Key Stage 1

Welcome to KS1

Classes

In KS1, we have 3  classes:

Team Tiger  (Year 1)

Mrs Taylor

Team Civet (Year 1/2)

Mr Baker

Team Genet (Year 2)

Miss Dodd

We are also supported by Miss Lincoln and Miss Bates (HLTAs)

Homework

Children will bring spellings home each Monday.  They should try to learn them using the “Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check” method.  There is space on the back for practicing new vocabulary in sentences.

Reading

We encourage children to read as much as possible at home.  Little and often is best.  We also encourage children to re-read books once finished to aid in developing fluency.  You can support your child by discussing what they have read, making predictions and using inference.

There are a huge number of quality stories and activities available on Bug Club.

Start/End of the day

Doors open at 8:50.  Children can come straight in to class to get on with morning activities.  Please encourage your child to be independent once they have got to grips with the routine – the corridor gets very busy!  The school day finishes at 3:25 for KS1.  Children can be collected from the playground doors.

Money

The Tuck Shop runs at break times on Mon, Wed and Thurs.  No more than 30p a day will be needed.  Money will be collected in by teachers in the morning and kept safe until needed.

PE

We advise children to leave their PE kit in their locker for the week and take it home when it is ready for washing.  Children will need warmer clothes for outdoor PE in the colder weather.
