Welcome to Year 1 - Seacole
Welcome to Seacole Class!
My name is Miss McInnes and I am the class teacher in Seacole Class. Mrs Kaur and Mrs Kerrry are our teaching assistants who work with all of the children across Year 1.
During the autumn term, the children will be building on their knowledge of number through counting, adding and subtracting. They will also be looking more deeply at shape and measurement, building upon what they have learnt in foundation.
In English we will be linking our learning to our ‘Heroes’ topic, using books such as ‘Superworm’ and ‘Supertato’ to encourage the children’s creativity. The children will be focusing on applying their phonics when writing and using a capital letter and full stop when writing sentences. I am looking forward to seeing lots of fabulous writing!
During the first half term, our topic is ‘Heroes’. The children will be learning about Heroes from the past, as well as modern day heroes. During the first week of term the children have focused on how they can be a hero at school. They have had some fantastic ideas about working hard and being kind. It has been great to see how engaged the children have already been with our topic!
Seacole class have PE every Tuesday and Thursday.
Please make sure that your child brings in their PE kits on these days. We are happy for you to leave them at school in our PE box.
They will need a white t-shirt, navy/black shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Please make sure that all items are named and in a PE bag.
During the autumn term the children will be taking part in gymnastics and competitive games.
The children will be taking part in daily phonics sessions to support their reading. Please support us by reading with your child at home.
Things you can do at home
Please read with your child at least 3 times every week for 5 minutes a day. Please make sure to sign your childs diary as we have a reward system with raffle tickets for children who read and record in their diaries 3 times a week. Please encourage your child to use their phonics whilst reading at home.
Practising number bonds to 10 and 20 for example 2+8=10, 5+5=10 etc will be very helpful. If your child struggles with number recognition, please practise this at home. For example, can you find numbers on houses, signs, around the home or anywhere else?!
Things to Remember
- Please make sure all items of clothing are clearly named.
- Please ensure your child brings their reading book and diary to school every day - we wil endeavour to change books once a week.
We have Forest School's on Monday morning so please make sure that your child comes to school with warm clothing. Your child may also wear wellies!
