Welcome to Finch Class
In Year One, we have lots of fun learning together. Our class teachers are Mrs Thomas (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Clarke (Thursday-Friday). We are supported by Miss Hawkins. We are a very friendly team and will be happy to help you and your child in any way that we can.
We teach phonics as a discrete lesson to help the children become secure with the letter names and sounds, enabling them to progress with their reading and spelling. For this, we use the scheme a scheme called bug club. Your child will have their own log in details so that you can access e-books and phonics games at home. Please read the following information booklet for more details and advice on how you can help them at home too.
