Welcome to Year 1

I am Miss Davies, your class teacher.

Our PE day is on a Friday. Please remember to bring PE kits into school and leave them on the peg until half term when they can be taken home for washing. Our PE kits consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts and a pair of pumps. Parents, please put your child’s name in their PE kit (and other clothing). If your child wears earrings, please remove them for this day.
Spelling tests are on a Friday. The children will be given a week to learn their spellings before the test.

Homework is sent out on a Thursday. The children will have maths and English homework. This is expected in for the following Monday. Parents please support your child with their homework but we encourage the children to attempt to write their homework by themselves.
Reading books will be changed once a week. Please read and discuss the story with your child throughout the week. The homework in their diaries should be completed in order for the book to be changed.

With the support of Mrs. Hussain we plan to have an enjoyable year. We will be learning about Traditional Tales and different poems in English. We will be using drama and role play to develop our speaking and listening skills. During our maths lessons we will be developing our counting skills, number recognition and writing and we will be looking at shapes. In our foundation subjects we will be looking at our local area and Australia, Florence Nightingale and the Great Fire of London, Humans (including animals) and plants, beebots and we will be discussing different faiths and religions.

I am looking forward to the year ahead of us and getting to know the children and their parents.

Miss Davies
