Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. We are very excited to begin Key Stage One and are looking forward to further developing our learning through a range of exciting opportunities throughout the year. Mrs Storer is our teacher, along with Mrs Cruse, who teaches us one morning a week. We are also lucky enough to have Mrs Walker working with us in our class!

Term 1 

What an exciting start to the term! We have begun a topic on dinosaurs and we are really enjoying finding out about these Prehistoric creatures. We have been reading Harry and the dinosaurs say Raaaahh and have drawn some fantastic story maps to sequence the story. We are learning some dinosaur songs with Mr Holdaway too and have been busy producing some fantastic paintings for our classroom.

We have been busy sorting and counting in maths and are learning to count forwards as well as backwards. We are just beginning to explore place value and understand why we write our numbers as we do.

As if this exciting learning wasn’t enough, we were lucky enough to have a skipping workshop last week! We impressed our teacher with our skipping skills and showed real perseverance. Not one of us gave up and we all showed a huge amount of progress in just one session. We are going to continue practicing each week and are confident we can get even better!
