Welcome to Year One.....we are Miss Richards (1P) and Mrs Ferguson (1G). We are very excited to be part of the Year One learning Journey with your child! The work outlines on our class pages will be updated each half term and this will inform you about what your child will be learning in school. A reading book will be sent home regularly for you to support and enjoy the reading experience with your child and we, as class teachers, will hear your child read often during Guided Reading and Phonic sessions within the school day.
Phonics, English, Maths and Guided Reading takes place daily. Year One will be taught Science once a week and Topic twice a week. They are taught handwriting once a week. The children are learning to join their writing.
PE is taught by specialist teachers on a Tuesday and Thursday.
