Year 1 Hazel and Holly

We are Year 1!
We love to work really hard and earn Aspiration Points as well as getting our names on the rainbow and completing class rewards. Our teaching time is focus and fun so we are developing into sensible and confident young learners.

Over the year we will become efficient storytellers.  You can ask any of us to tell you a story and we will always start with good story language.  The stories we will learn over the next few terms include Little Red Riding Hood and The Gruffalo. Our writing is improving as our phonic knowledge is increasing and we remember to use punctuation.

In maths, we have begun to love completing our brand new Inspire workbooks which allows us to complete weekly investigations where we work together with our talk partners to solve problems.  We are working on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s as a class.

We also enjoy creative curriculum time as we get to work in groups and learn about the world around us.  In PE we will be able to throw a ball more accurately and balance on different parts of our bodies.

We listen carefully to our teachers and they are proud of our super behaviour, and this outstanding behaviour is expected especially when we are on trips such as swimming.
