Oak Class - Year 1

 We are a job share, Mrs Harder teaches the class on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Pinder teaches on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Coupe who works Monday-Friday. 

We are so glad you are visiting our class page to find out more about our lovely Year 1 class. Here you will find our termly topic web which outlines all of the fantastic learning and experiences we will be having together this term.

There is also phonics and spellings that our Year 1's could try to practise as much as possible. 

 PE days are Wednesday and Friday. We kindly ask that all kit is named and their PE kits remain in school.


 If you have a query or concern, please talk to us at school pick up and drop off. You can also get in touch via the school office by emailing messages@loxwoodschool.com and one of us will get back to you via a phone call. We are always happy to answer any questions or support with any home learning.


We look forward to getting to know all our lovely families more over the coming year.


Best wishes, Mrs Harder and Mrs Pinder.

Our topic this term is called "Castles in the Sky". 

It is part of our whole school skills focus of “Discover”. We will learn about castles and homes from the past.


In maths, our area of learning is Number-Place Value. We have been busy counting this week. The children really enjoyed seeing how high they could count and used lots of different things to count! 



In English, we have been looking at phonics and revisiting all the sounds we know and discovering some new ones. We also, looked at words which have a double consonant in them. For example, ff, ll, ss and ss. The children did really well recognising pictures which showed words ending in these double consonants.

In ICT, we looked at how to keep safe online when using a tablet, ipad etc. We also, discussed what to do if we were ever worried about we might see online.


We will be practising writing in a cursive style.
We use the website "teach handwriting" to do this.
Please click on the link below if you would like to look at this.
We have also attached a document showing the cursive style we do. We hope it helps.
We will cover all the letters of the alphabet and then move on to working on letter joins.
This week we practised writing i and l.
Internet Safety 
Please find some important resources on internet safety below. It is really important to practice e-safety, and with an increase in internet activity during home learning, it would be useful to familiarise yourself with these resources.
