Welcome to the Year One page of our website.
The Year One team consists of Miss Brien, Mrs Harrison, Miss Waldron and Mrs Maskew (and the children of course!).
On a typical day, we start with guided reading. While one group reads with Miss Brien, the rest of the class work independently on a range of phonics, handwriting or reading activities. After that, we take an English lesson, where we explore different stories, texts and poetry and try our own hand at writing. It can be a lot of fun!
During break time, we have a good chance to run around, play with our friends and have a drink and a snack - very important if we want to concentrate during lesson time.
After break, we focus on our mathematics skills, such as counting and recognising number facts. Then, before lunch, we have our Letters and Sounds session where we use our phonics skills. It's very important to know the building blocks of English if we are going to become excellent readers and writers!
For lunch, we sit with our friends and either enjoy the food prepared by the lunchtime staff or our own packed lunch. We also play out and make use of the school equipment.
After lunch, every day takes a different path, learning about Jesus through RE, art, history, science, PE and many other wonderful things.
At the end of the day, if there is time, we will do Show and Tell or listen to a story. We're pretty tired by then, so it's nice to see mums or dads and go home for our dinner.
Thank you to all the parents who attended the welcome meeting. It was lovely to meet so many of you. If you were unable to attend, please ask a member of the Year 1 staff if you would like to arrange a time to come in and discuss the information shared during the meeting.
Here is the powerpoint presentation used to share some information about Year 1.
Here are the sound mats which are used by the children to support them with their spelling in class.
