Welcome to the Marvellous Moles and Super Squirrels!
Mrs Sansom, Miss Carey- Parsons and the team welcome you to Year 1! Year 1 is split into two different classes - the Marvellous Moles and the Super Squirrels. In Year 1, we work hard together towards achieving the Year 1 National Curriculum learning objectives through a fun, engaging and practical way. We are very excited to teach you all the wonderful things we have planned!
We embrace all areas of the National Curriculum in Year 1 and encourage children to understand the difference between them. During one short week we learn topic related material in lots of lessons including:
- R.E (Religious Education)
- P.E (Physical Education)
- P.S.H.E / R.S.E
Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday and we ask that all children come in their PE kit on these days.
Don't forget to read at least 5 times a week at home to receive a stamp on your chart. You can earn yourselves new books to take home if you keep this up!
Book bags and a named water bottle need to be in school every day.
On a Friday afternoon we have an Awards Assembly. We choose a bucket filler of the week, celebrate home achievements and reward the children who are reading at least 5 times a week at home. To celebrate the fantastic learning and behaviour that takes place during the week we also have 'Bucket Bonanza' on a Friday, this is a fun time enjoyed in the classroom!
Our first topic is all about our 'Cool School'! The topic begins by reading the book 'Starting School` by Franzeska Ewart. All of our learning will link to this book to make it relevant, fun and memorable. We will be learning about our school and what is on its grounds, following and creating maps.
Keep a look out for the maps that we make as at the end of our topic we will be adding them to the website to help people see just how brilliant our school is!
Please look out for regular updates and photographs of what we have been learning on Dojo.
If you need to ask anything then don't hesitate, we're here to support you all and make this year fantastic!
