Welcome to Year 1!
Class closure - a message from the Year 1 staff
We look forward to meeting up again very soon. Keep well, stay safe and look after each other. Please use Purple Mash to access blended/remote learning for the days we will be out of school.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to send a message to the class email account. Miss Andrews
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. These pages will be updated regularly with information, photographs and descriptions of the wonderful work the children are doing in our Year 1 classroom. Please follow the links below. You will also find links to useful websites which include educational information and games.
Many subjects, for example English, Maths and Phonics are taught daily. 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.
Individual reading books will be changed and sent home for you to share together. 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 both mentally and solve problems.
P.E. sessions take place twice a week. On Tuesday mornings we have Yoga led by Miss Danielle. On Thursday afternoons we have PE with our Sports Specialist, Mr Luke. PE kits should be brought into school and should remain in school.
Please ensure all items of school clothing are clearly marked with your child's name.
If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact me on our class email at EMYear1@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk
