Welcome to Year 1!
Year 1 are taught by Mrs Golding from Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Hogan on Thursday and Friday. Our Teaching and Learning Assistant is Mrs Hickey and she is in class every day. Mrs Gregg joins us on a Wednesday afternoon for RE.
All the children will be heard to read at least once a week, by an adult in school, so it is very important that their book bags (please, no backpacks) and reading books are in school every day. Children will also be heard to read in their Read Write Inc groups.
Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Children need to have a full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt or polo shirt and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.
Please, please, please put your child's name on EVERYTHING. It is amazing how easily the children lose or misplace items from their PE kits, their uniforms, their coats, water bottles and even their shoes!
The children get very thirsty and it is important that they bring water in a clean, labelled bottle, each day. They are encouraged to drink throughout the day and to refill their bottles from our filtered water dispenser.
