Welcome to Year One!
We have 29 children in our class. Our class teacher is called Miss Smith and our teaching assistant is called Mrs Smith.
P.E takes place on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please make sure the P.E kits are in school and all earrings are taken out before school on P.E days.
Spellings will be given out every Monday, to be completed and tested on the following Monday. In the event of a Bank Holiday the spellings test will be on a Tuesday.
In Year One we encourage the children to be inspired by books and have a love of reading. Each child will have an assigned reading day (written in their reading records) and on that day their books will be changed and they will read one of their new books to an adult. In addition to this, Year One will have the opportunity to read to a Year Four 'Reading Buddy'. This takes place every Friday and the children will need their reading folders in school to participate. As the children become more confident reading 1:1 to an adult, we will alternate weekly between 1:1 reading and guided reading, where the children will read aloud in a small group. We also have ERIC (everybody reads in class) where children are encouraged to read and discuss books they like.
Throughout the year, we learn through a topic-based curriculum. Topic webs are available on the class page and will be sent out as a letter at the beginning of each new term.
Feel free to call in to see us if you have anything you would like to discuss.
Miss Smith and Mrs Smith
