Welcome to Class One 2020/21
Teacher: Mrs Brierley
Teaching Assistants: Miss Luckett and Mrs Murphy
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.
Our topics this term are London and the Great Fire of London.
We will be using 'Letters and Sounds' to teach phonics. 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 Monday morning. Continuous provision is in place to promote creative learning and to allow the children to apply their knowledge and skills.
Children have a fiction and non fiction book to read at home and we politely request that they read with an adult at home three times a week. Children also have their own 'Reading Eggs' account to support this.
We regularly use Class Dojo to communicate with parents and to provide learning materials for pupils who have to self isolate due to Covid. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble logging in.
We recognise that you may have some concerns because of the amount of school the children have missed due to lock-down. We are doing everything we can to help everyone catch up. Please get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss.
Please see our planning, updates and photos (below).
We have a new reading den in Class One. The children have been very excited to find out that we have some very special residents!
