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 try hard to become confident and fluent readers, capable and creative writers and logical and imaginative problem solvers! We work together in a play based environment and begin to use and apply the skills we are taught throughout all of our lessons. We will be doing lots of outdoor learning this year, which will help us to understand the environment and to learn in a practical way. We will also be doing lots of cooking each week; looking at fresh produce, healthy eating and how to cook a meal from scratch!
This year we begin our Topic work on ‘Lego’. This will involve building (lots!), designing Lego characters and designing, adapting and making our very own Lego cities. Other topics this year include: Feeling Fab! Let’s Escape, Let’s Communicate and Time.
We love using our outdoor area to continue our learning experience. We are working hard with Friends of Ghost Hill School to raise money for a new 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 2 Guinea Pigs in their run! On the right you can see our sensory garden and through to our teepee where we share stories and have adventures.
We had a reading cafe linked to our Talk for Writing book 'Peter Rabbit'.
