Miss Oldale

 

Hello from Year 1!

Welcome to our class page!

Year 1 is an important year for your child. It is the point when children transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to the Key Stage 1 curriculum. Although the way children learn in EYFS is continued, it becomes more structured. We aim to make sure children's learning is engaing, interesting and fun to foster a love for learning. The children will continue to develop their phonetic skills to help both their reading and writing. Children will have a daily phonics lesson and we follow Supersonic Phonic Friends.  

It is vital that your child tries their best and has a positive attitude towards school if they are to achieve their potential. Close links to home is essential to providing the best learning and support for your child! With close links to home we are able to ensure that every child is happy and gets the most out of their learning. Supporting your child at home with their homework and regular reading aloud can have a huge impact and will help your child to develop a positive attitude towards their learning. If you are ever unsure of anything, please don’t hesitate to call or email to discuss your concerns and queries. I’m always happy to help!

Keep an eye on our class page for the latest news, information, blogs and photos! 

 

Rewards

Every Friday, we have a celebration assembly where we are able to celebrate the various achievements of children throughout school. Each week, 2 children are chosen as 'Learners of the Week' and recieve a special certificate and a mention in the weekly newsletter. We also choose 1 'Reader of the Week' who has stood out for the effort in reading either in school or at home that week - they also receive a special certificate and a mention in the newsletter.

Across school we use the Class Dojo system for rewarding children. Children may receive Dojo Points for their work, manners, being a good friend and a host of other great things. Make sure you sign up for the Class Dojo App so you can see how your child is doing! Dojo Points are added together and allow children to work towards the Planet Awards! Each planet in the solar system represents a total of Dojo Points beginning with 100 Dojo Points for Mercury, 250 Dojo Points for Venus, 450 Dojo Points for Earth etc...
