Year 1 - Elm

Welcome to Elm Class (Year 1)
Welcome to Elm Class. The teaching team this year is Mrs Johnson on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Matthews on a Friday, ably assisted by Miss Reynoldson all week. Miss Reynoldson will cover PPA every Thursday afternoon. The Elm Class staff will ensure that all children are happy and develop a love of learning. We will begin the first term by transitioning from Reception into Year 1 with child led and play based learning whilst incorporating some whole class teaching and learning. Throughout the year we will gradually work towards a more structured learning approach to prepare the children for year 2.



Our Autumn Newsletter is now on the 'Letters' tab at the bottom of our class page. Please have a read through and don't hesitate to contact us on class dojo if you have any questions.


Reading Books

In year 1 we will change reading books each week so please send your child's book in on their allocated day. They will receive a phonics book inline with the sounds they are learning as well as a fiction or non-fiction text. You can also make use of our online reading books (please see the 'phonics, reading and writing' tab at the bottom of the page for more information).

If the books are not returned on the correct day, they will be changed the following week.
