Hello! My name is Miss McDougall. This is my third year of teaching and I am thoroughly excited to be teaching in St Michael’s this year and in Year 1! Year 1 is a very busy and exciting year as the children make the transition from Foundation stage and into Key Stage 1.
I want to ensure that all children develop a love of learning and continue to find and pursue their own passions and talents both inside and outside the classroom. As a teacher, I want all children to reach their full potential and continue to build a growth mind-set, where anything is possible!
I am lucky enough to be able to deliver a fun and engaging curriculum through “Super Learning” in the classroom. This provides lots of opportunities for development in different areas. A main focus in Year 1 is reading, so please ensure that you read with your child every night in order that they can engage with the text and read with fluency.
Thank you for visiting our class page. I will keep you posted with all the wonderful things that we do in our classroom. I hope it gives you a little glimpse of the exciting things that we are doing in school and I hope you find it a valuable resource.
If you have any worries, questions or concerns please do not hesitate to pop in to school at any point throughout the year.
