school.


Our traditional tale this term is 'Little Red Riding Hood' which is one of Miss Smith's favourite traditional tales because there are a variety of endings to the story. 

Please continue to read with your child 5 times a week and remember to sign their reading diary each day.  When reading together encourage your child to use their sounds to read the words. All books are changed on FRIDAYS and your child will bring home 3 new books each week. Research shows that reading improves when children re-read the same book so please revisit the stories so that by the end of each week your child is confidently reading the book.
