Welcome to year 1 Fox Class
My name is Mrs Whitlock and I am the class teacher for Year 1. Mrs Barnard is the TA for our class.
Every day we complete a range of tasks in both adult led groups and through hands on child initiated learning. We encourage high standards of behaviour in the class and award merits for children praising both their effort in their learning and their attitude towards following the school code.
PE days for our class are on a Monday and Thursday afternoons. Please can the children arrive dressed in their school PE kits on those days. Due to current conditions all PE lessons will be outside so if it is cold please can they wear jogging bottoms and a jumper or fleece.
Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday. Please try and hear your child read as much as possible. We encourage children at this stage to read their school books a number of times to increase fluency and speed. Lots of children are in the early stages developing their reading so little and often is a key approach to have. Even 10 minutes every day can make a huge difference to their progress in reading.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me and I will assist you as much as I can
