Welcome to

Year 1!

I am looking forward to getting to know you and working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year.

I hope that you enjoy the new challenges and approaches to learning that Year 1 has to offer! 

In the classroom this year there will be Mrs Zinna (Class teacher), Miss Bryce, Mrs Campbell and Ms Miller (Teaching Assistants).


Transition from Reception to Year 1

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners. Please don’t hesitate to come and see me either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.

Class 1 Teacher


Reading in Year 1...

Your child will be given a set of books and a reading diary to bring home this will be returned daily. The children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school and at home with enhancement and library books. Your child will have phonic homework which will begin early in the autumn term.


Celebration

Each Friday children will be picked for a special certificate for excellent work or kindness.

Every day we have a happy box which your child will get to put their name in if they have worked hard or followed rules well.  Every night 1 name will be picked from the happy box and will receive a prize.  Every day someone will bring home the class bear and a diary to write about what you have done together

Please return the bear and the diary daily.


General Reminders…

  • The children will be doing PE on Mondays (Indoor lesson) and Friday (Outdoor lesson-children to come into school wearing their outdoor P.E kit). Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (Indoor PE) and that all items are clearly labelled. We encourage children to practise getting dressed at home to help them get changed quickly in school!
  • Any letters or reply slips, which need to be returned, can be put in your child’s book bag. The children are encouraged to check them each morning and give things in before the register.
  • The children can bring their own water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day and they can top up the water from a fountain. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle.
