Welcome to Year 1's class page
Mrs Goodwin is our class teacher but while she is on maternity leave, Miss Emmens is teaching us. Mrs Knowles, Mrs Tagari and Mrs Broan also help us with our learning.
The doors open at 8.50am and the school day starts at 9.00am. At the end of the day at 3.15pm, the children are brought to the ramp to be collected by their parents.
Children are asked to wear white t-shirt and black shorts for indoor PE and a plain tracksuit for outdoor PE with sensible shoes, all kit is to be clearly named.
Homework will be sent out on Thursday and due back on Tuesday.
We change our books every Monday and Thursday. Please read with your child every evening and sign the Reading Diary. In the diary you will find questions to help you read with your child. The children need to be able to decode the words and also need to learn how to 'read for meaning'. The children should be able to read the book that they have chosen and answers questions about the book. They will have a task to complete once a week using their reading book to help them. Once the sheet is completed they will receive a certificate to celebrate this.
Later on in the school year, the children in Year 1 will be completing the phonics screening check. In preparation for this, the children can to play some games which use real and alien words.
