Year 1

Welcome to Year One!

We are Year One! We are playful, super-duper and we love to learn incredible things! There are thirty one of us in our class and we have a few more girls than boys! This year we will all turn six and some of us will be visited by the tooth fairy! Our teachers are Mrs Rushton, Mrs Green and Mrs Snow and they all help us with our learning.

We are really fantastically clever! We love to learn lots of new things together and we always say that team work makes the dream work! We complete lots of practical activities before we work in our books. We know lots about our brilliant brains and that we always need to try hard to get better at our learning. We love number work and our phonics and handwriting is improving every day and we are superstars at counting! We play lots of games in our phonic lessons, learning to sound out, blend and practise hundreds of tricky sounds and words.

Year One love learning outside and having fun, especially in our school woodland. We hunt for numbers, collect letters or observe seasonal change as part of our ongoing science work! This year we will also be growing plants and watching them change as the months fly by. We are brilliant at learning with our hands and we love working together in our teams. We get to choose our own team names and they are very interesting! We work together in teams and all help each other, using our growth mindsets to support our learning by always having a go at the challenges we are set.

It is fun being outside at play times and lunch as we are fabulous footballers, speedy runners, and great at tag! We get to play with toys and we stretch our muscles on the gym equipment or agility trail! We are kind to each other and play nicely, following our school rules to be kind, stay safe and show respect.

We love being in Year One and we are growing in independence every single day!
