In Year 1 the teachers are Mrs Kelly and Mrs Murray. Our Year 1 Teaching Assistant is Mrs Kirwan. There are 24 children in our class and we’re all looking forward to a great year!
Writing themes include stories linked to our own experiences, instructions and repeated patterns. We will be concentrating on writing on the line, spaces between words, full stops and forming letters correctly.
In reading, we will begin ‘Guided Reading,’ where we read and talk about the text in small groups. We will make predictions about characters and events, and we will describe settings and characters.
We will have a daily phonics lesson – please see www.letters-and-sounds.com for all the different phases we will be covering (phase 3, 4 and 5).
Please remember to listen to your child read every day as it is so important for them to practise the skills they are learning in school.
In PE we will be doing games and gymnastics – our PE days are Monday and Friday and we will be working inside and outside, depending on the weather.
