Welcome to the Starfish Class! The Starfish Teacher is Mrs Herbert and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Heap. Mrs Lewer teaches us on Wednesday mornings.
In Year 1 The Starfish and The Seahorse Classes work closely alongside each other, learning and playing together. Have a look on The Seahorses' Page for information about their staff etc.
Visit this page for termly updates about the different topics the children will be learning about. We will also add photographs of what the children have been up to in class and around school.
Each child has a set reading day but there may be other times when your child is asked to read so could you ensure that they bring their reading book to school every day.
In order for your child to progress with their reading they need to be reading every day. We recommend short periods of no longer than 10 minutes at a time. Please add a short comment in your child's reading record each time they have read with you.
Our P.E days are Monday and Tuesday each week.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days with all items clearly labelled. Please remember children must not wear earrings on PE days and long hair should be tied up.
Spellings will be sent home every Friday, for a test on the following Friday. Please encourage your child to practise these, through them sounding out the word using the sounds we have learnt that week, i.e. sh-i-p, b-oo-t.
