Year 1

Welcome to St Piran Class

 

Hello there!  My name is Mrs Green and I will be your child’s class teacher.  I hope to make the transition from Reception Class into Year 1 as seamless as possible and make

Mrs K Green
(Year 1)

you and your child feel very welcome as you begin the first year of Keystage 1 together.

Each term our learning will be based upon a new topic and you will receive plenty of information about these as we progress through the year.

Here is some other information:

READING

Your child will be heard read from their reading book once a week by myself or another member of the team.  During this session they will have their reading book changed.  If you would like to change your child’s reading book more frequently, please help yourself from the colour coded boxes just outside the classroom.

In addition, reading is taught to the whole class every day and I will invite your child to read out loud during this session so I can continually monitor their progress.

PHONICS

We practise and learn new letters and sounds every day too!  Phonics are integral to reading and writing progress.  It is a very important part of our learning in Year 1 and that’s why your child will be assessed in June, along with every other Year 1 child nationally, to ensure they are making good progress.

 

HOME LEARNING

Children will bring their ‘Home Learning Book’ home every Friday.   Please aim to complete the activity inside together and return to school by the following Wednesday.  This gives me time to mark your child’s book and stick in something new.  From January, your child will have spellings to practise at home too.

PE

We have 2 PE lessons a week – Monday and Wednesday.  Your child will need a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers or black plimsolls.  They keep these clothes in a PE bag that stays on their peg at school.  PLEASE ENSURE EVERY ITEM IS CLEARLY NAMED.

WATER BOTTLE – Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school every day.

SNACKS – Fresh fruit is provided every morning free of charge.

PARENT HELPERS – Parent helpers are very welcome in the classroom or on class trips.  Please let me know if this is something you are interested in.

 

ANY MORE QUESTIONS?

Please come and have a chat before or after school.  Alternatively, you can leave me a message on Class Dojo or email me at kgreen@perranporth.cornwall.sch.uk
