1T Miss Duffy

Teachers: 1M – Mrs Rothwell 1L – Miss McCreavy  1T – Miss Duffy Support staff –  Mrs Healey, Mrs Howorth, Miss McDermott, Mrs Rosinska, Miss Whittaker

 

The children have made a wonderful start to the Autumn term and we appreciate your support with uniform, attendance and punctuality as we begin this exciting year of learning.

Year 1 children enter through the main Key Stage 1 doors. We ask that they do this independently as this supports their transition from foundation stage.  If you would like to speak to a teacher, please pass a message onto the member of staff at the door who will be happy to pass the message on, or ask the teacher to contact you.

PE

Each day we complete a ‘five a day’ work out which engages our minds and prepares us for learning. Children will also take part in a  weekly PE lesson with our PE instructor, Miss Duffy.  The children should have a PE kit in school in order to be fully prepared for the lesson.  Please bring a fully labelled (including pumps) PE kit into school and leave it in class until half term when we will send it home. We ask that you remove earrings on this day to ensure that no accidents can happen.

Unit 1 Reading Stars…

There is an expectation that all pupils in KS1 read, or are read to at least 5 times per week at home for approximately 10 minutes per session. This really makes a huge difference to your child’s progress in reading.

Please sign your child’s reading record book every time you read with them (you may also wish to write a short comment) and return their book to school every day.

English and Maths

Children will be taught reading and spelling using the ‘Bug Club’ phonics programme, and handwriting using the Penpals handwriting scheme.

Please see the letter and number formation sheets that the children use daily in

Learning Log Homework

Your child’s learning log is a book for your child to record their home learning in. They can draw, write or stick in this book or make something. Each half term there will be a task sheet with a range of activities to complete. Each task will be awarded points which will be collated at the end of term. Your child will be presented with a certificate dependent on the number of points awarded. Books will be given out each Friday and work collected on Wednesday
