Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

We have 28 children in our class (16 girls and 12 boys) and our teacher is Mrs Bowmer.

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Reeves who works in our classroom with us every morning. Mrs Littlefair covers PPA on a Tuesday afternoon and also works with us on a Monday afternoon. Mrs Brown works in both our classroom and with groups of children on 3 afternoons during the week.

Spring Term

This term we have been exploring our topic "An Enchanted Isle". The children have been very enthusiastic in their learning about the continents and oceans around the world. We have focused on some lovely island destinations, watching videos, researching on the internet and looking in atlases to help us find them. We have used all we have discovered to help us write fact files on them. We have created our own islands in small groups, using papier mache and are looking forward to painting them, describing their features and using them to help with our story-telling over the coming weeks.

We have been exploring many different aspects of maths, trying to deepen our knowledge and expand our ability to describe and talk about what we can do.

We are making good progress with our phonics, and are practising our handwriting so we are better able to write our lovely ideas down.

‘Lights, Camel, Action:- It’s Strictly the Nativity’

We all really enjoyed performing our nativity for you – acting, singing and especially dancing, as you can see from these lovely photos!
