We are Mrs Ginnetta and Mrs Freeman, the Year 1 Class teachers who would like to warmly welcome you to the Year 1 page. We are a busy class who enjoy learning inside and outside. We get 'hands - on' and relish the chance to investigate. We are engineers, inventors, scientists, authors and artists. We recently made our own windsocks as you can see at the top of the page! Oh and if you are wondering who the bears at the bottom of the page are, they are Pip and Pop, and if they havent already will be coming to visit you soon.
In English we are currently reading The Jolly Postman and some traditional tales. In Maths we are learning about shape and place value. In Science we are observing the changes in the seasons and the weather and our new topic is 'Toys' comparing those played with today with those of the past.
Mrs Ginnetta teaches Mon-Wed with Mrs Vincent (Mon am), Mrs Underwood (pm) and Mrs Penny- Meech takes groups for Art and D&T. Mrs Freeman teaches Thurs - Fri with Mrs Vincent (am) and Mrs Underwood (pm).

There is a weekly update on Tapestry so you can find out what we have been upto.
We get asked a lot if there is anything you can do at home to support your child's learning at home. Reading with your child at least 3 times per week is really important. Also, each week there is a list of spellings for them to practice inside their reading diary which are based on words they have been introduced to in Phonics. Helping your child to practice these and listening to them read is crucial. You can help their Maths by practicing counting forwards and backwards and also getting those number bonds to 10 and then 20 embedded in their brains. If you need help supporiting your child, please talk to us.
