Year 1

Mrs Beranová, Mrs Winkett and Mrs McHardy welcome you to our Year One page.
Since we are encouraging pupils to use the internet more than ever for home learning we must, as adults, try to ensure they remain safe online. We encourage you to monitor their internet use regularly and carefully. If you would like any more information about this then visit the Parent Tab on our homepage.
If you are uncertain of your log in codes please email me at our homework address and I will email them to you.

Our Autumn 1 topic is Memory Box. We explore how we have changed since we were babies, our senses and how the past is different to now. We even celebrate our own class wedding! 

Our Autumn 2 topic is Paws, Claws and Whiskers!

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers. What’s your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers? From pets at home to animals in the zoo,  we will observe draw and recreate animals as we find out all about them!
