Welcome to Class 1W.
Our teacher is Miss Walker and our learning support assistants are Miss Spencer and Miss Pemberton.
We are lucky to also have Mrs Lewis supporting us a few days a week. We also have Miss Hall; a student teacher from Liverpool Hope University joining us until Christmas.
We always try our best and have lots fun while we learn in Year 1!
Upcoming Events this term
In our RE lessons we enjoy learning about Jesus and thinking of how we can live our lives the way he did. In 1W we share, care, love, respect and help everybody.
This term we have been learning about the topic of 'Families'. We enjoyed sharing our family photographs and talking about how they love us.
PE is on a Friday morning so please ensure your child has full kit including red t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps.
Your child will read each week with Miss Pemberton and their book will be changed whenever it is in school. It is important that you read with your child when they bring home a new book. Please check for any letters that may have been placed in their book bag.
Now that the children are in year 1 they will have a weekly spelling test on a Wednesday. They will bring home their spellings to practice the week before so please support your child with them. We encourage the children to 'do their best' and they are very excited to see how many they have spelled correctly each week.
Children can bring in a water (and only water) in a named bottle so if they get thirsty they have access to a drink throughout the day.
Our first half term in 1W has been exciting as we have been getting to know our new teachers, areas of the classroom and how we learn in year 1.
We have been learning about the different ways we can make numbers, used number lines and have even been practising how to spell numbers to 10!
In English we are looking at 'stories with familiar settings' and have really enjoyed reading 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea.' Our classroom was turned into a crime scene when an unknown person or creature messed up our room (it turns out it was the tiger thinking he could come for tea in St Christopher's!) We went around the school interviewing teachers to find clues.
Our topic has been 'Seasons' where we have been learning about how the weather and trees change throughout the year. We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite season.
