Year 1 2020 - 2021

Miss Barrow

Mrs Holden

Hi there,

Welcome to our Year One page! The teachers in Year One are Mrs Holden and Miss Barrow and our amazing teaching assistants are Mrs Caliskan and Mrs Simpson.


This half term our class topic is Lets Go On Safari! Come along and find out what we will be learning about over the next six weeks...

Our English work will be based around the picture book 'The Lion Inside' by Rachel Bright. We will write our own stories inspired by her writing.

In Maths we will be working on place value within 20, moving on to addition and subtraction within 20 too.

Our science work will take advantage of all the new life that arrives with spring. We will visit Marshall's arm and find out about some of the plants and trees that we see on our walk. We will learn to label the main parts of common plants/trees. 

In Geography we will study Kenya and find out about the MAASAI tribe. We will compare our lives in Northwich to the lives of children who live in rural Africa.

In the morning, we will have English and Maths and Phonics. Class assemblies will take place in the classroom. In the afternoon, we will be focusing on our topic, science, computing and PE.  Children are asked to wear PE kit to school on these days. No PE kit is to be kept in school. Mrs Holden's P.E days are Monday and Wednesday and Miss Barrow's P.E days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

We love reading in Year 1!  We will begin the year by ensuring that each child is still in the habit of reading at home at least three times a week.  Reading is the foundation of all learning and your child will really benefit from regular reading with an adult at home.  The class teachers check reading diaries each week…and there are prizes! 

We are looking forward to an exciting and busy term.

Mrs Holden, Miss Barrow, Mrs Simpson and Mrs Caliskan
