VIRTUAL SCHOOL TOUR

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

 

Our Year 1 classes are called Bluebell and Primrose.

 

In Year 1, we work together to build relationships with each other and to improve our social skills.  We build on our phonic knowledge throughout the year, which supports us in developing a love for reading and an increasing ability to share our thoughts in a written way. We try hard to become work logical and imaginative problem solvers, whilst listening to other ideas and thoughts.  In year 1 we work together and begin to use and apply the skills we are taught throughout all our lessons.

 

Our first topic in year 1 is ‘Location, Location, Location’. This involves learning about the UK and capital cities, we have some really fun songs which help us remember facts! We also explore our local area when we take a walk to look for different landmarks around our local environment. 

 

Other topics this year include: 'I Have the Power', 'Out of This World', ‘Toys', 'Once Upon a Time' and 'Land Ahoy!”  If you would like more information about our curriculum, please get in touch with a member of staff.

Outdoor Learning at Ghost Hill

 

Our Year 1 students love using our outdoor area to continue our learning experience. At Ghost Hill, we are lucky to have a wonderful canopy, so that we can explore and learn outside all year round!

 

Below left, you can see our bespoke obstacle course, growing and digging areas... and if you look closely, you may even spot our Guinea Pig in her run! On the right you can see our sensory garden and our wooden story circle where we share stories and have adventures.

Year 1 in Action!

 

 

Children In Need

 

We all dressed up to support Pudsey Bear and to raise money for children who are not as lucky as we are. We posted lots of pennies in the boxes that our School Council representatives made. We raised a fantastic £282.04, so well done to everyone involved!

Red Nose Day

 

We had a super Red Nose Day! We came dressed in pyjamas and donated £1 each to help others. We started the day by making a huge red nose and filling it with all of our Superheroes. We then designed our own red noses, drew superheroes, and learnt what Red Nose is all about.

 

Dottie (top row, centre) won the best joke award with: What key can open a banana? A monkey! 😂

 

 

 

PE Lockdown Star

 

A huge well done to Daisy in Bluebell Class for being awarded Ghost Hill's first Lockdown PE award! As part of our online offer during lockdown, Mrs Tubb and Mrs Everett posted a PE lesson and healthy lifestyle challenge every week. Daisy completed EVERY session and even encouraged her little sister to join in too! Well done Daisy, you are a real superstar and look very proud of your award. 

 

Daisy said: "I am really happy that I won it. I was doing really good PE at home. I liked it when I was throwing snowballs at my snowman, it was fun! I think six snowballs hit the snowman. Throwing helped me learn to hit a target. I was really good at throwing because I practiced with the snowman. I could throw socks into pots and pans and mugs. I got five socks in the targets and my little sister got three!"
