Welcome to Year 1!
A warm welcome to the Year 1 class page. We have a fun and exciting year ahead! The Year 1 staff are looking forward to working with both you and your children. Please remember if you have any questions then don't hesitate to contact us.
In Year 1 the class teacher is Mr Hoyle and the teaching assistant is Mrs Keeling
Reading books are changed every Monday. Please remember to complete your child's reading record to show whether you have read with your child at home. Library books are also changed every week.
Spelling and Multiplication Tests
Spellings will be sent home each week for your children to learn. They will then be tested on these every Thursday and the results will be sent home so you can see how they performed.
Our PE lessons are on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit and that all items are named.
KS1 Celebration Assembly
If your child has any medals or certificates that they have achieved from out-of-school activities, please send them in on a Wednesday so we can share them in our KS1 assembly.
Show and Tell
Every Friday afternoon we will have show and tell if your child has anything they would like to bring in to share with the rest of the class.
Droylsden Library class visit
Year 1 will be going for a walk to Droylsden Library in the next few weeks. We will be introduced to the librarian, Stephanie, who will read them a nice story and introduce them to the library and discuss how books can be loaned.
I will be sending home a form which can be completed and returned if your child has not got a Tameside Library card. We often visit the library through the year to encourage children to use this excellent community resource.
St Mary's welcomes you to the RSE evening tonight at 6pm. We will be talking about the changes to the curriculum for PSHE and showing you the expected content for this new curriculum. We will then take you to your child's classroom where the class teacher will show you examples of lessons and answer any questions that you may have.
We look forward to meeting with you this evening.
St Mary's has signed up to Tameside's Smoke-Free gates initiative. You will see signs at the front and rear school gates asking parents and visitors not to smoke on or around the school premises. There is also a policy on our school website with more information about this positive change to our school environment.
Thank you to Year 2 for their kind message at the end of our Wellbeing week!
My assembly was all about the five steps to wellbeing and how I myself used the steps to regain a little control during a stressful time. I am glad Year 2 found this interesting!
