Welcome to Year 1!
Classroom Staff – Miss Batsford will be teaching Year 1 Ascott and Mrs Chesworth will be teaching Year 1 Witney. As many of you are aware, both teachers must take 1 day per fortnight to carry out planning, preparation and assessment of learning. Miss Batsford will be out every other Friday and Mrs Chesworth will be out every Friday to accommodate her NQT time. Y1 Ascott will be taught by Mrs Winchcombe and Y1 Witney will be taught by Mrs Dyer on these days.
Teaching Assistants – Our Teaching Assistants throughout this year will be Miss Powell and Miss Hargreaves. They will be working alongside the Year 1 teachers to support the children with their learning. Miss Powell will be working Monday to Thursday and Miss Hargreaves Monday to Friday.
Parent Helpers – If you are interested in helping out in class please let your child’s teacher know. We are always grateful for any additional time and support you can give. Activities you may be involved in include hearing individuals or groups of children read and supporting children on a 1:1 basis.
