Welcome. to. Year 1. The Year 1 team. Mrs Lunn – Teacher 1SL Mrs Greenhalgh – Teacher 1GG (Monday, Tuesday) Mrs Gallagher – Teacher 1GG (Wednesday - Friday) Mrs Drinkall – Teaching Assistant Mrs Kinder - Teaching Assistant. Our aims.
Maths isn’t just about adding
and taking away! Our teachers
try to make our lessons as fun
and practical as possible. When
learning about weights and
measures we even have the
opportunity to cook – and
eat the results!
We enjoy writing poetry, fiction and non-fiction in Year 1…but
it’s not all about writing! We also get to dress up for drama
activities, and ‘Show and Tell’ is always popular!
‘Materials’ is an exciting topic. We carried out an
investigation to see which material would be best to clean up a
spilt drink. We have learnt that some metals are magnetic. Best
of all we built houses that could not be blown down by the big
about our local
area we followed
Barnaby Bear to
France and then
to India. We tasted
some French food
– but not frogs
Visitors came to talk to us about India. They dressed up in Indian clothes and we were able to ask them questions that we had written during a Literacy lesson.
Both classes have access to role play. 1SL currently have a ‘Bob the Builder’ area to link with our Science topic. 1GG have a Church to link with our ‘Celebrations’ topic in RE.
In History we learn lots of things about the past. During the Summer
term we learn about homes long ago. We visit Killerton House which
is brilliant! This is us arriving on a double decker bus! We get to
dress up in clothes that the Victorians wear.
they didn’t have washing machines!
It’s a lovely day but we come home exhausted!
