Cassie for being really positive in her new school and class setting. She has embraced all challenges set. Well done.

Welcome to the Year 1 page

The children have settled well and are looking forward to the autumn term filled with ‘Wild Things’ fun. They have already made a ‘Wild Thing’ using sponge printing and collage (see gallery photos) for our class role-play area and are excited about making ‘wild thing’ cookies, fruit punch and toasted muffin sailboats for a Wild Rumpus party! Science will take us into wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees and I’m hoping the weather will be ‘wild’ on occasions so we can have first-hand experience for our storm paintings. Our trip to The Green Britain Centre will enable the children to experience wind energy from the heart of a modern Windmill (ground tour), see the fastest wind-powered vehicle on the planet and explore the gardens with a variety of tree species, wild flower species and organic vegetables. Where possible, our learning in Year 1 is cross-curricular to make it meaningful and fun. Please see the ‘Half-termly coverage’ and ‘Autumn 1 Topic’ documents for more details.

Any questions, just ask!
