Welcome Message

Welcome to Class One


The school day begins at 8.45 when we will take the register and move straight into Little Wandle reading groups.

After this, we will move into English, then maths which is taught separately to each year group. There will be time built in for year 1 to access continuous provision during the day.  In the afternoon, we will have phonics and spelling sessions straight after lunch, followed by two afternoon lessons and a short break time. The school day ends at 3.15 pm. 


We will have PE lessons on Wednesday and Friday afternoon from the second week of term, but I would like kit to be sent to school on Monday and stay in all week if possible.  Our PE sessions will be gymnastics and wall/ net games. 


Our science topic is animals including humans in year and all living things in Year 2 and we will also be observing seasonal changes. In geography we will be learning about India and comparing it to Appleby.


Homework and spellings will be set on a Friday, to be returned on the following Friday. 


 We encourage children to read as often as possible at home to an adult, as this will greatly support the development of their literacy skills. Children who read regularly at home make more rapid progress in all subjects. We have a “three times a week” reading challenge in our class to encourage reading at home with children who read five times a week getting additional dojo points.  


 If you have any questions, please message me on Seesaw, or use the Contact Me page to arrange an appointment.
