Hello! My name is Miss Lamont and I am the teacher in our Year One Dolphins Class. In Dolphins, we also have our wonderful teaching assistant Miss Benjamin and on Fridays Mr White will be teaching.
At Hillside, we LOVE to read and believe that reading is the key to unlocking so many amazing learning opportunities. I have so many amazing books that I will be sharing with you all throughout the year.
In the morning, children are taught Phonics, English and Maths. During these sessions, children will work either as a whole class, in small groups, with a partner or 1-1 with an adult.
In the afternoon session, we have our second Phonics lesson and Guided Reading. We also explore more topic related work which covers subjects such as: History, Geography, Science, Art, DT and Music. Our topics change every term. We also have our weekly Computing, PSHE and PE sessions.
Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. So please send your child to school in their full PE kit on these days. Please also remember that long hair needs to be tied back, no earrings and a plain PE needs to be worn.
Homework is given out every week on Friday. This will be given via Seesaw and will include a weekly reading record, a maths/ topic related task and spellings. Your child will also receive a paper copy of their weekly spellings in their homework books, which they need to practise and learn for their spelling test which will happen every Friday. Please ensure that homework books are returned every Friday!
We also send out home reading books that are collected and changed every Wednesday. So please ensure they are returned to school for your child to receive a new one.
If you have any questions, queries or concerns please send me a message on Seesaw or speak to me at home time.
