Year 1 Oak Class


Welcome to  Year 1 2019-20. All of the classes at Courtney Primary are named after trees and we are Oak class.
 
People who work with us
Our teacher is Miss Inman
 
We have a number of teaching assistants working with us at different times: Mrs Ireland, Mrs Smith and Mrs Morch.
 
Mrs Murphy is our reading assistant in the afternoons. She also helps cook our school dinners.
 
 
Miss Inman has her PPA (preparation and assessment time) on Tuesday afternoons so we are taught by Mr Smith, who is our specialist sports coach, and Mrs Harbury, who will teach us The Arts and French.
 
 
 
We learn a lot in Year 1, but here are a few of our favourite things:
 
  • We learn lots of tricky words and phonics sounds to help us read exciting books and write fantastic stories.
 
  • We use Numicon to help us make number bonds - these are pairs of numbers that go together to make 10 or 20.
 
  • We talk to each other and learn about our families and our history. 
 
  • In Science we ask lots of questions and then carry out experiments to try and find answers!
