Class One

Dear Parents/Carers,

A warm welcome to you all!

We hope you have had a restful summer and that you and your children are looking forward to the year ahead.

Your child’s teachers in Year 1 are Mrs Weatherspoon (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 0.5 AM) and Mrs Harper (Thursday 0.5 AM and PM and Friday).  Mrs Turner is our teaching assistant. 

Here are a few things that go on in Year 1:

  • Reading books are changed on a Monday and Thursday. Please try to read with your child every night, children make a lot of progress where there is input at home. When you have heard your child read, put your initials next to the book title and feel free to write comments in your child’s diary. They will often read at school as part of a group which gives them a chance to discuss the books together.

Occasionally the children will bring home spellings on a Friday. Please practice these with your child as they will have a spelling test on the following Friday. We will let you know how they have got on.

  • PE kits and water bottles need to be brought in to school every Monday and will be sent home on a Friday. 

We are all looking forward to working with your children in the next academic year.  We hope it will be a happy, fun and successful one! Please come and speak to any of us if you have any questions or concerns.

Best wishes,

The Class 1 Team
