The Year 1 team would like to welcome you to the new academic year. We hope you've all had a lovely break and your child is ready to learn new and exciting things we have in store for them. We strive to make our learning environments interesting and exciting where we will develop a range of thinking skills through first hand experiences. We will provide a stimulating, challenging and friendly working environment where every child is valued.
The children will still experience play, as we feel it plays a crucial role in children’s learning in all areas especially helping get top grips with the National Curriculum. To enhance the children's learning we will be providing experiences which will include off-site trips.
If you have any questions about Year 1 please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.

The Year 1 children loved visiting Year 2 this week to read their nocturnal animal fact files. The Year 2 children showed them their plans, drafts and final published reports. We were so impressed that we invited them back in the Spring term to read our fact files which we will create in the new year.

This week in Literacy the children have been exploring Autumn Poetry. We read several poems as a class and highlighted any words that rhymed, patterns in the structure and unpicked any tricky vocabulary. In groups the children performed the poems working on their rhyme and performance skills. In Maths this week the children have been looking at subtraction problems, they began by using objects to practically work out the answer. The children then moved on to recording their workings out pictorially before solving more challenging problems.
