Year 1 – Turtles

Welcome to the year 1 Turtles class!  Our class teacher is Miss Penaluna and we are supported by Miss Middlemiss

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

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 Thursday and Friday afternoon where we will be learning how to play string instruments.

Reading folders are sent home daily with a book that we must read three times to build up fluency.  We celebrate our reading at home by moving along a class reward chart each time this occurs.  When we reach number 10 we choose a prize.

Homework is set regularly focusing on different areas of the curriculum.  Spellings and phonics are also sent home to learn.
