All about Year 1
Teacher: Mrs Moore
Teacher: Ms Paynter
Support Staff: Miss Bricknell
Year one has two classrooms:
Dosbarth Ogmore - class teacher Mrs Moore
Dosbarth Pembrey - class teacher Mrs Paynter.
We have Learning Support Assistants who support the provision of our engaging Foundation Phase setting. Miss Bricknell, supports the enhanced provision for all classes, Mrs Gidney develops skills through music, Miss Radford is our ICT support assistant, Mrs Robins develops reading skills within the year group and Mrs Taylor delivers interventions for extra support to pupils.
Year one has a balance of focused learning and free flow activities, children are given a group name so they know when it is their turn for focused learning, ICT, music or Amser Talent.
Paws, claws and whiskers
Every day children are provided with milk and a variety of healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables. In order to continue with this, we ask for a contribution of £1 per week, this can be paid to the class teacher on a weekly basis, or paid up front for the term.
Homework is sent on a weekly basis from class teachers, which includes both literacy and numeracy, it is sent home on a Friday and is to be returned by the following week, we encourage parents/guardians to assist children with their homework so you are aware of the skills they are developing. Reading homework is often sent home by Mrs Robins to encourage the recognition of key words, sounds and general reading skills. Book bags are changed most days, so children can take home a new book each day to read with parents/guardians. Book bags can be purchased from the main reception.
P.E and I.C.T
Every Wednesday, all classes in Year one take turns to access the ICT suite, physical development and wellbeing activities. Children need to bring appropriate PE clothing every Wednesday with suitable footwear in order to take part in both indoor and outdoor physical activities. School PE kits can be purchased from the main reception.
Please keep an eye out on the notice boards when collecting children at the end of the day as this will keep you informed of any themed days, trips or special dates you need to put in your diary.
Class teachers are available at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day once children have been dismissed if you need to discuss anything, or alternatively you can make an appointment for a convenient time.
