Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 webpage. Our year group consists of three classes and our teachers are  Miss McCallam, Mrs Harris and Mrs Vantara.  To help us with our learning we also have  Ms Smith, Mrs Booker, and Mrs Diamond. 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. Recently we wrote some amazing stories about dragons.

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. Did you know that a Diplodocus has a tail measuring 15 metres!

We are lucky enough to have  specialist teachers who teach us music and P.E. On Wednesday, we are taught drumming by Carlos Edwards and Chris Chapman teaches us gymnastics on a Friday afternoon. 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.
