Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1, we work hard to become good learners, ready to tackle the National Curriculum. We continue to have opportunities to play and engage in practical activities, whilst learning to read, write and apply number facts with increasing fluency, independence and confidence.
Our topics are all based around books, chosen to excite the children in cross curricular lessons and ignite a passion for reading.
Wow, what a fantastic start to Year 1!
We enjoyed reading ‘Elmer’ and thinking about how we are all different and special. We took part in our ‘Marvellous Me Olympics’.
We had a Reading Pyjama Party where our parents learnt how they can help us with our reading and then we shared our favourite stories.
We all had a fabulous time on our trip to the Rare Breeds Centre where we learnt about lots of different kinds of animals and how to care for them. We all enjoyed the trailer ride! When we got back from our trip, we wrote about our day.
We went on an Autumn walk around the school grounds and we picked some blackberries and apples to make a delicious fruit crumble:
We read the Christian creation story and created some beautiful art work.
We had a fantastic Storytelling week this year. The theme was all around flying creatures and the children explored the text ‘Calvin Can’t Fly’. By the end of week they could retell the story themselves!
