Topaz Class (Year 1)
Welcome to Topaz Class!
Class Teacher: Miss Mills
A Message From Miss Mills:
I have been teaching at St Mary Cray for many years now, and I have seen many children grow from strength to strength and make outstanding progress. If children have a good start to school life then it sets them up well for the future! I have worked in EYFS as well as years 1, 2, and 3 and I am delighted to be teaching in Topaz Class this year.
I am very passionate about teaching children to read. We use Read Write Inc Phonics which enables children to build confidence and learn at their own pace. They will learn the sounds, blending the sounds to read words such as: dog, cat, pat and then they will learn to read sentences! The children will have the opportunity to have a lot of stories read to them as well as share their own favourite stories!
This will be an amazing start to school life for the children and I am sure they will enjoy learning lots of new skills. We have a holistic approach to teaching and learning, we encourage the children to believe in themselves and develop a love for learning.
My door is always open if you need to speak to me about anything!
