Year 1 Elm 2018 - 2019
Assistant Head Teacher
Welcome to Elm Class
Mrs Allmand and the Year 1 team welcome you to Elm Class. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead. It is a big step from EYFS to Year 1 and we aim to make it an enjoyable, smooth one for your child and you.
The Year 1 Team
Mrs Allmand will teach Monday to Thursday and Mr Perry teaches on Friday (when Mrs Allmand has management time)
Mrs Foulkes is our class Teaching Assistant in the mornings. Other teaching assistants also work in class on a specialist basis.
We will have PE on Wednesday and Thursday.
Wednesday is an outdoor session, your child may bring in leggings, tracksuit bottoms or jogging bottoms for this session if they wish. They can put their school sweatshirt ontop.
Thursday is indoor so t-shirt, shorts and pumps are needed.This session is taught by a VARA sports coach.
Please ensure ALL items of clothing that come off/on are named. They all look the same and to a 5 or 6 year old it is important that they know which is theirs.
Autumn 1- This half term we are settling into the new routine.Getting to know a new area of the school and the rules and expectations of Year 1. We move from the Foundation Stage Curriculum onto the National Curriculum.
English- we are starting the topic with the story ' Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell. We will learn about owls and start work on character, setting and story writing
Maths- This year we have changed our school maths scheme to the White Rose scheme. It has lots of opportunities for problem solving, arithmetic and basic skills. Through the day we also have lots of mental maths opportunities.
Topic - We will learn about our 'School and our environment' focusing on areas familiar to the children.
I will hope to put photos on the website to show you what we have been doing. I can only add photos of your child if you have given consent. Please check with the office that we have your preference correct. A letter was sent out late last term. This will include class photos, Christmas Production, trips and general day to day school activities.
Events - 'Meet the Teacher' Monday 10th September 3:30pm
Come along and say hello. Find out about the year ahead, class routine, change in the curriculum and expectations. Ask questions and meet the other parents.If you can't attend and have any queries please don't hesitate to see me after school, via email or a note.
We look forward to getting to know you and your child over the year.
