Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Class Teacher: Miss Watkins

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Brown

Year 1 is taught by Miss Watkins. Mrs Brown helps support us with our learning.

Miss Watkins enjoys planning and delivering creative lessons taken from the children’s interests. Our topics often include ‘Heads and Tails’, ‘Superheroes’, and ‘How Does Your Garden Grow’. She is the subject leader for Art and Design & Technology, so loves teaching the children new forms of art and encouraging children to be imaginative and creative.

Just look at some of the things we have been doing so far.

The highlight of our week in Class 1 has been dressing up in our fantastic costumes and perform to our grown-ups. We loved working with the Year 2 children on our performance of ‘The Christmas Express’. We hoped you loved it too!


This term we have been continuing to learn about animals, so we changed our role pay area from a doctors' to a vet surgery. We have had great fun caring for all of the animals, grooming them, feeding them and making them better. We have also had some real pet visitors come into the class to visit us. This term we have also learnt to label animal body parts, group animals and about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.


In maths we have been practising our number bonds to 10. To help us we have been singing songs and we made shiny number bond butterflies.

To help us learn about humans we had a visit from a parent who works in the hospital. We found out about x-rays and different bones in our body.

We love hunting for shapes in the sand and playing in our doctors surgery.

On a Monday we practise our tennis with our tennis coach Steve.
We have been enjoying our forest school sessions with Richard from Really Rural. We have been making pictures in the woods and we made own brooms to help tell the story of Room on the Broom.
