Sharks

Sharks is our Year 1. Miss Kidger is the class teacher, supported by Teaching Assistants Miss Hanif and Mrs Heywood.  

The morning session starts at  8.50am until 12.00pm and the afternoon session starts at  1.00pm and finishes at  3.15pm. 

In a morning, the children are taught the core subjects of English and Maths. During these sessions, the children can work either as a whole class, in small groups, or 1-1 with an adult. 

During the afternoon session, the children undertake topic related work which covers subjects such as history, geography, science, PE, music and art. These topics change either on a half-termly or termly basis. 

PE sessions take place  on Tuesday and  Thursday. All children need to bring a PE kit including pumps or trainers on these days. Children will change their home reading books in the morning at 8.50 and complete their reading diary at home. 

Homework is given out on Fridays and should be completed and returned by the following  Tuesday. If it is returned late, it might not be marked. Homework includes a list of spellings to be learnt and either an English or Maths activity. Children are expected to read at home each evening and should return their home reading diary on a regular basis so that it can be monitored by the class teacher. 

The children in Sharks class have regular educational visits which may vary according to the topic being studied. All KS1 children go to pantomime each year and have a summer trip at the end of the year.
