Welcome to our Year 1 class page. Miss Sullivan is our class teacher and we have lots of other wonderful staff supporting our learning. Following careful transition from Reception class, children experience a range of learning opportunities in Year 1 and study the full National curriculum. Our day will include a Bug Club phonic session, a Maths lesson and an English lesson. These will gradually be more formal across the Autumn Term. In the afternoons, we will cover our other curriculum work through small guide groups and continuous provision.
Year 1 children will complete a Phonics Screening in June 2023. This is a government standardised assessment completed individually with the class teacher. We will be working very hard to decode real and ‘alien’ words in preparation.
At Beaumont, we believe in celebrating the success of our pupils at every suitable opportunity, from the smallest to the grandest achievement. We know that positive reinforcement is an important part of each pupil’s personal growth and it is something we are proud to facilitate.
The children are awarded Dojo points for good work and effort, good behaviour, achievement or by showing good manners to teachers and their peers. You will be given the opportunity to see these points build up instantly through the Dojo App. At 50 points marker, your child receives a GOLDEN sticker from the Headteacher
As teachers we are always thrilled when a child or group of children obtain a personal best, do something extraordinary or show great community spirit.
At Beaumont, we are keen to promote a lifelong love of reading and want to encourage the children in any way we can. We encourage our children to read widely and often; rewarding reading behaviours. This may be for recommending a book to a friend, sharing a book review, trying a different genre, increasing the amount of time spent reading or talking confidently about the books read. Children can receive certificates and badges which are presented in assemblies and take home the Reading Dog Basket which is a real treat!
