Year 1

Welcome to year 1
Our teachers are Mrs Hall and Mrs Luximon
We are very excited to be back after the summer holidays and are ready to learn new and exciting things. Our first topic this term is 'All about Me' we will be finding out about our local area and what it was like to be a child long ago. 
PE is on a Monday and will be taught by Miss Warwick, please ensure you have a full PE kit in school.
We love to read in year 1 and will be sharing many stories across the year to help us become good writers. The children will have daily phonics lesson and will read in small groups with an adult.
Check our web page regularly to find out what we have been learning.
Each week the children are set challenges to complete during independent learning time. 
In our geography lessons we have been making messy maps of the classroom using drawings and found objects.
We have been using practical equipment and number tracks to work out 1 more and 1 less than a number within ten.
The children have been looking at maps of the local area, they located the school and places that are close to the school.
" Victoria Park is close to our school" ( Theo)
" I don't live by school, I live far away" ( Bobby)
" There's the library, its not far away" ( Ruby)
