Welcome to the Starfish Class
Welcome to the Year 1 Starfish Class! I am Miss Stowe and I am the class teacher. We also have Miss Heap working with us as our Teaching Assistant. We are going to have lots of fun this year learning new and exciting topics and we can't wait to watch the children progress and blossom with their learning in Year 1.
Please be patient with us this term, we are trying our very best to follow all the latest guidance whilst trying to make school life as normal, fun and as exciting as we can!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to come and see me.
As I am sure you are aware, reading is the key to opening many successful and exciting doors for your child.
Please listen to your child read for 10 minutes every night to help them progress with their reading.
We are currently unable to send home the reading record books for you to sign and make comments but you can post videos on Seesaw for me to see if you wish.
It would be amazing if you could count with your children on a daily basis. You could make it part of your morning routine whilst travelling to school or even whilst making breakfast!
We will be learning number bonds to 10 and 20 in year one and it would really benefit your child if you helped them to practise these at home.
We will also be learning our 2x, 5x and 10x tables throughout the year!
Both myself and Miss Heap are very excited to work with your children this year! So far, their enthusiasm, behaviour and attitude has been wonderful and we can not wait to watch them grow in their learning! They have adapted so well to the new normal in school and I am very proud of them!
Keep it up Starfish! You are AMAZING!
