We are the Holly class!

Our class makes up half of the Year 1s at Dashwood Banbury Academy.  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 have become efficient story tellers.  You can ask any of us to tell you a story and we will always start with good story language.  The stories we have learnt over the last few terms included Little Red Riding Hood and The Gruffalo. Our writing is fantastic now as our phonic knowledge is increasing and we remember to use punctuation.

In maths, we love completing our weekly investigations where we work together in our talk partners to solve problems.  We are great at counting in 2s, 5s and 10s as a class and have all managed to improve our Big Maths CLIC test scores over the last term.

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

Our teacher is Miss McNulty. We listen carefully to them and they are proud of our super behaviour, especially when we are on trips such as swimming.
