Year 1 - Robin Class

Welcome to Robin Class!

A huge welcome to Robin Class - Year 1 - at Steeple Morden Primary.

 

We have 27 children in Robin Class this year and our teachers are Mrs Bowmer and Mrs Andrews. Mrs Bowmer teaches Monday-Thursday and Mrs Andrews teaches on a Friday. She also covers Mrs Bowmer’s PPA time on a Wednesesday afternoon.

 

Mrs Carter is the class Teaching Assistant three days a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

 

In Robin Class we work 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 have already started to learn some British Sign Language and will continue throughout the year, including learning some songs, numbers, greetings and basic vocabulary.

 

Work on our first 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 will be 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…

We will also move on to thinking about where our school is and where we live. We think about Steeple Morden’s place in the world by looking at maps. We use and make plans and maps of stories and begin to think about how maps work so that we can draw simple plans of our homes, the school and the journeys we might take.
