Templefield Lower School Welcome to Year 1 Induction Evening 2014
Staff in Year 1 Giraffe class - Mrs Kemp Penguin class- Mrs Thompson and Mrs Freeman Support assistants in both classes
Transition from Foundation Stage Morning sessions will be slightly more formal than Foundation, with an emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. The learning in the afternoons in Year 1 will be very similar to the foundation stage. Throughout the week your child will work with the teacher in a small group on a focused learning activity. At other times of the day your child will be learning through activities that are independent and can be accessed at their own level, providing the correct level of challenge. These activities will be split into 7 areas:
Independent Activities Literacy Maths 2d/Art 3d/DT ICT Topic Small world/Role play
School Day School starts 9:00am (gate open from 8:40). Literacy, numeracy and daily phonics. Morning break 10:10 – 10:30am. Lunch time 12:00 – 1:10pm. Topic work/ Table activities. Afternoon break. School finishes 3:30.
International Primary Curriculum (IPC) At Templefield we broadly follow the IPC which is an exciting and stimulating, thematic based curriculum ideally suited to children of primary school age. At the same time we will ensure that we meet the requirements of the new national curriculum which begins in September. The topics we cover in Year 1 will include: Ourselves The Circus Clothes Toys Living Things Holidays
Visits and Enrichment Circus skills day. Multi skills/Sports day. Sports coaches. Class assemblies. Christmas Year 1 performance. Our school is also a ‘Values Based’ school covering a different value each half term.
Reward Systems We have a whole school assembly where we celebrate children’s achievements throughout the week. Each half term we hold a celebration assembly where two children from each class are recognised for their significant contributions to school life. Golden tickets are awarded to children who uphold the values of our school. Golden time is time when children are rewarded for their positive contributions throughout the school week and takes place on a Friday. Class sticker cards and rewards.
Personalised Learning at Templefield Each individual child’s needs are addressed through careful differentiation across the whole curriculum. We liaise closely with all our parents at all times and embrace an ‘open door’ policy where parents are free to speak to their child’s class teacher at the beginning and end of every day.
