To class y1/2
Meet your teachers
My name is Mrs Breedon and I am so excited to meet you all. This will be my very first year teaching at Sandhill but I have been a teacher (just down the road at Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School) for the past 15 years. I will be teaching you on Monday and Friday so will help you to learn and grow at the start and the end of the week. I have two children; a little girl called Rose, who is 4 and a little boy called Ted, who is 2. I love spending my spare time adventuring with the children in the woods, in the park and anywhere else we can think of! We have a pet cat at home called Bob. When I get a little bit of time to myself, I love to go to the theatre, go to the gym or read a book. I also love travelling to new places and learning all about them.
Our classroom will be located in the KS1 building and children will enter and leave through the main door at the front of this. In a morning children will need to line up on the playground and will be collected by their teacher.
To help you with your learning, we will send home weekly tasks for you to complete to earn dojos. There are also lots of other ways that you can earn dojos by following the ‘Sandhill Way’. As you achieve the target points on the dojo chart you will receive your reward.
We will have PE twice a week and on these days you will either need to bring plasters to cover your earrings or leave your earrings at home. We will send updates about what we are learning through our class dojo so please check regularly.
Areas of Learning
In Year 1/2 the children will continue to develop and learn in the Key Stage 1 curriculum, developing further skills and knowledge to become more independent and resilient. We will focus on early reading and phonic skills and would really appreciate if you could support this at home too.
In geography we will begin by studying the area local to school and then investigating the Arctic and finally, the British seaside!
In Science, we will be learning how to be scientists and develop our enquiry skills by observing carefully, measuring and asking questions about things that interest us. We will learn all about plants and animals in their habitats, the earth and space and about the human body.
You will also get to spend time with the WPT sports coaches who will teach you lots of different skills in PE.
In computing you will begin to learn how to write basic codes and how to keep safe when using the internet. There will so much more to enjoy learning alongside these subjects, as well as getting really confident in reading, writing and maths. We can’t wait to start your learning journey with you.
