Hello and welcome to Year 1. The team this year are Miss Barcellona in Rose Class and Miss Sarwar in Violet Class. Both Classes have support from Mrs Fuller, Miss Wood and Mrs Pain. The children are becoming more independent this year. They will have fun and work hard in all their learning.
We use the systematic teaching of phonics to help the children with reading & writing. Also, we keep our maths practical which helps to scaffold the children’s learning. We will have a topic each half-term where the children have the opportunity for cross-curricular writing.
Please encourage your children to read every night, learn their spellings for a test every Thursday and make sure to visit Mathletics at least once a week. Homework that is set on a Friday needs to be returned by the following Thursday.
Please take a look at our medium term plan to find out what we are learning this half term.
