We have one class in Year 1 this year and we are called Class 2. Our teacher is Mrs Gilbert and our teaching assistant is Mrs Heaton. In Year 1 we love learning, exploring our environment and working hard too. We have many exciting areas in our classroom from the creative area, to the roleplay, writing and construction areas. We also have a ‘reading garden’ where we love to read and share books and have our ‘favourite five’ that we read at the end of each day.
We are a team. Everyone is valued for their uniqueness, their skills and talents. In Year 1 you will find mathematicians, authors, artists, scientists, explorers, designers, journalists, musicians, actors, teachers and historians. We are kind and caring, respectful and considerate and show resilience in our learning. Our classroom is a calm and happy space where we have many opportunities to talk and discuss topics, including our feelings. We have our own ‘worry monster’ and we can post any worries in his mouth.
In the morning we have Phonics, English and Maths. In English this term, our learning is based on the book ‘Funnybones’ by Janet and Allan Ahlberg and in Maths, we are learning about ‘Number and Place Value’. In the afternoon we learn through a range of topics that are exciting, stimulating and fun. This term, some that we will be focussing on are; ‘Me, my town and my family in the 1950s’, ‘Colour Creations’, ‘Me and my school’ and ‘My Body’. We are celebrated for our successes as move along our individual learning journeys and are looking forward to building on our skills and learning many new ones too!
