Welcome to Blackbirds!
The Blackbirds are a group of motivated learners, who always love singing, dancing and spending time in the woods. We enjoy to learn actively and creatively!
Blackbirds Class Teacher
Hello, My name is Miss Lawton and I have been at Bradley Barton for 2 years and I am delighted to be the Year 1 Teacher this year! My favourite subject is Mathematics and I am passionate about children learning mathematics in a practical and enjoyable way. I was very pleased to become part of the Maths Team last year. I am currently learning more about child psychology and I am fascinated about how children learn!
Blackbirds Class Commitments
As a Class, we have set up our Class Commitments. These are behaviours we have agreed need to be shown to help everyone learn.
Our Commitments are...
Use listening ears and follow instructions
Take it in turns to speak
Use walking feet and inside voices in the school
Have kind hands, kind feet and use kind words
Look after our classroom
Keep ourselves and our friends safe
The children have signed the class commitments to show that they will follow them.
Blackbirds Class Dojo
This year, all classes will be using Class Dojo. This will allow you to see dojo points that your child earns, which will also be translated into House Points, as well as notifying you about missing homework or PE kits. There is also a section where I will post any interesting things the class is doing and any reminders of special things that need to be brought in. There is also a messenger section where you can communicate with me directly should you wish to do so.
I will endeavour to get back to any queries on Class Dojo within 2 working days and will only check messages in working hours where possible (9am to 5pm). Please contact the school office if you have any urgent messages.
Year 1 Phonics Screening Check
The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England, and is usually taken in June. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. It will help to identify whether your child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill.
