Our Key Stage 1 Aims
Our aim for the children in our Keys Stage 1 setting is for them to develop their confidence, their caring attitudes and continue to be respectful young people whose creativity and inquisitiveness is nurtured and enhanced through our Key Stage 1 Curriculum. We help our children to develop a love of learning by offering memorable learning experiences, a language rich environment and most importantly an enjoyable place to learn. Please enjoy our class to find out more!
Meet the team
Welcome to Class 3, our Year 1 class. Our teacher is Mrs Shiels. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Jackson and Miss Soulsby.
Our Class Charter
Our class promises are decided by the children in our class. They are the rules and values that they think are most important to help our class be the best it can.
We offer a range of different activities to help our Year 1 children grow and learn. Our children enjoy direct teaching of English, Maths and Foundation subject skills, as well as the opportunity to develop and extend their thinking and learning through enhanced continuous provision, where the children lead the own play. The challenges and play on offer are based around our half termly topics and book hooks, which are further complemented by activities inspired by the children’s interests.

We really value reading at South Stanley Infant and Nursery, and know the positive impact reading for pleasure has on your child’s future achievements. That is why we read the same ‘book hook’ each reading session for a full week. This helps the children to get to know these carefully chosen stories inside out! They learn the repeated refrains, new vocabulary, get excited when anticipating events in the story. It enables them to know the book well enough to talk about it with their friends and to use this story knowledge in their play, recreating and innovating new tales of their own!
These are the stories your child will enjoy in Class 3, Year 1.
Book bags and Homework
All of our children are provided with a book bag and reading record, which we ask parents to sign and comment in so we can see how the children are progressing at home.
We ask that ALL children bring their book bag to school every MONDAY. The children will be given a reading book and reading record linked to their phonics unit for the week. The children will also get the opportunity to choose a reading for pleasure book from our library to enjoy at home with family.
On THURSDAY we send home 1 piece of phonics homework and 1 piece of maths homework. These short activities will give a flavour of what we are working on in school, and provide an opportunity for children to consolidate their learning.
Our children enjoy a range of teacher led challenges and child led learning and play, and we think you’ll agree, they certainly are having fun!
