Team Halton

 

This is our Year 1 class.  Our class teacher is Miss Helm; our teaching assistant is Mrs Jenkinson.

 

Life in Year 1

Year 1 is a very busy year as we start working on the National Curriculum. There is so much to learn but we always have lots and lots of fun. In the Autumn Term our classroom will have continuous provision (activity tables) available to the children to help their transition from Early Years. We work as one big team encouraging everyone as we learn.

Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure full PE kit is in school and all items of clothing are clearly named. We also have Forest School fortnightly on Friday afternoons.

Please listen to your child read regularly at home. It is very important that the children bring their reading books into school every day. We change our reading books on a Monday and Thursday.

Knowledge Organisers

A Knowledge Organiser is a set of key vocabulary, facts and information on a topic that your child needs to be able to know and recall by the end of the topic. Please use these at home as conversation starters to discuss learning and as a way of helping your child commit their learning to long-term memory (for example, you may want to cut up the vocabulary and meanings and play matching pairs or encourage your child to learn how to spell the words.

Wider Opportunities in Year 1

 

Spiritual Leaders

As Spiritual Leaders in each year group, all children are given the opportunity to prepare the weekly class worship and lead on the planning and delivery of a whole school worship once every half term. At the end of the child-led worship, the Spiritual Leaders are then presented with a certificate to recognise what they have done within their year group.

The Spiritual Leaders are responsible for ensuring that their class reflective worship area is clean, tidy and up to date with their learning in R.E. as well as the termly Gospel Value.

Spiritual Leaders are also able to participate in a weekly lunchtime club to develop their knowledge of our school vision, values and understanding of worship.
