Welcome to 1CJ! Our class teacher is
Mrs Carpen-Juckes and our learning support assistant is Ms Caine. Ms Gold also covers our RE and PSHE lessons on a Tuesday.
In 1CJ we ask questions, share ideas, have fun and work as a team. We know that mistakes help us to learn and we aren’t afraid to ‘have a go’ because our teachers support us to have a growth mindsets. Above all, in our class we are expected to be kind and respectful to ourselves and others.
Things to know

Forest school with Miss Smith
Please ensure that your child brings a coat in on this day and that they have their wellington boots in school. Ideally the wellington boots should stay in school.
Friday- Homework & Spellings are also given out on a Friday.
Book bags are sent home with a new book. Please make sure that you leave a comment and sign your child's reading journal.
Reading in 1CJ
Reading is really important to us in 1CJ. Each day we vote for the book we would like to be read at story-time.
Please read at home with your child as much as possible, this can be by reading a story out loud or your child can read out loud to you from their home reading book. Sharing stories can include comic books, magazines, picture books or even a chapter book. We actively encourage reading for pleasure! We do ask that you aim to listen to your at least three times a week but of course the more you can read with your child the better.
Book bags should be brought to school daily and are updated weekly. Please sign your child's home reading journal.
Online Learning & Homework
Each child has individual logins for the following websites.
Bug Club – children can listen and read stories at their individual level on an iPad/tablet or computer. Books are updated regularly. Children can also practice answering questions about what they have read.
Numbots will help your child practice their Maths skills in a fun way. Certificates are given each week for most coins earned, most improved and most hours played!
