Welcome to Class One 2023/24
Teacher: Miss Scatcherd
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Simmons
In Class One our year one and year two children work together to learn and develop their knowledge and skills in a friendly and colourful, creative environment in which we celebrate the uniqueness of each child.
We follow the Jolly Phonics programme which is supported with reading books which the children take home. The children will be completing lots of practical maths, reading, writing, role play and creative activities (using a multi sensory approach). Where possible, these will be linked to the topic.
The children participate in differentiated phonics and guided reading groups and receive individual support as needed. They also have a spelling check every week and will begin to have times tables checks as the year goes on. Continuous provision is in place to promote creative learning and to allow the children to apply their knowledge and skills. We also have a wonderful outdoor area which is used daily to support the teaching of maths and English.
Children have a Jolly Phonics reading book to take home, which we politely request is read as much as possible.
We regularly use Class Dojo to communicate with parents. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble logging in.
Please see our planning, updates and photos (below).
Welcome to class one. This term we will be learning about 'The great outdoors'. We will be learning about living things and their habitats, making wildlife collages, reading the book 'The hodgeheg' and thinking about how we can design an animal friendly outdoor area.
This term PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday.
Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Fridays. Children should read these at least 3 times per week.
Homework and spellings will be given out every Friday and expected to be returned on the following Thursday.
On Mondays and alternate Thursdays Mrs Simmons will take the class whilst I have planning time.
We have lots of exciting things going on this term! If you have any questions at all please do contact me either on class dojo or through the school office.
