Welcome to Y1 1718!
Our teacher is Miss Baldwin, supported by Mrs Kerr in a morning and Mrs Howes in the afternoon. We are also lucky to have Mrs Snowdon, who is a volunteer two days a week.
In order for Y1 to settle quickly into their new classroom we aim to provide a bridge between the style of learning, organisation and layout of EYFS classroom. Our children will feel secure and aware in their new classroom in order for their best learning to happen.
At the beginning of the school year the classroom layout will reflect the learning from EYFS with provision based learning inside and outside, with a gradual move throughout the year to more formal learning.
Each day we will have structured sessions to develop their skills following the National Curriculum. In Y1 we also work on encouraging our children to develop their independent skills.
Reading has an especially strong focus in Y1 and it is expected that children continue to practice their reading and listening skills at home. Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, for those children who have finished their reading books (this will need to be recorded by an adult in their learning journal). There is an opportunity for keen readers to take home two books. In June 2017 all Y1 Pupils will take part in National Phonics Screening.
Please ensure that a named water bottle is brought in daily and taken home daily and ensure that your child has a full labelled P.E. kit (both indoor and outdoor) in school at all times.
