Welcome to Year 1. Year 1 is 1RP (Mrs Preston and Mrs Yorke) and 1JS/EJ (Mrs Sivarajan, Mrs Jenkinson, Mrs Bell and Miss Carter)
Welcome to Year 1. In Year 1 we have a full time class teacher, Mrs Preston, who is supported by Mrs Yorke in 1 RP. In 1JS/EJ teaching duties are shared between Mrs Sivarajan (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Jenkinson (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Mrs Sivarajan is supported by Miss Carter, whilst Mrs Jenkinson is assisted by Mrs Bell. We also have Mrs Ellis (1JS/EJ) and Mrs Firth and Mrs Bradbury (1RP) providing additional specific support.
On Wednesday afternoons Mrs Martin will be teaching PE to both classes whilst Miss Cooper will be leading Art and Music sessions. Our second PE sessions are currently timetabled for Friday mornings.
Show and Tell sessions will begin next week (week commencing 11th September). In the next day or two we will be sending out a letter containing details of our timetable for your children's presentations. We tend to allocate a particular week in order that we can spread the sessions over the course of the half term but we have always been more than happy to be flexible about the timings. As always, Show and Tell is linked to our half termly topic. We are kicking off with a brand new topic, 'Toy Stories', and over the next few weeks we plan to explore and compare old and new toys, look at stories about toys, make our own moving toys and do lots more fun toy-related actvities. We will shortly be sending out details of our first class trip of the year.
Reading books, reading records and target cards will begin to start coming home with your children over the next few days or so. Please see any of our team if you have any questions.
We are looking forwards to meeting with as many of you as possible at our information meeting later this month.
