Meet the Year 1 team!
Mrs Bray and Mrs Barker work with the year 1 children and support their learning in a nurturing and stimulating environment. We have a large outdoor space which is used on a daily basis, where the children can explore the natural environment and take their learning into the outdoors.
Throughout the year we cover a range of different topics in fun and exciting ways. This year we are going to learn about pirates and how to build ships that float. Also we will become poets, writing about the seasons and creating art in nature.
Once a week the children visit our fantastic Forest School. These sessions take place on a Wednesday morning with Mr Howard, Mrs Barker and Mrs David. Whatever the weather, the children wrap up warm and have great fun learning to use tools, sitting around the fire and building shelters.
PE takes place twice a week, and consists of an outdoor games session and either gymnastics or dance. In the Autumn term the children will have a specialist gymnastic teacher to build on skills they have learnt. During the summer term, the children will be going swimming once a week with the Year 1 team.
