Miss Andrews, Mrs Holderness and Mrs Polli welcome you all to Year 1.
We warmly welcome you all to our class page and hope you will find everything you need on this page by following the links below. These pages will be updated regularly with information, photographs and descriptions of the wonderful work the children are doing in our Year 1 classroom. You will also find links to useful web-pages which include educational information and games.
English, Maths, Handwriting, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar are taught on a daily basis. Our class themes will be changed half termly and Science, Art, DT, History, Geography and Computing will be taught through cross-curricular themes including themed days and weeks.
Reading books will be changed and sent home. These will be suitable for the level at which your child is reading. Please continue to read daily, spending time to talk about each story. We want your child to develop a love for reading and we work hard in partnership with yourselves to develop pupils confidence and enjoyment of reading. Please encourage your child to sound out each unfamiliar word if it is phonically decodeable. Children should be encouraged to recognise tricky words and high frequency words on sight.
Mathematics is taught in a variety of ways, encouraging children to develop strategies to work mentally and solve problems.
P.E. sessions will take place on Thursdays. Yoga sessions will be held on Tuesdays and the correct kit should be brought into and kept in school.
If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.
