Welcome ToYear 1
This year we have lots of fun and exciting topics and trips to look forward to and we cannot wait to get started!
The Teachers in Year One are: Miss Wilkinson, Mrs Gabbitas (Phase One Leader) and Miss Willis (Wednesday-Friday: additional support and cover for Mrs Gabbitas’ management time and Fridays).
The Teaching Assistants are: Ms Reade, Mrs Stagg (Monday-Wednesday), Miss Colnic (Thursday-Friday) and Mrs Myres.
P.E: Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure that PE kits are brought in on Monday so the children are properly prepared for both lessons. At times, we may go outside for PE, a warm jacket or jumper may be beneficial during the colder temperatures. Please ensure that all PE kit is labelled clearly with your child’s name.
Although we try to make sure kit goes home with the right child, this is sometimes a struggle and misplaced kit can be located in the lost property boxes at the coat pegs.
Homework: Home Learning menus are given out at the start of every half term highlighting activities and projects the children can complete based on their current topic. These are optional and not all tasks need to be completed. Children will have the opportunity to share their learning with the rest of their peers in mini-class assemblies or virtual zoom calls with other classes. Children can also share their learning on class dojo.
PPA: Our PPA is on a Monday afternoon. During this time children will be taught by Mrs Robinson who covers Philosophy for Children and Mr McCaroll who covers P.E.

This half term all of our learning is centred around ourselves and other animals! As part of our Topic we will become artists and design our own self-portraits developing our colouring mixing skills and drawing skills.
In addition, we will hopefully have the chance to interact and get hands on with some animals this term which will tie in to our class topic.
This first-hand experience should help us to continue to develop our observational and identifying and classifying skills which will link into our work as scientists.
