Welcome to year 1! We have two year 1 classes, each with their own teacher and teaching assistant. Mrs Sedman teaches in 1E on a Monday and Mrs Gulzar teaches 1E on a Tuesday to Friday. Miss Doherty teaches 1F everyday. In year 1, there are 2 teaching assistants – Mrs Young and Mrs Morrall.
We put a huge focus in learning to decode and read fluently in year 1. Reading well helps us build confidence, unlock other areas of the curriculum and be more independent. To helps us do this, we ask that parents listen to their child read every single day. If you find any words or sounds difficult, just make a note of it in your child’s reading journal and we will pick this up in school. During the summer term, the children in year 1 complete a national phonics screening assessment. Teachers in school administer this and you will get the results of this assessment in your child’s end of year report.
We have put together some information below to help you see a little more about what we will be learning in year 1:
The year 1 class teachers are available to have a quick chat with whoever brings you to school on a morning or collects you at pick up time. If they need a longer chat, please ask them to make an appointment to see them via the school office.
