Welcome to Year 1
The teachers in Year 1 are Mr Ford (France), Miss Wright (Spain) and Mrs Woodward (Norway).
 
Mrs Lacey is our lovely teaching assistant.

In preparation for the phonics screening in June, we will be carrying out some additional sound assessments and phonics screenings. We may send home some resources in your child’s reading book to help them practise certain sounds.

We will be celebrating children’s reading efforts with a reading party at the end of term and there will be reading prizes for children who read the most.

If you would like any further advice on phonics, please do not hesitate to come and talk to us! :)

World Book Day!

We did not let the snow stop us in Year 1 and we had a fantastic World Book Day (morning!) The children's costumes were absolutely fantastic, dressing up as their favourite character from their chosen book.

 

Here are some pictures from Spain class enjoying some class time and then going over to Egypt class to read with some of the Year 5 children.

Term 2 - Around the World!

This term Year 1 have been really enjoying our topic 'Around the World'. We have taken a whistle stop tour around the world, conquering a continent a week!

 

Week 1 we delved into the African Savannah producing some fantastic Art work in the style or Gloria SSali. We used wooden sticks and paintbrushes to create our dotty animal pictures.

 

 

Week 2 we visited the wonderful world of Asia. We practised our dance skills by learning some Bollywood moves. We also learnt about Chinese culture and made some fantastic Carp Kites.

 

 

Week 3 we stayed closer to home and learnt all about Europe. First we did some map work and learnt about where all the different parts of the UK are. The teachers then really enjoyed preparing a delicious food tasting. We tried Greek olives, German sauerkraut and even Polish sausage! Some we found yummy, but some tasted yucky!

 

 

Week 4 we learnt about Oceania and produced some Aboriginal artwork. We also had fun learning about all the different animals and insects in Australia. One of our favourite parts of the week was sticking our tongues out and learning the New Zealand Haka!

 

Week 5 was North America week and we had a sports focus. We decided to try our hand at basketball skills, working well in our teams passing and bouncing the balls.
