Autumn Term 1- Little Me, Big World
Year 1 Long Term Plans
Welcome, to Year 1- Kensington. My name is Mrs Chambers and I have been teaching in Primary schools for the past 19 years. I believe that education has the power to transform minds and lives. I am very excited to join you and your child on this wonderful journey.
3 facts about me:
I was born on the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados.
I enjoy spending days by the sea with my family.
I love to travel and experiencing different cultures.
Our LSA’s this year is Mrs Squires and Mrs. Seaman.
Both Mrs. Squires and Mrs. Seaman are experienced L.S.A’s and are dedicated to providing personalised learning support. I am very excited to be working with them this year.
Our school life this year: PE – PE sessions will be every Monday and Wednesdays. The kit will be kept at school and sent home at the end of each half term or at your request (but please ensure that they are returned to school on time for these sessions). Earrings must be removed prior to the children coming into school. We are not allowed to help them remove earrings and they will be unable to do PE. Please ensure all uniforms are labelled with the child’s name, as alternative uniforms cannot be provided should theirs go missing.
Water bottles - Children should bring in their bottles every day to school and only the school bottle is permitted. Please make sure that these are well labelled with permanent markers or waterproof labels.
Reading books- Each week the children will bring home books to read at home. These will match their reading levels which were updated at the end of the last school year. Although your child may need support calling some words or reading with good expression or at a good pace, they should be able to read it independently. Reading books and diaries should be in school each day for daily reads at school.
Homework - On Friday, we will set a piece of homework which should be returned by the following Friday.
Uniforms - At Templars, we pride ourselves in our appearance and in Kensington, being smart, starts with looking smart. Children are required to wear full uniforms to school at all times. Please inform me or the school office if for any reason, it is not possible to do this and we will take this into consideration.
Communication – As we foster our new partnership as a class body, I aim to maintain open, amicable and respectful relationships. If you ever need to chat with me, I always see the children out at the end of the day, so I am available to speak then. Should you require an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact me on our school email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office, and I can call you back as soon as possible.
We all looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.
