Hello and welcome to our Year 1 families!
I am privileged to call myself the Year 1 teacher, as it's such an important job to support your children in the transition from Early Years to working within the national curriculum. I'm always amazed to witness just how much the children grow during the year and I hope you, their parents, enjoy watching them grow and learn throughout this time.
Please be assured that we are here for our families. If you have any worries or questions about anything, do call or drop us an email. Similarly, if you are chuffed with something, please let us know too as it's always nice to know! :)
Thank you always for your continued support.
Meet the Teacher information
I asked some of last years pupils to tell everyone what learning in Year 1 was like for them.
Please see the video below
Autumn 2 - Fairytale Pets
We begin Autumn 2 by reading the story Fairytale Pets. We meet the characters Bob and Rex and the curious looking pets that they take in to their home. This fun book is perfect for exploring the suffix's ing and ed and this will be introduced into our own writing when retelling a narrative.
In science we explore materials and ask questions about their properties.
In our RE learning we will be asking:
What can be learnt about Jesus from the Nativity story?
When working with your child at home, support your child in part, give instructions, hints and pointers, but ensure your child's work is not solely a copying exercise as 'developing independence' is the name of the game.
