Year 1 (The Dreamweavers- Claire Freedman)

Miss Mayne

Miss A Mayne


Welcome to the Year 1 class page. I am Miss Mayne and it is so lovely to have brought my old Nursery class up to KS1!


In our class we are lucky enough to be supported by two wonderful TAs. Mrs Shadwell is our experienced TA, who will be working with us every morning during our maths learning and guided activities. She also teaches the class on a Monday afternoon, and runs interventions across KS1 in the other afternoons. Mrs Harris, another experienced TA, will also be with us in the mornings for our maths learning. Your child will be in a phonics group led by either Miss Mayne, Mrs Shadwell, Mrs Harris, or Mrs White (Year 2 TA).


Our Physical Education sessions will be taking place on a Thursday afternoon this term. Our PE sessions will be both indoors and outdoors, and will be taken by Miss Mayne. Please make sure that your child brings in their PE kit on a Monday morning with both their indoor and outdoor clothes, as we will never know if we will be inside or outside until the day. We do have other PE slots throughout the week, so it is always best to be prepared and to always have your PE kit in school – just in case!


Home learning, including spellings, will be sent home with your child every Friday and is due back in school on the following Wednesday. On Friday, the children will be tested on their weekly spellings. Please make sure your child practises both of these to ensure that they are improving each and every week. The children will also be tested daily on their number bonds and times tables.


Throughout the year we have a range of exciting topics that will help us to develop our understanding of the world around us. This term we will be starting a science-based topic: How does my Body Work? We will be learning about different parts of the body, with a main focus on our senses and how these help us explore the world around us.


If you are ever worried or have any questions feel free to see me before or after school. If I am not available, you could always talk to Mrs Shadwell or Mrs Harris, or book an appointment with the office. We are always available to support you and your child’s needs.


Miss Mayne, Mrs Shadwell, and Mrs Harris.
