Welcome to Year 1 Class website page.
Our Lady's School is a caring family, where, with Jesus in our hearts, we value everyone and encourage them to be the best that they can be.
Hello year 1
In class with me (Mrs Dudding) is Ms Devoy, Mrs Cassidy and Mr Bennison. On Monday morning, Mr Bennison also teaches maths and handwriting.
Our P.E. day each week is on a Monday with a sports coach. Please come into school on Monday wearing an outdoor P.E. kit (tracksuit or leggings and jumper). You do not need your uniform on Monday.
Each day we have a guided reading session. During this time there will be group reading with me and Mr Bennison, as well as independent reading activities and free reading time. We also read and listen to stories on Get Epic on the tablets (see the link below).
Our reading scheme is based on the Oxford Reading Tree books. Home reading books are changed on Friday but please bring your book bag in every day as I will be reading with you throughout the week. At the moment we are not sending home the yellow reading records.
Each day we have a phonics session based on Letters and Sounds. In phonics we learn and practise saying and writing sounds. We also learn tricky words and develop skills in reading and spelling words. At the end of each half term we assess the sounds and tricky words that have been learnt, as well as the development of reading skills.
Homework is set on the online site - Seesaw (please see the link below). Homework tasks are based around phonics and number practise - such as the times tables. You can also practise your letter sounds and maths skills by playing online games (please see the links below).
Please bring in a water bottle each day - these will be sent home at the end of each day.
At the moment only coats, book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes (if you have a packed lunch) can be bought into school.
Every morning I will be waiting on the playground in our zone (3). Year 1 start at 8:50.
Morning break time is 10-10:15.
Lunch time is 12-1 and our class will be eating dinner in the school hall.
Afternoon break time is 2-2:10.
Year 1 finish school at 3:10.
