Welcome to Year 1!

Classroom pictures for website 011

We love to learn in Year 1 and our learning is more formal than in Reception, but with lots of hands on activities.

Our learning is through Learning Challenge questions and we have a number of questions which we investigate over the year. This year our questions are:

  •  Why can’t a meerkat live in the North Pole
  • Where do the leaves go in Winter?
  • Why is the Wii more fun than Grandma and Grandad’s old toys? Or what has changed since your grandparents were young?
  • Would the Beatles have won the X Factor? Or Who was famous when mum and dad were little?
  • Where do and did the wheels on the bus go?

In Maths we have been working on ordering numbers and addition of two numbers by having lots of fun with numbers. We will also be looking at money and learning how to recognise different coins and notes.

In Year 1, our day starts at 8.50am. We have our lunch at 11:45 and then play out after we have eaten until 12.45pm. Our day finishes at 3.05pm.

Our class teacher is called Miss Knowles.
