Mrs Weaving



Welcome to our new school year!


Thank you for looking at our class page.  We will endeavour to keep it up to date with news from 1DW's classroom. Please do ask if you have any questions.  Mrs Weaving is the class teacher and our teaching assistant every morning is Mrs Bone. Mrs Abeyrathne will be with us for part of Friday mornings. 


General Information

Water bottles

Please send a filled water bottle with your child every day.  Please may we ask that they contain plain water only.  We will refill them with water as needed during the day and send them home with your child to be washed and refilled.



All the children will be given a reading scheme book.  We usually change our reading scheme books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please sign your child's book when you have heard them read at home so that we can clearly see when they are ready to change their book.  We ask that children read at least three times a week and that children's reading books and planners are in school every day.



We will be giving out Maths and English homework each week.  Homework will be given out on a Fridays for collection on Wednesdays.  The homework usually follows on from work we have been completing in class.



The children will have spellings to learn each week.  These are given out on Mondays to be collected in on Friday mornings ready for their test.  Please encourage your child to use the words they are learning in a sentence.  


Our belongings

It is helpful if your child's belongings are named, including their water bottles and coats.  We do try to ensure your child returns home with all their belongings and your help with this is much appreciated.



 All children are to come dressed in their PE kits on Tuesdays.


We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning with our enthusiastic class of Year 1  children.  If you do have any questions, please do ask.




Mrs Leeson and Mrs Ruddock were planning to hold a reading workshop to help parents and carers in supporting their child in developing their reading skills. Unfortunately, owing to current circumstances, they were unable to hold the workshop. We have attached the slides below and if you require any further help/support please contact your child’s class teacher.
