Ivy Class 


Welcome to Ivy Class. 

Ivy Class is a Year 1 class.  Our teacher is Miss Schofield and our teaching assistants are Miss Watson in the mornings and Mrs Burkitt in the afternoons.


 Welcome to Ivy Class webpage! Enjoy exploring all the learning your children are up to! 

 This week in numeracy we will be learning about capacity. We will be planning and completing our own investigation to find out which containers have the largest capacity. We will also be comparing the capacity of different containers and will be solving problems.
In Literacy, we will be reading the story 'Dear Daddy...' We will be learning about letters. We will be learning about question marks and how to write a question and we will be having a class debate to explore different types of language and when we can use them.
For phonics we follow the Read, Write, Inc programme in school. If you would like to further support your child with their phonics at home then there are some links below of phonics games and activities you can complete with your child. If you have any concerns about your childs' phonics then feel free to come in and speak to me.
(click on the link for free phonics play where there is advice for parents and games for your children to play).
(this site has a missing letter game but also has online books for your children to read that has a feature for it to be read to them as well). 
(this website has lots of games for children that are still learnig how to read and write their initial sounds). 
 Our P.E. days are currently Tuesday and Friday.
All reading records are checked every day, please make sure your child's reading record is in school every day. As soon as your child has read their book they can change their book first thing in the morning. If you have any concerns about your child's reading, feel free to come and speak to me.
