Hello and a Warm Welcome to the Year 1 Page!
The Year 1 teachers are Mrs Hoskins, Mrs Blair and Mrs Coppin.

Throughout the year we will be embarking on lots of thrilling topics & exciting experiences within our learning. We will share our learning journey and update the website with details of our current topic.
We will be sure to show you what we have been enjoying and been proud of!
Year 1 Curriculum Newsletter
We recently sent a letter home outlining key aspects of the Year 1 expectations, homework and structure. If any changes are made across the year, we will be sure to keep you informed along the way.
If you have any questions or information you would like to share, please use the Home School Contact Book. At the start and end of the day, two members of the Year 1 team will be available to communicate any matters. If you require a longer discussion, please contact the School Office to arrange a meeting.
As part of our topic we have been learning all about ourselves and how special we all are. We have been on an learning about the human body and our senses as part of this too. We used our senses to go on an Autumn walk around the school to take in the signs of Autumn.
We have also been thinking about what makes us proud and how special but different we all are. This has enabled us all to get to know the children really well and understand who they are.
The children really enjoyed choosing our enterprise products. They worked really hard creating bespoke and good quality items. Everybody got to show off their selling skills and we are really pleased with the profit we have made. Thank you to everyone who visited The South Pole Shop and purchased from us. See you again next year!
The Human Body
We all had a go at making our own human out of playdough. We had to name the body parts are say what jobs the body parts do.
As part of our Science work we have been learning about what happens in Autumn. We then mixed paints to create our own Autumn leaves to decorate our book corner.
To start our new topic we had a Halloween Party. We thought about what we need to include in a celebration and had fun at our very own party.
The children have begun their topic learning all about the Great Fire of London. They came into school last week to discover that their Pudding Lane role play had caught fire! The children went searching for clues about how the fire had started, they saw Samuel Pepys writing his diary. The clues led them to the garden where they found a diary entry written by Mr Pepys buried in the soil.
The children have been mixing colours to create paintings of flames.
Thank you to all the parents who came to join in with our exploring and investigating. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their learning with you.
