Welcome to Year 1
Class Teacher: Miss Bishop
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Edwards
Year 1 is taught by Miss Bishop. Mrs Edwards helps support us with our learning.
Miss Bishop enjoys planning and delivering creative lessons taken from the children’s interests. Our topics often include "Zooming into Year 1", "Toys", "Once upon a time", "Superheroes" and "How does your garden grow".
In Year 1 we are reading the story 'Little Red Riding Hood' and we are extremely excited to go on a wolf hunt in the woods when we visit Puzzlewood next week. In preparation for our wolf hunt, we have been thinking about what the wolf looks like. We have made wolf masks using different materials and we pretended to be wolves creeping through the woods in our school woodland area. We have also made wanted posters with incredible adjectives so everyone can help us find the wolf!
We have been very engaged in our space topic in Year 1. We have loved reading the story ‘Whatever Next!’ and acting out the story in groups. This week we chose different scenes from the story and created a freeze frame for our class mates to guess the scene.
We have also been learning about Henri Matisse and his ‘cut-out’ technique. We took inspiration from this to create our own cut-out colourful planets.
