Our class teacher is Mrs Crofts and our teaching assistant is Mrs Watson.
We hope to help every child make a smooth transition. As the children get more used to us the day becomes a little more formal, with greater emphasis on directed tasks rather than free choice activities. Later on the work will involve more writing, but support will be provided for those that need it. We aim to provide stimulating and enjoyable activities to challenge all the children.
We really enjoy learning in a practical, fun way.
As in the EYFS pupils in Year 1 will be given some learning activities to complete at home to help reinforce the work being covered in lessons and to provide the children with the opportunity to share and extend their learning with adults at home.
Children in Year 1 will be given the following activities:
We place a great emphasis on reading at St Laurence’s Primary School. Children will participate in guided reading sessions with an adult twice a week. It is very important that the children read every night. Reading record books should be signed by parents to indicate the page reached each evening and along with the reading book, should be brought into school every day. We encourage the children to use the school library and they have the option to bring home a library book on a weekly basis. Library books can be changed on a Monday. School reading books will changed on Mondays and Thursdays.
