I am Mrs Hume and I am the Year 1 teacher.
I love reading and yoga and walking my dog Dora on the beach. I support Newcastle United and enjoy going to St James Park to watch the matches with my two boys!
I am very excited to welcome the children into Year One and really looking forward to a fantastic year together! The children will continue to learn through play in many aspects of the day but the day is more structured than it was in Reception. We continue to learn in a variety of ways including at tables, while moving, exploring outdoors, in groups, on the carpet or on the computer. Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis. Reading should always be an enjoyable, shared experience where children develop a love of books and stories. The children may be tired at the end of the day and therefore ‘Little, but often’ is most effective and five to ten minutes of practise, several times a week is
recommended. We will have PE sessions twice a week and continue to provide PE Kits.
