Welcome to Chaffinches
|Miss Walters||Mrs Lambshead||Mrs Wakeham|
Chaffinch are a friendly class who love to be challenged with our learning. As the oldest children in Key Stage 1, we try our best to set a good example to the younger learners in the school.
In Chaffinch class, we have two class teachers:
Miss Walters: Monday, Thursday and Friday
Mrs Lambshead: Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mrs Wakeham is the learning support assistant in Chaffinch class each morning and Mrs Clarke also works with the children in Year 2 daily.
“I have been teaching at Bradley Barton for the past five years. I am learning about how to use different forms of ICT, particularly Ipads, to enhance children’s learning”. Miss Walters
"I have been teaching at Bradley Barton for the last 9 years. I am especially interested in reading and how we learn to read. My favourite thing to do is curl up and read a good book!" Mrs Lambshead
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:
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. As the children did not complete the phonics screening in Year 1 due to the school closure, they will be completing the screening in the second half of the autumn term.
In May 2021, Year 2 will take part in the statutory assessments for the end of Key Stage 1. These assessments are based on all the learning the children have done during KS1 and the children will be prepared in school. Parents and carers will receive further information about the assessments nearer to the time. If you have any queries about the assessments, please do get in contact with either class teacher.
We 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.
