Class Teacher - Mrs King and Mr Price

Learning Assistants - Mrs McGuinness and Mrs Kenyon

In Year 1 we believe that children learn best when they are having lots of fun! All of the lessons are interactive, exciting and engaging and involve the children in as many ways as possible. The children also still have plenty of opportunities to learn through play while accessing our wonderful areas of continuous provision. We have areas such as a reading corner, water, numeracy, writing and role play. We believe that a great resource can be each other so discussions and questioning are encouraged in all aspects to allow the children to learn from others to build up their own understanding.

All individuals

Each child enters Year 1 at a different stage; some are ready for the National Curriculum, whereas others will require a little support to achieve the Foundation Stage Profile objectives Reception. To continue the learning journey we take assessments made in Reception and identify the next steps for each child. We see every child as an individual, not just a year group. We understand that every child learns in a different way and has different interests and it is our aim to adapt our teaching to suit the children. We encourage their independence throughout, allowing them to take ownership of their learning and achievements and to understand how to solve problems on their own.

What do we learn?

We have daily Read Write Inc, Numeracy and challenge curriciulum sessions where we can work on our core skills. Our writing is focused around a book that we are reading and we produce some fantastic writing of our own linked to this work.  We teach most areas of the curriculum through the challenge curriculum where the different areas of the curriculum are linked through a common theme for example "How are humans different from tigers?" in science.

Some important things to remember:

PE- Monday afternoon and on Wednesday morning.

Homework is set on a Friday and should be handed in by the following Tuesday.

Spelling Test - homework will include spellings for a test on the following Friday.

Reading - we expect the children to read at least three times each week and expect to see comments in reading records from home.  We love to hear about the books you are sharing at home.
