Welcome to the Ada Lovelace class!
This year we have named our classes based on inspirational people from around the world and throughout history.
My name is Miss Watsham and I am thrilled to be the Year 1 class teacher. We are very lucky and have two teaching assistants this year, Mrs Westmore and Miss Burley.
Our topics this year are:
I love to build a relationship with all children and their families and enjoy having that link, so please feel free to contact me whenever you need to and I will always do my best to help however I can. Use the email below:
I can't wait to have an amazing year together!
Our topic for the first half of Summer Term is 'Moor to Coast'. This is going to be a fantastic learning opportunity for children and we are going to find out so much knowledge and information about places local to us and further afield. We will be looking at moorland and the coast in detail, identifying human and physical features and discussing similarities and differences between each of these places. We will also be comparing them both to the place that we live in.
We are hoping to visit a local beach during the second half of the Summer Term and children will be able to apply this learning.
Due to restrictions with COVID-19, we are trying to keep home learning as virtual and contained as possible. We will be sending spelling lists home, which do not need to come back into school. Any other work that we do send hime, we will not expect to come back into school again to limit the contact between home and school.
So, below you will find some very useful documents.
1. Spelling lists for Year 1. Children need to know and work hard on these spellings dependent on their ability.
2. Times Tables. I have attached a document that has all times tables that children in class need to know and practise.
3. Reading - I have attached some reading guidance on types of questions and conversations that would be really helpful for you to do with your child at home. The more they read, the better they are at reading!
