Year 1

Welcome 1T and 1/2H

 

1T - Mrs Tite and Miss Brennan, 1/2H - Miss Harris and Mrs Pitt

 

We have had a great start to the year so far. The children have come in to school with lovely smiles and have enjoyed seeing their friends again. Although the daily routine is very different to what they are used to they are adapting well and are comfortable in their new classrooms. We look forward to spending the year with them all and watching them develop both socially and academically.

Spellings

 

Your child has come home with a spelling booklet today. There are 6 weeks worth of spellings that your child is expected to learn. We are beginning on Week 2 (18-24 Sept), please help your child to learn the words for the current week and they will then have a test on Thursday (24th). This is in line with the rest of the school and it is expected that your child will learn as may of the words as possible. The best way to teach them to spell these words is by repeated practise. Buy a little whiteboard and practise writing them every evening with your child. They will not be able to retain them if they only look at them the night before.
