Hello and welcome to our year one page!
We have two classes, 1B and 1P and we are looking forward to the year ahead.
In 1B we have Miss Butler and Miss Hanlon and in 1P we have Mrs Pemberton and Miss Malone. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Carruthers working with small groups too.
During the Autumn term, we have been learning about a variety of topics.
In our English topics, we have been looking at different Oracy units which are helping us to read, plan and write our own stories. We also studied Traditional Tales which were fun and gave us great ideas for our WOW writing!
In maths, we have been working on different aspects of number- counting, place value, addition and subtraction). We visited Tesco to look for Maths in the environment and how we use Maths in everyday life, solving problems about Gingerbread men - how many would we need for 30 children if there are 5 in a bag?
We had a super visit from Tempus Fugit who told us all about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot. We did some excellent recounts about this visit so our English and History skills were developed through one visit.
Spring Term WOW visitor Misoshi
Year One had the privilege of a WOW visitor Misoshi this week. She was fabulous and both classes had a great morning with her! We listened to her playing her drum and we all got to join in with the dancing and singing. Misoshi then went on to tell us a story about Handa's surprise. We got to see all of the fruits that she carried on her head. We even got to see how people from Ghana carry their children- she showed us by carrying Mya and Dalal on her back. Have a look at some of our photos...
