Welcome to Year 1

Our teacher in Year 1 is Miss Stokes.  Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Broadbent.  We do lots of fun, exciting things in Year 1 which incorporate all aspects of the curriculum.  Please look on our blog to see what we have been doing.

We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research our topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.

Topic Challenges

Our Topic Challenge for this half term is 'Where We Live'. 

We will be learning all about where we live and what it is like now compared to what it was like in the past.  As part of this topic we will be looking at the scarecrows we see during Kearsley's Scarecrow Festival and maybe even making or own scarecrow.  This will link with our English work on 'Tattybogle'.  Once we are familiar with the area we live in and the buildings you can find, we will be looking at other types of buildings and their uses.  This will include castles and stories based on them.
