We are Year 1!
We love to work really hard and earn Aspiration Points and completing class rewards. Our teaching time is focused 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 build on our knowledge of numbers to 10 and learn all about numbers to 100 by the end of the year. We learn how to add and subtract as well as counting in 2s, 5s and 10s as a whole 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.
