Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Your teachers this year are Mrs Saunders, Mrs Smith and Mrs Coren. We are supported with our learning by Mrs Maher and Mrs Ashley (Mrs Saunders' class) and Mrs Sims, Miss Kirby and Miss Dohoo (Mrs Smiths'/Mrs Corens' class). 

A typical day includes early morning work, Read Write Inc Phonics and Reading, Maths, English and then Continuous Provision in our Year 1 outdoor area, alongside Challenge Curriculum time or PE, PSHE, RE, Computing, Science, Music etc.

As well as enjoying the learning in our outside area and in the classroom, we enjoy visiting Tanglewood, our forest school, with Mrs Hext and Miss Crone.

As you can see from our attached curriculum map, we have a lot to look forward to this year. So far this year we have been learning about Geography of the United Kingdom in our topic 'We are United!'. In Science, we have been learning about Seasons and Materials and are investigating the properties of some materials to see if we can make a waterproof hat for teddy bears going on a picnic. 

We are looking forward to continuing to see your child's progress over the year.
