Welcome to Year One!
This years Year 1 teachers are Mrs Davies, Mrs Williams & Miss Ayre.
This term our topic is: Spots, Stripes, Feathers and Fur!
During our ‘freaky Friday’ sessions, we discuss in our groups what we’d like to do next week from the story. The children enjoy having their chosen activities in the enhanced areas the following week.
Information For Parents
If you haven't already, please could you sign up to the Dojo app! You should all have received a password to set up the Dojo.
We will be using Dojo for communicating with you, setting homework tasks and for rewards for the children. It is working really well in class and the children enjoy seeing how many 'dojo's' they have!
(Please could you upload any homework the children complete to their portfolio...instructions below)
Below are the first 100 High Frequency Words. Please practice these with your children at home. It is important that they learn to read these words to help improve their reading.
Also, all children have been given their Reading Eggs password! This is a brilliant online app to assist the children’s reading!
Here is one of our Year 1 classrooms
Our Favourite 5
We have decided to introduce ‘Our Favourite 5’ in to the foundation phase classes. The idea behind this is that each term we choose 5 different stories that we read as a class, repeatedly until the children know the stories off by heart!
This is beneficial for many reasons as they are still learning from the pictures and words, they are experiencing stories together and they are learning complex information through repetition!
Here are some photos of us enjoying Year 1!
