Our Year 1 staff are our lovely teacher Mrs Davies and our fantastic TA, Miss Lowery. The first term in Year 1 is all about teamwork, developing our independence and practising some of our key skills; phonics, cursive writing and place value.
The learning environment in Year One is made up of both resourceful and interactive displays which the children are encouraged to make use of throughout all areas of learning. These areas include a fun, topic themed reading area, a role play area as well as interactive displays that allow children to consolidate their learning.
Our children are a confident group of children who want to do well and like to be involved in all areas of school life. Their enthusiasm is transferred throughout all areas of learning including music and PE, which the children thoroughly enjoy.
Our class novel for the second Autumn half term was Gorilla by Anthony Browne.
In the Summer term we looked at the book Oliver's Vegetables as part of our topic work on 'The Scented Garden'. We invited our parents in to a stay and play session where they helped us to make grass heads. We are now competing to see which head has the craziest hairstyle and grows the most grass hair.
