Year 1

We welcome all Goldfinches, Robins and Wagtails into Year One and we are looking forward to learning, discovering and exploring together.



Term One

Our topic is called,

'Me and other animals.'


We are going to be learning about ourselves and other animals. We will learn names for body parts inside and outside the body and investigate using our senses. It is going to be fun!


We cannot wait to see the different animals you have been making at home.  We have enjoyed reading about the different things you have been doing over the Summer on Tapestry. 


The book we are going to be reading is called, 'The snail and the whale' by Julia Donaldson. We will be asking questions about the characters and pretending to be them! We will pretend to explore the different places they travel to.


The Year One team have been working hard to make the environments as stimulating and inviting as possible. We cannot wait for you to explore them! The doors that link the classrooms have been opened and the space is fantastic, so we can now learn in all the Year One classrooms and outside.


Where will you choose to learn?


Will you go into Goldfinches class and learn about numbers or pretend to be an explorer in the role play area?


You could make maps of your adventures in Robins Classroom, experiment with the measuring equipment or even publish your own book...



Or you could travel into Wagtails and explore shape and use the construction materials to build, practicing different attachment techniques...




Mrs Bones came to see us. She told us about the human skeleton and how it protects our organs. We asked her questions such as, "Why do our knees move?" Do you know the answer?
