Hi and welcome to 1S’ page :)
Our class teacher is called Miss Spillman. We are so lucky to have other adults in our classroom who also help us each day, Mrs. Durgaj and Ms. Aster. We also enjoy Ms Chiassaro coming to read with us each day, and some of us also work with Ms Newman, who takes children to do interventions. In 1S, we are all so ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’. Each week, our class bear, Billy, chooses one child who has displayed our 3 rules, to go on an adventure with over the weekend!
In our classroom we have lots of amazing areas. There is an jungle reading corner so we can read and enjoy different types of books; an art area with a huge art table so we can get creative; a construction area where we can use different materials and mechanisms in our designs; a shop area where we can have fun learning about different coins; a home corner area where we enjoy cooking up different foods and looking after babies; a writing area where we can practise our super handwriting and write for different purposes and we have a Maths area where we can practice our number, shape and measuring skills in different ways. We also have lots of interactive displays where we can practice our times tables, our SPaG and phonics.
Our days are filled with lots of exciting lessons, including: RE, Maths, Reading, English, Handwriting, Phonics, Science, Computing (taught by Mr. Kearney), Music and P.E.
We do Topic every Friday in 1S- we do lots of different things in Topic including Geography, History, English, Art and Design and Technology. This term, we have learnt all about some amazing artists like Matisse and Picasso. We will also be exploring different mechanisms as part of our Design and Technology learning. Our Topic links closely with other Curriculum Studies, such as English and Maths. Throughout the year we will be going on trips and having workshops that will help us understand our Topics- information to follow.
We have P.E twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We do P.E both outside and inside so we need to make sure we have the right kit. We can bring our P.E kits and leave them at school until half term so that we don’t have to remember each week.
Our learning doesn't stop at school that is why we get homework. Our homework always relates to what we are doing in class, so it helps us a lot. We have home reading and phonics to do every night to help us be super star readers. On Fridays, we also get English homework and Maths homework (which is set on Mathletics). Friday homework is due back the following Friday. The Wednesday Word goes home every week, we use this in our Class Worship sessions the following week in school, so it is great to read through it at home first!
In 1S we are such super stars and Ready, Respectful Safe role models in our school. We are kind, helpful and always try our best. We are very excited for our super year ahead!
