Welcome to Class 1!
We are all smarties and have made some class rules that we will follow. Have a look at what we decided our golden rules would be:
Class 1’s Golden Rules!
We will come to school with a smile!
We will try to be kind and help everyone.
We will listen carefully to each other.
We will follow instructions sensibly.
We will play nicely with each other and share.
When we are on the carpet, we will sit smartly with our legs crossed.
We will try to remember to put up our hand up.
We will try to do our best with everything.
Literacy and Phonics
In Class 1 we follow Letters and Sounds. This gives children a fantastic start and we ensure all the children are reading appropriate books to their ability. Reading at home helps your child improve their reading and writing skills dramatically and I thank you for your support in reading with your child every day.
As well as our Letters and Sounds lesson we have daily literacy lessons. We follow sequences using books to help hook the children to really enjoy their writing.
Please see this website for advice and guidance in supporting your child to read at home including how to pronounce each sound as well as segmenting and blending words: https://oak-view-academy.co.uk/parents/reading/
We use White Rose Maths to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We make our maths lessons fun, engaging and practical.
Exciting things we have got up to!
