This year the children will be taught by Mrs Bennett on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. During the afternoons, the Year 1 children will join the Year 2 class. Mrs Kelsall will also support the children in the afternoons. This will provide an opportunity to work on team challenges, widen friendship groups across Year 1 and 2.
This is a wonderful age for children to share special experiences and learn new skills. We encourage the children to take on challenges and extend their learning through a variety of creative learning opportunities and regular practice of the basic skills in Phonics, Writing and Maths. We encourage the children to take responsibility for their own learning and promote independence at this age.
Reading is a high priority in Year 1 and therefore we have organised many opportunities for home and school reading. We use our daily Read Write Inc sessions to hear all children in a small group. We aim to support the children's comprehension and understanding of the text through a variety of reading tasks linked to various texts. We believe that for children to learn they need to be happy and well supported. Lessons should be fun and inspiring. The children's work is valued and recognised, and we feel it is very important for the children to have a caring and sharing attitude towards each other and encourage polite and well-mannered behaviour.
