Year 1 Mrs Shaw

Welcome to class 4


During the summer term class 4's morning will start with a phonics session. This will be followed with English. After assembly and break there will be a maths lesson. Mrs Giles is our classroom assistant. In the afternoon there will be coverage of foundation subjects and story. There is an emphasis on basic skills, to enable pupil's greater access to the whole curriculum  and the world beyond. . PE will usually be on a Thursday so please remove your child's earrings or send in plasters. PE days can change if the hall is in use so PE kits are to be left in school. Please encourage your child to read every night and to return their book back to school everyday.

Our class assembly will be a celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday.
