Skylarks – Year 1

A very warm welcome to our new Skylark Parents,

It really has been a warm welcome to our new class this week, very very warm. The children have astounded us with their confidence and happiness. They seem so ready to embrace life as a Skylark! From next week I will be on the playground every Monday and Wednesday morning. Their will be other key stage 1 staff in the playground every morning and the children already seem confident with their new arriving at school routine. Mrs Groth will be the Skylark teacher on a Friday and we will work closely together with Mrs Jenkins to form your Skylark teaching team. I will be sending home reading books on Friday but may I ask that the books remain in the children's book bags each day so we can hear them at school too. As well as the reading books, their will be a reading/spelling review sheet each week and the children can help themselves to any book from the book exchange on the key stage 2 playground. Keep practising the foxy phonics words I sent home today and we will keep a check on these in school too. Alongside the phonics, these sight recognition words really aid reading fluency.

I have popped below some maths key facts for you to practise with your child at home. We will practise them in school too. The aim here is for fluency and speed in saying the answers.

We will spend the next couple of weeks revising work from Robins and establishing new rules and routines. I am really looking forward to getting to know your child and working together this year. Please feel free to ask any member of the Skylark team anything you need to. Appointments can be made via the school office or you can catch us on the playground before or after school. 

Looking forward to working with you all

Best Wishes
