Welcome to Early Years & Year 1's class page
 
Our teacher is Mrs Seymour and our Teaching Assistants are Ms Rowland and Mr Gatrell
 
P.E is every Wednesday afternoonThe children should arrive at school in their P.E kit on this day. They need to wear jogging bottoms or leggings (plain is preferable), their green P.E t-shirt, their school jumper and sports trainers or plimsolls. Children who do not bring their kit will have to sit out of the P.E session as we are unable to lend any kit. 
 
Bury Rangers is every Monday afternoon. Please make sure the children arrive at school in their Bury Rangers clothing. This must be suitable shoes such as wellies or walking boots, long trousers (no jeans please as these take too long to dry), a long sleeved top, a jumper and a waterproof coat. Waterproof trousers are also recommended. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide any waterproof clothing for these sessions due to Covid-19.
 
Music is every Thursday afternoon with Mr Mott.
  
The children have a yellow reading record where their reading must be logged everyday. This can be logged with a comment or just a signature. Dojos will be rewarded for children who read at home regularly.
 
Class Dojo is a reward system we use alongside another behaviour system called Good to be Green. Class dojo is an online platform where parents can be involved and notified when their child has received a dojo for something positive in school, and what they have achieved it for. Please let me know if you need any help accessing this. 
 
Good to be Green is a behaviour system in which all children begin each day with a green card. The children are given a verbal warning about their behaviour if appropriate. If they continue to disrupt or break a school rule, they will be given a yellow card. The consequence of this is that they must spend part of their next play time reflecting on their choices either verbally or written. If a behaviour continues, the child will be given a red card. This means they will be asked to see Mr Moore and a phone call will be made home.
