Welcome to Wagtails!
Welcome to the Wagtail class. We are a class of 29 wonderful Year 1 children. Mrs Willett and Mrs Parsons are our teachers in the Wagtail class. We also have Mrs Humpherston as our teaching assistant to help us with our learning.
I am in my fourth year of teaching and this is my third year in the Wagtail class. My favourite subjects to teach are Maths, Phonics and PE. I like to make my lessons exciting by linking the learning to the children’s interests and by creating practical opportunities to experience learning in a range of different ways.
I am new to Billinghay CE Primary this term and I am very pleased to be teaching Year One. I have been a teacher for twenty years now and have taught at lots of different schools around the country. My favourite lessons to teach are English and History and I love to teach cookery with my class as my favourite TV programme is The Great British Bake Off!
In the autumn term, our first topic of the year is going to be based around the Three Little Pigs story where we will try to answer the question ‘which materials should the three little pigs have used to build their houses?’ We have many exciting challenges ahead including science investigations and experiments to test different materials for the pigs.
Throughout the year, we will also be working on our phonics skills every morning. This allows us to decode a range of words that unlock our ability to read and access other challenges.
