Hello Year 1 and welcome to our class page!
In our class our teachers are Mrs Chapman and Mrs Fowler. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Whalley and Mrs Cooper. Miss Heath is our lunchtime supervisor.
Our P.E. days are every Tuesday and Wednesday, so remember to bring your P.E. kits in on a Tuesday and we will send them home for a wash on Wednesdays.
Start and Finish Times
Year 1 are expected in school at 9:15am and can be collected at 3:30pm. (Specific children's timings may be different if they siblings in other classes.)
We have forest school on a Friday afternoon every third week. We will give you lots of reminders of when this will be so that you can remember to bring your forest school kit for this!
Fruit is provided for free at break time, or you can bring in your own healthy snack from home. This could be some fruit, vegetable, rice cake etc. Every child should try to have their own water bottle for in class. This will stay on the tables so it is important that it is only water inside the bottle.
Reading Books and Home Learning
All of the children now have their own reading book. Please bring this in every day to school as the children will need these in class and we will also change them each week. The children should try to read for 5/10 minutes at home every night. Please make a comment and sign the reading record so we know how your child is getting on with their reading at home. Soon we will be sending out home learning and spellings to learn each week on a Friday. This will be expected in the following Thursday morning and spellings will be tested on a Friday.
Please check Class Dojo regularly as we often send messages out on there. If you need us please also don’t hesitate to send us a message.
Autumn 1 Learning
In our first half term of Year 1 we will be looking at Place Value in Maths, following the White Rose Year 1 scheme. In English we are looking at rhyming words, which will include us listening to and singing lots of nursery rhymes. We will also be looking at the skills we need to write simple sentences, for example: capital letters, full stops, spaces between words. For our Topic based learning we are looking at our local area which is Dukinfield. This will be linked to our Science work where we will be looking at trees and plants.
