Welcome to Demeter


Welcome to Demeter Class!

In Demeter we strive to create an atmosphere of independence and encourage the children to take responsibility for their learning, in preparation for the rest of their school journey.

Miss Gilbert is the class teacher supported by Mrs Hay, as the class Learning Support Assistant. Additional support for spellings and phonics is provided by Mrs Evans on a Wednesday afternoon. Mr Muggleton, a Pacesetters coach, teaches one of the P.E sessions and the children will also meet Mrs Nunn once a week when she supports the class with extra reading sessions.

Our P.E. sessions are each Wednesday and Friday.  Outdoor P.E is encouraged so please ensure that children have suitable footwear and clothing, all clearly named. Girls will need a pair of socks for those days when they are wearing tights.

Spellings are given out and tested every Wednesday afternoon. They link with the phonic sounds we have learnt previously, and common exception words that the children need to be familiar with. Please support us and your child by looking at these and practising them daily.

Guided reading sessions are on Friday and all books are changed every Friday. However, it is important to keep the reading books in their book bags every day for any additional reading lessons. Regular reading at home is hugely beneficial and will help support learning in all areas of the curriculum.

We hope that the children have a wonderful time in year one and continue to develop their amazing enquiry skills. Remember Demeter – Stay Curious!
