Welcome to year 1! We hope you had a lovely summer with lots of rest and fun and are ready to come back to school to start our new school year. We are all very excited to begin our Autumn term in year 1! Our class teacher is Miss Duck and our teaching Assistant is Miss Corrigan.
In year 1 we are working really hard to be kind, thoughtful and work together as a team. We do our best to follow the golden rules and always be green.
The Autumn term is very exciting and year 1 have lots of fantastic things to look forward to. We have a class trip planned to the transport museum to help us with our IPC topic. There will be lots of exciting learning opportunities this term as well as joining in with the rest of the school in some Christmas fun!
In June year 1 will complete a phonics screening test so excellent attendance and punctuality is essential.

Learning in Action
Year 1 re-told the story ‘Peace at Last.’ We added Pie Corbet inspired actions to help us remember what happened in the story. We worked in groups to act out different parts of the story. We each looked at a different place where Mr Bear tried to go to sleep and came up with actions to help us remember where about in the house Mr Bear had gone.
In our maths lesson we were looking at greater than and less than. We learned that the crocodile always eats the biggest number.
