Welcome to Year 1!

Our teachers are Mrs Scholes and Mrs Stevenson.

Miss Reid and Mrs Simpson also support us with our work.

Our Bible Verse is “God looked at all he had created and it was good” Genesis 1:31

English

In Year 1, we have started a new programme for teaching English. Read, Write Inc. is a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy skills. It is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. We have been learning lots of new sounds and we have enjoyed listening to lots of different stories.

Maths

In Maths, we have been learning to read and write numbers to 20. We are starting to know how many tens and units a number has and we have learnt different ways of adding two numbers together. Here are some children using cubes and a balance scale to find the weight of different classroom objects.

 Marvellous Me!

Our Topic this half term is called Marvellous Me! We have been naming the parts of our bodies and we have found out about our five senses. We have enjoyed creating portraits of ourselves.
