Larks Year 1

Mrs Bailey and Miss Hunt

Welcome to Larks class!


It was lovely to meet all our children on transition day and we are really looking forward to starting the new term ahead with all of your little ones. 

To start the term off we will spend the first week getting to know each other more and carrying on our learning from reception with the Julia Donaldson book Sharing a Shell. During the rest of the term, we will move onto looking at the story Everywhere Bear and learning about our school and Abingdon. We will make maps in Geography and learn about the artist Lowry in art. 



Our Larks team is Mrs Bailey on Mondays and Tuesdays and Miss Hunt on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  We also have two Teaching Assistants, Miss Isom and Mr Wilkes.


P.E. lessons are on Monday and Wednesdays. Please also ensure their uniform and PE kit is named as it is so much easier to locate and return clothing if it is labelled! Please ensure your child has a water bottle at school each day with water i


One of the most important parts of our learning is reading and phonics.  It is vital that children read at home too and all children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home with an adult. They should have their reading book and reading record in school every day so that they can be heard read at school on any day. On a Monday they will be checked to see that they have done their 5 Reads at home and they will then be a Star Reader and get a sticker for our class chart. Books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays.


Parents/carers please feel free to ask any questions or discuss any concerns you may have as they arise either in person or by messaging on class dojo.  If a longer discussion is needed, we can book a phone call for a suitable time before or after school. 


We look forward to a great year together.


Mrs Bailey and Miss Hunt
