Welcome to Year 1!

Teacher: Miss Bryan



In Year 1, we use 'ClassDojo', the children will gain dojo points for their positive behaviour. If you get 30 dojo points in a week, you can choose a prize out of the treasure chest. Dojo points will be given out for good effort in class, making good choices, helping others and there may even be a chance to take part in an unlucky lucky dip!


๐ŸŒŸSteps to Success๐ŸŒŸ

We are continuing with our behaviour system in class where children aim to reach the 'Sky is the limit' zone to show outstanding behaviour or maintain their good behaviour in the 'Green for Growth' zone. 


๐ŸŒŸHomework and Reading๐ŸŒŸ

Homework will be sent home each Friday and should be returned the following Friday. Homework will accessible for your children and they will usually have prior knowledge to help them in completing it. Reading books will also be changed and sent home on a Friday, please do not forget to comment in reading records. A log is kept for those who return homework and reading books weekly and children who are consistent with this will be rewarded at the end of each half term.
