Welcome to Year One

Welcome to Year One. We are four form entry and have four classes in this year group. The Year One staff team are:

  • Rebecca McGeown, Kerry Bragg, Anna Chloewka, Hannah Jones, Donna Promubol, Katie Smith, Lisa Larkin.

 

Our classes are named using the Year Group followed by the Class Teacher’s initials.

We are going to be studying and exploring six exciting topics this academic year. These are:

  • Childhood
  • Bright Lights, Big City
  • School Days
  • Rio de Vida

Topics will be explored through all areas of the curriculum.

Rewards

We use a range of rewards throughout Year One from stickers, star of the day, star of the week, dojo points and weekly Celebration Certificates which are presented in our Celebration Assemblies. We use school coms to communicate with parents.

In Year One, the children will take a Phonics Screening assessment in June. The children will complete a reading test to show how they blend phonemes together to create real and nonsense words.  An evening parent information meeting will be held to provide more information about this. We follow the Little Wandle scheme, to develop phonics, reading and writing skills.

 

Throughout the year, parents will be invited to share their children's achievements in class, join in with the children’s experiences and come on school trips and local visits if able to volunteer some time.

Home Learning

  • Reading
