Welcome to Year 1. My name is Mrs Marsh and I am the Year 1/2 Teacher, our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Brogan and Mrs Hester.
In English, each day, the children are engaged in a variety of structured ability grouped learning experiences.
The children in Year 1 are learning to write in response to a range of texts which include: recounts, poetry, instructions, narratives and information reports.
A daily focus on phonemic blending, spelling, reading, writing, speaking and listening is given.
In Mathematics, we continue to work through focus areas relating to the curriculum in a variety of fun and engaging activities. We use the Interactive Whiteboard, games and structured learning time with the teacher to consolidate our knowledge of concepts taught.
In Science, Geography and History we work with a topic focus, provided us with opportunities to research and learn about a variety of interests which we really enjoy.
We take part in PE every week with our sports coach, and really enjoy go to sports festivals.
Together with Year 2 on Thursdays, we enjoy the expertise of our music specialist and our very own Chef, who leads us in cooking culinary delights each week!
In Art we are learning about various artists. We examine the techniques used and sometimes make our very own interpretations of different works of art.
Our Design and Technology units of work have given us opportunities to design and make a range of objects and to work in 3D with different materials.
