A great big hello and welcome to Year 1!
My name is Mrs Cowell, I am the class teacher and I have been at St. Paul's for 8 years. In my spare time I like to go out with my friends and family or stay in watching films. I love pinterest and clothes shopping!
Miss Riding is our Teaching Assistant and she has worked here for just over a year. She has two boys at St. Paul's. When she is not working hard at school, she loves spending time with her family and friends.
Our topics over the year are as follows:
Autumn 1 - Dinosaur Planet
Autumn 2 - Superheroes
Spring 1 - Space
Spring 2 - Enchanted Woodland
Summer 1 - Bright lights, Big city (London)
Summer 2 Splendid Skies (weather).
In Year 1, we encourage the children to be independent. In the morning we expect the children to put their reading books and record into the box. We change reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday but if their books need changing, they may change them any day but they must try to remember to do this by themselves.
New spellings will be put in reading records on Mondays along with the results from the previous week. The spelling test takes place every Friday.
Maths and English homework will be sent out every Wednesday and collected in for marking on the following Monday. The work we send home reflects what we are learning in class.
P.E is every Tuesday afternoon.
This half term we are very excited to be learning all about Enchanted Woodland! If you have anything at home, which is related to our topic, that you think the children would like to see please send it in!
Many thanks for your continued support,
