Motivate, Educate, Achieve

Year 1

Welcome to Year One!

In Year One you will be working with Mrs Beranová (class teacher) and Miss Croft (teaching assistant). On Tuesdays we will be joined by Mrs Winkett (HLTA).

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.

Welcome to our first term in Year One.

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!
