Welcome Parents
About Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Miss Carnaby is the class teacher of 30 children in Year 1. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Ellison who helps support our learning.

Our class is a friendly and happy place to learn. We have a cloakroom area and toilets nearby. We also have areas in our class for construction, craft, computing, reading, writing and number work.

Each day we begin our morning with a class prayer. We use Read Write Inc to help us with our reading and writing and also celebrate Collective Worship. We have busy days which help us to be better readers, writers and mathematicians. Our topics help us to develop knowledge and skills in other subject areas.

We have reading books to take home and spellings to learn weekly. Homework is half termly and we are allowed to loan a library book each week from our wonderful school library.

Our outstanding behaviour, effort and work is recognised in various ways. We are proud to earn points for our teams for behaviour linked to our Code of Conduct, e.g. showing good manners and being helpful and respectful around school. Dojo points are individually awarded for class based activities, e.g. giving excellent answers and working hard. A ‘Star of the Week’ certificate is also presented each week to a member of Class 1 who has excelled or stood out from the rest of the class whether that be for effort, behaviour or attitude.

We hope you have enjoyed reading about Year 1 and we are sure you will agree it is a great place to be.
