Thoughtfulness - Miss Hofton

Hello & welcome to our class page!

I'm Miss Hofton and this is my second year teaching Year 1 at Bradshaw. Outside of school I enjoy spending time catching up with my family and friends. I enjoy teaching fun and creative lessons and watching children become excited and inspired to learn more about our topics.

Our Class

· We currently have 29 children in our class - 20 boys and 9 girls!

· Our PE lessons are on Tuesdays so children need to come to school in the correct kit.

· The children are very good at keeping the classroom tidy and we have monitors that do jobs every week.

· In English, we are really focussing on our presentation and joining our handwriting. We always check our writing and make sure we include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We are also trying to extend our writing using connectives.

· In Maths, we use a range of resources to help us solve problems. We work with our maths buddies and help each other learn new skills.


The School Day

The classroom door opens at 8:45am, with the day beginning of 8:55am and finishing at 3:15pm. There is a morning playtime at 10:00am and lunch begins at 11:45am. The afternoon lessons begin at 12:30pm and there is an afternoon playtime at 1:30pm.
