Welcome to St Christopher!
We are a class of Year 1 children.
Our teacher is Miss Huxter
Our class teaching assistant is Mrs Toms.
We have recently adopted a new curriculum which is published by Cornerstones. English and all foundation subjects: History, Geography, Art, DT and Music are taught through our termly theme. Cornerstones will provide our children with a good level of challenge, giving them opportunities to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding across the full range of National Curriculum subjects.
Year 1 will experience 6 Imaginative Learning Projects in a year. Each individual project is split into sections, which see children progress through four stages of learning: Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. We are confident that our new curriculum will instill a curiosity and love of learning/school in our children. It will help them maintain their well-being and provide opportunities for each of them to achieve their full potential.
Our theme for Term 1 is 'Splendid Skies' and is all about the weather and the seasons!
PE day is on Thursdays.
Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit in school on this day.
We will be outside so please ensure your children have suitable clothing.
Children may need jogging bottoms if we are outside as the weather changes. Children must be able to take out their ear rings before the lesson and are responsible for looking after these. If your child is unable to remove their ear rings, they must come to school with tape on their ears or you can show your child how to apply the tape themselves before the lesson.
Due to current restrictions, homework is not being sent home with the children. Children are still expected to read every night. It would be great if you could practice doubling and halving numbers too! Children will have a daily spelling test in their RWI group and there is a list below of the common exception words which children are expected to be able to read and spell by the end of Year 1.
Please remember to look at your Knowledge Organisers each night at home and quiz your child on the different interesting facts on both sides! The information on these sheets should be easily recalled by the children once the topic is completed.
Children may also wish to extend their learning beyond the knowledge organiser if they have a specific interest in the topic.
Please use the knowledge organiser as a starting point for any extra study.
St Christopher class are expected to follow the school’s Golden Rules at all times and are encouraged and rewarded for being ‘green to go’.
The Golden Rules are:
- We respect and follow our school values.
- We work hard to achieve and shine brightly.
- We listen carefully and follow instructions.
- We are kind, gentle. inclusive and supportive.
- We look after property.
- We are safe and honest so everyone can enjoy school.
If, after a reminder, a child continues to break a rule, their name will be moved on our class traffic lights. Each colour (yellow, orange and red) has a number of possible consequences, such as loss of play time. If a child has to move their name, they given the opportunity to earn their way back to green by sticking to the golden rules and showing “green to go” behaviour.
Rewards and Prizes
The children are rewarded in class by winning raffle tickets. Then, at the end of the day if their raffle ticket is pulled out of the bowl they get to choose an item out of the class prize box. Green to Go Star of the week, Maths Star of the week and Literacy Star of the week are nominated and rewarded during class praise assembly on a Friday morning.
