Welcome to Class 1
Welcome to Class 1! Our teacher is Miss Young and we are supported by Mrs Bewick and Miss Nicholson. We are taught on a Thursday afternoon by Mrs Wilkinson.
Class 1 at Collierley Primary School is a seamless transition for the children who have accessed our fantastic EYFS provision. We aim to build upon the learning environment, experiences and skills children have had in reception, whilst supporting them to emotionally acclimatise to Year 1. During this year, the children will begin to take ownership over their learning and take on a range of different opportunities during child-led learning (continuous provision) to develop their independence, resilience and self-motivation. We will support all pupils through this inclusive curriculum while accessing high quality environments indoors and outdoors.
Phonics is a big part of Class 1. The children will further develop their phonics skills through a daily 20 minute session on a morning, These are fun sessions which involve games and tasks. They will learn tricky words, spelling rules and how to sound out and blend to aid them with their reading and writing. They will be encouraged to ‘have a go’ at spelling when writing independently, by sounding out words. This is all in preparation for the National Phonics Screening Test which takes place in Summer term.
We will start this term by looking at how transport has changed through time. We will be exploring how and why transport was made – we will even become mechanics and engineers where we will design and build our own vehicle!
PE is on a Tuesday afternoon.
Our ultimate aim is to raise standards and outcomes for all of our children
