Welcome to the Seedlings - Year one
Miss Thomas is the class teacher for Year 1 and is supported by Mrs Mewton (KS1 TA) in the mornings and Mrs White (KS1 in the afternoons). The seedlings class is made up of 30 wonderful year 1’s and we are lucky enough to have an amazing, spacious classroom with a small outdoor area just for us!
Each morning we enjoy learning our sounds through Read Write Inc. In Literacy, we have enjoyed creating a fact file with lots of information and facts about the animals we visited on our recent trip to Feadon farm. We are now building up to write our very own letters! In numeracy, we are working on addition and subtraction - we have been adding 3 numbers together, recognising our doubles and our number bonds to help us. We like to learn new maths songs to enhance our learning further.
During our afternoons we like to learn all about our new topic - which this term is ‘Animal Allsorts’. We have enjoyed learning about all of the animal groups - mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, insects and fish. We also like to take part in PE, where we are learning dance and multi skills, ICT and RE.
Parents and carers - you are welcome to come in to our classroom on Friday mornings. Your child would love to show you our displays and you can help them choose a new book or practice their handwriting or number formation with them.
If anyone has any queries, I am available before and after school.
