Welcome to Year 1...
We have a special friend in year 1 who is Lola the Listening Leopard. She helps us to become better speakers and listeners. In year 1 we work hard to be kind and gentle with each other and to get along as a team.
We go back in time and find out all about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. Then we shoot off into space when we read about The Jigaree (who is a little space alien) and learn about the real astronaut, Neil Armstrong. Throughout the year we visit the woods and the local area to discover what happens as the seasons change. In science we learn about different plants and animals and investigate the variety of materials in our environment.
We enjoy lots of different stories and poems and through drama and puppet play become brilliant story tellers. This helps us to write our own stories. At the end of the year we have an exciting trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park where we explore all sorts of fantastic sculptures!
You will have a great time!
