Year 1 Oak Class

Welcome to  Year 1 2018-19. 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
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Radford (who is also our Lead Lunchbreak Supervisor).
Mrs Murphy is our reading assistant in the afternoons. She also helps cook our school dinners.
On Wednesday mornings, Mrs Parker teaches us Science and Mathematics.
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.
You may find us relaxing with a book in our comfy reading corner or exploring our topic through role play. 
When we are learning with Miss Inman we work in small groups at tables or on the carpet. 
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!
