Hello and welcome to Year 1. Our class teachers are Mrs Rogers and Miss Lambert and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Bell and Mrs Menzies.
Our aim for Year 1 children is to ensure they have a love of learning by developing their thinking skills and providing a warm, engaging environment for lessons. We aim to promote independent learning through lots of discussion and questioning. We enjoy coming across different problems and learning how to solve them with lots of cross curricular links.
In Year 1, we thrive on independent ideas and creativity and although we are preparing for more formal learning, we still like to have lots of fun. We try to use outdoor learning where possible and encourage the children’s imagination through the use of Talk 4 Writing methods. Our main priority is to ensure that all children become readers through the use of phonics and sight vocabulary.
This year’s topics include The Great Fire of London, Laughton and the local area and Dinosaurs.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do come and speak to a member of the Year 1 team and we will be happy to help.
