Welcome to Year 1 at Lee Brigg Infant and Nursery School.  My name is Miss Newsham and I am the teacher for Leopard Class.  Year 1 is a special year for the children as they move from Foundation Stage into Key Stage 1.  My aim is to make this a smooth transition as the children are provided with challenges to excite and stimulate.

Mrs Barrett supports the class in the mornings and works with smaller groups during the afternoons. We truly believe in working as a team and have the same high expectations for all children to believe in themselves as confident learners!

Other adults working in Year 1 is Mrs Brook our HLTA.

During the year exciting learning opportunities are planned into each term to ensure children are keen and excited to learn. Children are encouraged to progress to the very best of their ability and are supported to do so. We aim for confident children who enjoy learning and who leave Year 1 ready to move up to Year 2. We hope you will support your child on their very special journey into a wonderful world of finding out and learning new skills!

 Welcome to Year 1!

We are delighted to welcome you to Tiger Class and we are looking forward to supporting you and your children as they continue on their learning journey. My name is Mrs Taylor and I am the Tiger’s class teacher, working alongside me is Mrs Greaves.

As a staff we believe in nurturing independence, curiosity, self-belief and an excitement to learn amongst our children. Through carefully planned focused teaching and independent play opportunities, reflecting the different ways children develop and learn, we are committed to ensuring that all children are able to reach their full potential.

The children in reception have access to a rich indoor and outdoor environment through which they are challenged and encouraged to practice and develop their learning through their own independent play. We value the contribution of parents within the children’s learning and we offer opportunities throughout the year for parents and family members to come into school and share in their child's learning.

We follow the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) within our planning to ensure children experience a broad and balanced curriculum. We plan using a topic based approach which provides opportunity for pupils to develop the basic skills such as reading, writing, phonic recognition, number recognition and counting, and allows pupils to develop socially and emotionally as they form friendships and explore their feelings. Topics will be enhanced by the ideas and interests which pupils and staff bring to the learning environment.

Overall, we aim to ensure that your child’s experience during Reception is a positive, exciting and fulfilling one. It is important to us that all children feel valued, safe and encouraged.

Our classroom doors are always open! Please feel free to come and see us at the end of any school day.
