Welcome to the Summer Term in Year One!
We hope that all the children have had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready to work hard this term. Miss Swinburne and myself are job sharing the responsibility of the Year One class. The structure of this is myself working Mon, Tue and Thursday morning with a full day Friday (teaching the English & Maths) and Miss Swinburne working the 4 afternoons covering the foundation subjects. Mrs Irving will be teaching Wednesday morning as usual.
Reading books will be changed as they are returned. Mrs Hill does her very best to get them all changed within 24 hours. Miss Swinburne will be doing Guided Reading in the afternoons where a record will be kept and we will endeavour to listen to each child read once a week.
PE will be on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a full kit in school. We might even be able to make the most of some sunshine this term!
Homework will be given on a Monday. Please can I have the books returned by the Friday so I can mark and return the books the following Monday. Homework activities should take no longer than 20minutes. Activities will be to consolidate work carried out in class or target work.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Miss Swinburne via email; alternatively you can arrange an appointment time at the school office.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to working with your children.
