Welcome to Year 1!

The teacher in Year 1 is Mrs Parkinson.

In Year 1, our day starts at 8.50am. We have lunch at 11.50 and then play out until 12.50pm. Our day finishes at 3.05pm. We have PE on Monday and Dance on a Friday. 

We love to learn in Year 1 and although we still have an element of continuous provision within class, we do have a more formal learning environment with lots of hands on, exciting activities.

We have been reading the story of 'Dogger' by Shirley Hughes and we have done lots of work around losing our own toys, our feelings and practicing our phonetical spellings.
Our learning this half term has been focused around History within living memory. We have looked at Mrs Parkinson’s toys from when she was little and then compared them to our own toys which we brought into school. 
We went on a school trip to Portland Basin Museum, and walked down a street from 1920’s, discussing how life has so drastically changed since. We sat in an old school room looking at the school rules children had to follow – wearing Dunce hats and talking about being caned! 
Year 1 have more recently enjoyed learning about playground games children played at school and we will soon be trying to make our own moving toy.
During our maths learning, we have been doing lots of work with numbers - including ordering numbers, writing numbers and spelling number words. We will also be working on addition through hands on activities using cubes and other manipulatives.
