Autumn Term 2018
My name is Mrs Hall and I am the Year One classteacher. I would like to welcome both children and parents to Year One. We have a great team of staff to support your children this year with Mrs Durkan, Ms Parry and Miss Colleran . Here, I will try to give you some information about our class routines and about some of the exciting things to come!
Children come straight into school from 9.45 and begin a basic skills activity in class before the start of the day. If parents have any messages just mention them to to the staff on the playground doors and they will relay them back to class. Good attendance and punctuality is vitally important for your child's progress. Please make us aware of any medical issues and provide up to date inhalers as soon as possible. Medical forms must be filled in at the school office. PE is on Thursday afernoon and all children require a PE kit as soon as possible. All children should have a book bag and read at home every night. Book bags can be brought in each day to change books. Reading with your child will ensure they improve their skills and confidence. If you attended the parents meeting on Friday 14th September you will have received a newsletter with lots more information, but don't worry if you were unable to make it as you will receive a copy shortly.
In Year One this term we will be learning about Ourselves in a Science based topic and learning about the importance of healthy eating and exercise. As well as working hard in Phonics through our Read,Write Inc scheme, we will be reading stories, doing lots of writing, learning our numbers and having lots of fun too!
If there is anything else that you would like to know about the class routines don't hesitate to ask any of the Year 1 team.
I will try to put some photos, children's work and information on our class activities on this page throughout the year.
Many thanks for your support.
