We are each unique and beautiful, but together we are a masterpiece...
Our class teacher is Miss McGowan; she is supported by Miss Robinson. Mrs Hoyle and Mrs Doyne will also both be Support Assistants in the class during Autumn term.
Welcome to the start of a new year! The summer is behind us and we are all raring to go in Year 1.
Our topic this half term is 'Local Detectives', which is a history and geography topic based around the local area. We will be spending some time outdoors at various points, for example to go on a walk around the village, so please ensure your child has a good coat in case of rain!
In maths this term we will be covering place value, addition and subtraction (within 10) following the White Rose Maths Hub planning.
In English we will be doing work around our topics, continuing with our phonics and learning new sounds. We will also be completing writing tasks on a text based around houses and homes.
My door is always open for any queries or questions, so please feel free to come and see me or grab me in the playground after school. There will also be a 'Meet The Teacher' evening shortly so I look forward to meeting a lot of you then!
