Hello and welcome to Year 1
We are a happy and friendly class who love to learn.
Our Teachers are Miss Riding and Miss Suthers and we are supported by a collection of helpful Teaching Assistants.
Reading books go home every day and are expected to be brought back into school every day.
We encourage all children to read regularly at home with a grownup and sign the home reading record.
Book bags will be checked and changed weekly. Children will bring home a phonetically decodable reading book, which they should be able to read with some independence alongside a free choice book to enjoy with family. It is very important that the children re-read the same book regularly, as they need to see sounds and words again and again to transfer into their long-term memory.
Children will also bring home homework on a Friday to be returned to school by the following Tuesday. Homework will vary but will always be something that they have practised in the classroom.
PE is currently on a Monday and Thursday and it is expected that a full PE kit is in school.
