Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 webpage. Our year group consists of three classes and our teachers are  Mrs Dent,  Mrs and Miss Wood.  To help us with our learning we also have  Mrs Kilmartin, Mrs Booker, Mrs Wakefield, Mrs Wilson, Miss Cross and Mrs Baber. They are our teaching assistants.

Each day is different and exciting! In the morning we love to spend time reading and learning our spellings and phonics. We then have a Literacy lesson where we get the opportunity to apply all of our phonics skills. 

After break we have maths. Each day we learn our numbers but our favourite lessons are when we get the chance to use practical resources to problem solve. There's nothing better than taking our learning outdoors. 

We are lucky enough to have  specialist teachers who teach us music and P.E. On Tuesday, we are taught drumming by Karlos Edwards. At the moment we are learning about Castles which is lots of fun. For our homework project someone even made a castle cake which we all got to have a slice of.

Did you know we have our own Forest School on site. We particularly enjoy our camp fires, roasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate. Sometimes you will find us climbing trees and whittling wood with our own knives!

    Practical tasks, such as cooking, housework or shopping.

    Physical care, such as helping someone out of bed.

    Emotional support, such as talking to someone who is distressed.

    Personal care, such as helping someone dress.
