We are a wonderful Year 1 class and our teacher is Miss Bestwick. On Tuesday’s our teaching assistants are Mrs Edwards and Miss Gunnell.
Alongside the 30 children in our class, there is also our ‘class bear’ who we named Bobby!
Bobby bear helps us every day with our learning, and the lucky ‘Star of the Day’ gets to look after him for the night at home.
This will involve the children making their own hot air balloons using Paper Mache, looking at the weather around the world and how it changes, we will also be keeping our own weather diaries.
We will be travelling around the United Kingdom in our balloons to find out what it is like to live in Scotland, Wales and Ireland, comparing the different places to each other as well as England.
Our RE and PSHE work will be linked to this by finding out about the Creation story and how we can care for our world.
In literacy we will be developing the children's writing skills through GAPS, spellings, phonics, special thoughts writing and writing to entertain others.
In maths we will be focusing on multiplication and division.
