Hello and welcome to Year 1
We are really looking forward to getting to know our new children and families and have already had a fantastic start to the year. I am Miss Lekka and I am the class teacher. We also have Rana and Carol with us. We have cross-curricular lessons throughout the year, which makes the learning more interesting and fun.
It is really important that the children are reading to someone every night. This makes such a difference to the children’s learning and progress so please ensure lots of reading is happening at home. Book bags need to be in every day with your comment on the reading record. Our Reading challenge will help children achieve this and earn a reward!
We have a spelling test every Friday. Homework is due on a Thursday, so that it can be marked with the new homework ready to go home on Friday.
Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday (during Autumn term) and therefore children need to bring their PE kits on those days.
