Year 1 2018 - 2019
Year 1 Teacher
Hello and welcome to Miss Cookson & Mrs Marzolo's classes!
In Year 1 we continue the learning journey from Early Years to further develop the core skills across the curriculum. We then build upon these to ensure our children excel and achieve their very best across a broad and balanced curriculum.
Please see the curriculum leaflet below for information about what we will be learning this term.
We and our TA, Mrs Tomkinson, work closely together to ensure all children are happy, safe and enjoy their time at Hartford Primary School.
In Year 1 (and throughout KS1), we teach phonics to support early reading and spelling. We follow Letters and Sounds and children in Year 1 start phase 5. Our children are benchmarked every half term to make sure they are on the right colour of book to appropriately challenge them and we use a range of reading schemes to engage our children, including Bug Club.
Things to remember:
Homework: The menu will be set during the first week of each half term and due in on the last Monday of the half term to allow time to share the children's work. Mymaths will be set every two weeks.
Reading: The children are expected to read at least three times per week for 10 minutes and to change their reading book in the mornings regularly. Please write a comment in the children’s reading records each time to let us know how they are getting on with their reading at home..
PE: Mr Cairns will be teaching PE on a Tuesday. The children will also have an additional PE lesson on a Thursday, which is led by their teacher. Please ensure children have a fully labelled PE kit (indoor and outdoor clothing) in school each week.
Mrs Gatiss will be teaching Year 1 French on a Tuesday.
Water Bottles: We encourage the children to bring a water bottle each day, please ensure it is only water. If your child is having a packed lunch please send a separate drink.
Class Assembly: Your child will be involved in a class assembly once every term. You will be notified of the dates on the whole school newsletter.
We are very much looking forward to getting to know you and your chidlren over the next year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us at the end of the day.
