In Year 1, there are 30 children in our class (14 girls and 16 boys). We have Mrs Thorne and Miss Booth as our teachers. Mrs Thorne works in class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Miss Booth works in class on a Thursday and Friday. Mrs Loveday and Miss Clifton also work with us too.
Our classroom is in the Year 1/2 area and we have lots of space to learn and play. We also like using the outdoor space too.
In Year 1, we have Read, Write, Inc. phonics every morning. We are really good at our work in phonics and use our sounds to help us to read and write. In Year, 1 we love to read different stories!
We enjoy being creative in Year 1 and like to paint, draw and make things such as models.
On Wednesday 12th July, it was our transition day. We got to do lots of fun activities, including painting self-portraits. It was lots of fun playing team games and finding out what our new topic will be. Our first topic is ‘THE MAGICAL TOYMAKER’. We are learning about different toys from past and present. We are also using the film ‘Toy Story’ for part of our literacy work.
