St George's CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1, Mrs Potter is the teacher and Miss Brannan is the teaching assistant.

PE is on a Monday and a Wednesday so please make sure your child has both indoor and outdoor PE kits in school. Children will come home in their PE kit on a Wednesday after they have had Premier Sport. Please ensure they are back in school on Monday so that they can take part in their PE lesson. Also, please ensure your child has a water bottle in school everyday.

For at least the first half term in Year 1, children will be accessing Continuous Provision which refers to the resources and areas laid out in the classroom to provoke learning through play and exploration. During Continuous Provision, an adult (teacher or TA) enters into the areas to work alongside the children and further their learning. The children learn through lots of adult interaction and role play with their peers. The children are encouraged and taught to develop transferable skills. For example, they might use their writing skills in the construction area to write a sentence about their creation or they might use their maths skills in the writing area to count how many pieces of paper and pencils they need for the amount of children in the area. Alongside this, children will also be called to work in a group guided by an adult to work on specific learning (e.g writing, reading, maths, topic work).

In the event of a school closure or a local lockdown, please follow this link https://stgeorges.sites.schooljotter2.com/classes/home-learning to our home learning page which has some useful links to some websites.
