Welcome to Squirrels Class!
Welcome to Squirrels Class! My name is Miss Roberts and I am the class teacher for Squirrels Class. I hope you have all had a lovely summer and I look forward to hearing all about them in September. Although I am new to Harrietsham C of E school, you may know Mrs Keggans, our fabulous Learning Support Assistant who will be working with us throughout the year.
What will we be learning in Year 1?
In Squirrels class, we will be following the same scheme of work as our fellow Year 1 class; Hedgehogs.
We will be building upon the key skills taught in Reception, particularly elements of Mathematics and Literacy. We aim to ensure that the children are fully engaged in their learning by making lessons interactive and fun through a range of engaging topics.
In Squirrels class we love to see and hear children reading and encourage children to read as much as possible in and outside of their learning time to help broaden their vocabulary.
Children will be given weekly tasks and spellings to complete at home via Tapestry as well as a school reading book to read. We ask that reading journals and reading books are brought to school every day.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in September!
