Welcome to Class 1!
Hello and welcome to Year 1. My name is Mrs Dudding and I am the Year 1 class teacher. Miss Young also works in class and is our learning support assistant.
Our first topic this half term is All About Animals. In class we have a Zoo Vet role play corner, topic tables and a craft table with activities and resources linked to our learning.
Every day, we have a phonics session in class to practise saying, reading and writing letter sounds and words. On a Friday, children will come home with a few words to practise writing and an activity linked to the sounds that we will look at the following week. They will also bring home a maths activity. This homework is sent out on a Friday and collected in by the following Friday.
Home reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday if they have been read. Please listen to your child read at home as often as you can, and talk to them and ask questions about the story. Please can children bring their home reading diary and books into school every day.
We have 2 PE sessions a week - on Monday with me and on Thursday with a sports coach in school. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit into school on the first day after each holiday and then leave your child's PE kit in school - we will send them home at the end of each half term.
At Our Lady's, we are always pleased to meet our parents. If you have any questions or would like to discuss something with me, I will be at the infant door at the start and end of the day where I can take a quick message. If you need longer, I am available most days after school – please ask me or at the school office.
Mrs Dudding, Year 1 teacher.
