Year 1 – Turtles

In year 1 we have the Pandas and Turtles classes.

We have daily English, Maths and Phonics sessions and we read every day after our lunch during ERIC time.

We develop our creativity and thinking skills by following an enquiry based curriculum. Throughout the year, we have trips around our local area, for example the church and the library. We also welcome a number of visitors to support our learning.

Our topics include:

This is me

Famous people/where we live

Plants and Animals

We have PE on a Thursday with a visiting coach who helps us develop gross motor skills through fun activities both indoors and outdoors.

We have music with In Harmony on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon where we will be learning how to play string instruments.

Our reading folders are sent home daily with a book that we must read 3 times to build up fluency. We are celebrated by moving along our class reward chart each time this occurs which leads to prizes when we reach number 10.

Online homework is also set on a weekly basis through Education city where we carry out a mix of activities linked to different areas of the curriculum.

We are looking forward to a fantastic year in year 1 please come and see us if you have any questions!
