A warm welcome to the Owls Class :) We are a Year One class.
Every morning we have Read, Write, Inc sessions. Read, Write, Inc is a phonics programme, designed to introduce the skills of reading and writing from initial sounds right through to comprehension and extended writing activities. We also have Mathematics every morning and we follow the 'Inspire Maths' scheme each day, we also use Numicon as a resource for teaching and learning number skills in Year One.
Our teachers make sure that the work we do is appropriate to our abilities as well as making sure it is challenging and helps us gain new skills and understanding on a daily basis.
