Welcome to Year 1! We are very excited to welcome you to our class page! Here you will find important information about our wonderful learning and important information about reading books and P.E. The Year 1 class teacher is Miss C Connolly and the Year 1 Teaching Assistants are Mrs Kenny (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) and Mrs Dawes (Thursday, Friday). If you require any further information not detailed on this page, please do not hesitate to contatct us.
Our P.E Lesson takes place every Thursday at 1:15. Children can leave their P.E kit in school and it can be taken home at the end of each half-term to be cleaned. Please ensure all P.E kit is labelled clearly with your child's name. P.E kit consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps/trainers.
Maths and English Home Learning will be sent home every Friday, alongside spellings. The home learning will extend and consolidate the learning that the children have completed in class during the week. At this young age, parents may find it beneficial to support the children during the activities. Home learning should be returned to school the following Tuesday to be marked. Please speak to the class teacher if you have any concerns or questions regarding home learning.
Children will bring home a new reading book every week. The reading book correlates with the learning taking place in school. Educational research reccomends that children should read at home at least three times per week in order to develop a higher level of fluency, comprehension and passion for books. Commenting in the yellow reading diary is a fantastic way of communicating your child's progress with the class teacher.
