Teacher: Miss Madison
Teaching Assistant: Miss Mellish and Miss Fiveash

In Year 1 we are enthusiastic learners who try our best in everything we do. We are learning to become more independent and try new things, always embracing a challenge. We love being in the classroom and have lots of friends. In our class we believe it is important to smile always and laugh often. We are positive and exciting learners! We work in a fun and safe learning environment where the ethos is for everyone to try your best ‘have a go even if you don’t know’.

Every morning we come into school and wash our hands, we then settle into our learning spaces and complete an independent task that is ready for us whilst we wait for everyone to arrive. Then we tell Miss Maddison what we would like for lunch and split into our phonics groups. We spend some time in our Read Write Inc groups and then reward ourselves with a nice piece of fruit and a run around.

After our rest, we settle down again ready for a maths session. Very similar to last year we complete a number of different tasks including a talk task and an independent task - we love exploring in maths with our partners!

Our afternoons look different each day with a variety of different tasks to complete and not forgetting Forest School on a Thursday! 

We love Year 1!
