Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to 1B.
Welcome to 1B! This half term our classroom has been filled with laughter, curiosity and discovery. We are working hard to build our independence and become confident learners. Currently, we are looking traditional tales such as The Gingerbread Man and are using our phonics to help us read and spell new vocabulary. In maths we are getting our hands dirty and using lots of practical resources to help identify numbers and their value. Keep an eye on our class page to see what we are getting up to!

Welcome to 1H
In 1H we work as a team to learn and support each other in everything we do. We are part of a great team in Year 1 and our motto is to ‘try everything! Although the children find it hard to believe, we welcome mistakes in our class, as it is proof they are learning. We understand that making mistakes is part of the children’s learning journey and using our ‘DREAMS’ core values enables them to develop and give them the skills to become lifelong learners. With determination, resilience, empowerment, appreciation, motivation and safety we can achieve ANYTHING – ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’.
We believe that listening to children read is vital. Children are expected to read from their school book every night: parents/guardians can record their child’s progress in their reading record books. Together, we need to challenge every child to read widely and often.
We have a very enjoyable year coming up filled with exciting activities and memorable experiences. We will learn about toys from the past, our bodies and the bodies of animals, Florence Nightingale and many other exciting subjects. The children will learn many skills, as well as knowledge through these subjects and trips out will enrich our learning.
