Respect - Collaborate - Grow
Welcome to Year 1!
In Year 1, Mrs Robson is the main class teacher, teaching four days a week to ensure continuity across English and Maths learning. Other lessons are taught by Mrs Hughes, Mrs Disney and Miss Chana. We are very lucky to have support all week by Mrs Austin too.
PE is taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays but this sometimes changes, so it is best to leave PE kits in school all term; we will send them home for a wash during holidays. Please ensure that all school and PE uniform are clearly named. Earrings must be removed or covered with micro-pore tape (tape to be provided by home) for PE.
Children make best progress when they are supported in their learning at home. Reading books will come home every day and we encourage the children to read at least 4 times a week at home. Please write a comment in the reading records and ensure that these records are in school every day. At the back of these record books you will find the sight words your child is working on learning; please practise these at home to help to improve reading fluency.
Home learning and spellings are sent home on Fridays and are due into school by the following Wednesday. Spellings are checked in school on Wednesdays.
The children get very excited about improving their maths skills through Numbots, which can be accessed online at home using the login details in the front of the reading record.
Please also ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school and that it only contains water. They will also need a lunchtime drink; this could be water, squash or juice (no fizzy drinks please). They can also bring in a fruit or vegetable snack for morning playtime.
We look forward to our exciting learning journey together in Year 1.
Mrs Robson and Mrs Austin
