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 "Book Monsters".  Come along and find out what we will be learning about over the next seven weeks...


Our English work will be based around the picture book "Nibbles" by Emma Yarlett. We will write our own stories based upon her story.


In Maths we will be focusing on Addition and Subtraction within 10 and  2D/3D Shape. 


In our science lessons we will be focusing on identifying and classifying animals into different animal groups and finding out whether they are carnivores, omnivores or herbivores!


In History we will be finding out all about Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot against King James!

Have a look at our "Book Monsters" topic web to find out more about what we will be up to this term!

Year 1 Routine

In the morning, we will have English and Maths and Phonics.  Assemblies will take place in the hall.  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 Thursday and Miss Barrow's P.E days are Tuesday and Thursday.

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 online reading diaries each week.

We are looking forward to an exciting and busy half term.

Mrs Holden, Miss Barrow, Mrs Simpson and Mrs Caliskan
