Year 1 - Mrs Cranshaw / Mrs Wilson

Our Year 1 class is taught by Mrs Cranshaw on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and by Mrs Wilson on Thursday and Friday.

Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to the Year 1 where we will be sharing information and communicating with you about our learning in class. Our page will also include reminders, for example, trip dates and important events as well as celebrating some of the lovely things the children do at Lindow.

Click on the links below to find out more about Year 1

We also have our own class dojo page where children are given dojo points for working hard, good teamwork, perseverance etc. We can post messages to the closed parent group on this which is great for keeping in contact and sharing current learning and photo's

Additional Information
Alongside the 2 teachers in Year 1 we also have our lovely teaching assistant Miss Margeson every morning. We also have a few different adults who are there to support 1:1 children in year1.

Dates for your diary:
See our Calendar page for current information and useful dates such as parents evening etc.

Year 1 Information

The children will continue have a concentrated 20 minute phase 5 ‘phonics’ every morning to maintain their skills in reading and spelling new words.

Each week, each child will read in a guided reading session with their teacher learning different strategies to help with reading; their books will be changed regularly across the week. Where possible children are also able to read individually to an adult to support and embed learning and development. Outside school it will help greatly if each child could read every night (for 5-10 minutes) and have a comment written in their reading diary. Also please can your child bring their reading books and diary every day and place them in the reading baskets in the classroom.

Children have weekly spellings to practise and again these are linked to the phonics they are learning and tricky words we work through across the year.

Maths is taught through a variety of practical and activities and the children are taught how to record their ideas and methods using different techniques. The are encouraged to explain their thoughts and develop their reasoning behind their answers or solutions  to help develop skills using different mathematical strategies they have been taught in class. Children can access Mymaths website with specific tasks to be completed a home to reinforce learning at school.

We are timetabled to have PE every Monday afternoon and Friday but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day as plans may change!
