Welcome to Year 1C!
IN Y1C we are lucky because we have lots of adults helping in our class. Miss Chiassaro and Miss Clifton help us every day, they are our learning support assistants. Ms Kee joins us in the morning for our reading sessions. We also have Specialist Teachers who come to our classroom once a week. Mr. Kearney teaches us Computing on Friday, Mr. Longstaff teaches us PE on Friday and Mr. Watson teaches us Music on Thursday.
We love our classroom. It is filled with lots of special displays and exciting areas like our ‘Super Writers Corner’, a role play area, sand and water areas, construction area, Maths working wall, a Creation Station and a super cosy reading jungle! These areas are familiar to us from Reception and support our learning and understanding of the world.
We have Topic day once a week; on Tuesdays! It is Miss Connolly’s favourite day of the week!
We have PE twice a week. It would be very helpful if you could label everything in the PE kits! That way if clothes or shoes get mixed up they can be easily returned to their rightful owner!
In Year 1 we have daily reading sessions, where your child will read 1:1 with an adult. It is very important that your child brings in their reading record every day, so that an adult can write a comment. It is also important that your child is read with at home. It is expected that your child reads several pages a night and talks about their book, amounting to 10-15mins each night. Please sign and make a comment, this helps us to know how your child's reading is coming along at home
We also visit the Library in, Saint Margaret Mary Annexe, to choose and borrow books every two weeks.
We love to learn, grow and play together in Year 1! Please keep checking our class page for photographs of our learning and any trips we go on!
