Return to Children

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 with Mrs Moore, Mrs Lilley, Miss Bennett and Mrs Scozzaro

We have been so impressed already with how well the children have settled in to the new routines of Year 1. We are so happy to see the children arrive at school with big smiles on their faces and ready to embrace the school day.

The children have demonstrated their enthusiastic approach to learning and they are already developing their independence. Throughout this year, we will be focusing on developing the children’s confidence, independence and growth mind set in order for them to be the best they can be!

In English, we will be focusing on ensuring the children develop an understanding of the structure of a sentence and are sentence secure by the end of year 1. In phonics, we will start the year be revising the children’s learning of Phase 3 phonics in early years, and will then move on to phase 4 and phase 5 phonics. In maths, we use a range of different apparatus to develop and secure children’s understanding of number.

We are all excited and ready for a fun-filled year of learning!

Christmas Science Enquiry!

As a way of developing our scientific enquiry skills, each year group took part in a Christmas themed science experiment. The children had to investigate dissolving candy canes, making decisions about the scientific questions they wanted to answer and deciding how best to carry out the experiment. It was fascinating seeing how the different liquids effected the speed at which the candy canes dissolved.
