Year 1 - Robin Class
Welcome to Robin Class!
We have 24 children in Robin Class this year and our teachers are Mrs Bowmer and Mrs Carter. Mrs Bowmer teaches Monday-Thursday and Mrs Carter teaches on a Friday. She also covers Mrs Bowmer’s PPA time on a Tuesday afternoon.
Mrs Carter is also the class TA 3 days a week. We also have Mrs Hannah as our TA on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesdays.
Mrs Ivey is also with us, supporting specific children in the classroom.
We are working hard to become the best we can be – choosing to be kind with our hands and words, trying our best and being brave when we find something more difficult. We are trying to read at least one story every day and have already started building up our ‘Story Line’.
We have already started to learn some British Sign Language and will continue throughout the year, including learning some songs, numbers, greetings and basic vocabulary.
Our first full week back in September was based around the book The Colour Monster and we focussed on our emotions and feelings; how to express how we feel and how to start coping with these emotions.
Please see the documents below which will help you support your child and understand what we are learning in class:
Our Topic this term is ‘This is Me’. We have been thinking of all the amazing things our bodies can do and will explore our senses. Although we know that we can see, hear, touch, taste and smell, there is a lot to learn about how these senses help us to find out about the world around us…
This term our Topic is ‘Terrific Toys’, which has a large History focus. We will explore how we find out about the past: first thinking about our own history, then looking at toys. We will continue our historical learning of toys through Art, D&T and Dance!
