We use Seesaw in the Starfish Class. We encourage the children to post their spellings, reading and number bond practise in exchange for dojo points! Please ask Miss Stowe if you need another QR code to log in.

Your child should also have a personal Purple Mash log in. You can access many games and activities for all subject areas on Purple Mash. Please ask Miss Stowe if you need another log in.
Hit the button is a fantastic game for the children to play to practise their number bonds and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
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 Mrs Brook-Smith 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.
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.
Please sign your child's reading diary when you listen to them read. Your child will have a reading day at school and we will check their reading record. We will also know if your child has finished their book at home if it is signed.
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 Mrs Brook-Smith 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!
