St.Stephen's School

Class 1JR

Welcome to 1JR!

We are a kind, enthusiastic and hardworking class and cannot wait to take on the exciting adventure of Year 1. Our teacher is Jude and we are so lucky to also have the support of lots of different adults, especially Jash who is our senior support staff. If you want to visit us, we can be found in Room 4.

This year we will be working really hard with our phonics so that we can read some amazing stories. Please read with us every day at home, so that we can help both our imagination and vocabulary to grow! We will also be writing everything from stories and poems to instructions and fact files. This will mean we need to practise forming our letters beautifully and punctuating our sentences correctly!

Our maths lessons will help us develop our understanding of all the numbers to 100 and beyond. This will also help us grow in confidence when adding and taking away. A very important challenge for us this year will be learning our number bonds to 10 - so we will need to practise until we are number bond masters!

We will also be learning even more about the world around us in our History, Geography and Science lessons, as well as becoming experts in using computers and keeping fit and healthy in PE. This year we will be visiting the forest at Wanstead and going to see a panto at Christmas time at The Kenneth Moore Theatre. We will also be hosting a fun, creative workshop which you will not want to miss!
