Welcome to Class 1- Miss Marsh

Class Information

Hello and welcome to Class 1's web-page.  

There is lots of exciting learning planned for this Autumn term and we are kick-starting our school year with the topic of 'Significant Individuals' which we will be linking with National Space Week in October. This focus will also link to other subjects across the curriculum, such as History, English and Art.  For more detail about our curriculum plans for this term, please see the subject overview. 

Keep an eye on our Twitter feed @mwpsclass1 to see what we are getting up to!

Feel free to talk to me about any questions or concerns you have. I am happy to talk over the phone or after school.

Many thanks,

Miss Marsh

Some Useful Information for Class 1

Homework

Homework will go out on a Friday, to be completed and returned to school by the following Friday. Expect lots of stickers, smiley faces and house-points for completing your homework! 

Maths

Maths is fun! We will be following the Teaching for Mastery approach, which I believe helps all children to make progress. By the end of this year the children need to be confident with their number facts within 10 and also counting in 10s, 2s and 5s, so please help your little one by practising at home as much as you can!    

Writing

We will be using The Write Stuff to help progress our writing. We use the FANTASTICs to help us write and use some amazing vocabulary! We have some exciting writing topics in store to inspire our budding authors! 

Reading

We will start the year with 1:1 reading in class and will progress to guided reading in groups with an adult later in the term. It would be great if you could also listen or read to your child at home every day too.

Phonics & Spellings

Phonics will be taught daily. We will be starting with Phase 3 Letters and Sounds.We link our spellings with our phonic sounds for the week. Spellings will be sent home and will be tested every Friday morning.Try to practise as many times as you can. 

Forest School

We will be wondering down to the woods on a Monday afternoon, so please send your child in with forest school kit. Plenty of layers, waterproofs and wellies will be needed!

 PE

Please ensure that PE kits are in school for gymnastics with Mr Hulme on a Friday.
