Year 1

Welcome to
Year 1
Our class teacher is Miss Boe (until Miss Simpson returns after her maternity leave)
I am so excited to teach you lots of new things and introduce you to the Year 1 curriculum.
In Year 1, we still have lots of lovely areas where we can continue our independent learning. We have a construction area, an art workshop, a role play area and a reading corner! We are very good at completing challenges so I am going to set you lots of new ones this year.
Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Gamsby
Mrs Gamsby loves Art and can not wait to help you to create some masterpieces!
Reading books will be sent out on a Monday with reading records and should be returned every Friday. Children will be given 1 or 2 per week. Please make sure you sign your child's reading record so that we know they have read their books at home. It is also useful if you write a comment about how they did and if they struggled with any parts of the book. This ensures we can check progress and support them in school.
The children will have spellings each week. These will go out in their home learning books each Monday and we will have a spelling test each Friday. 
Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school. It may be useful to pop some jogging bottoms in their PE kit and a jacket for when it starts to get cold as we will be doing PE outdoors.
