Miss Veazey and Miss Brailsford are the Year 1 teachers for 2018-19.
There are also a number of Learning Support Assistants and Higher Level Teaching Assistants who cover the classes from time to time.
Autumn Newsletter 1
The children have settled into Year One very well and we are very proud of their super learning!
This term our topic has been ‘Fantastic Me’. This has included investigating the human body and senses, healthy eating, drawing self-portraits and writing all about me poems. We even went into the forest to collect natural materials to make a self-portrait!
We have also thought about what we want to be when we grow up, we had lots of different ideas including a spaghetti bolognaise man, a rock star, a YouTuber and lots of teachers (which made the Year One staff happy!)
We have received a letter from The Hungry Caterpillar, who was looking for advice on what to put in his son’s lunchbox. The children gave fantastic suggestions including lots of fruit and vegetables. The Hungry Caterpillar was very grateful!
We have been working on our handwriting, we now all know what ascenders and descenders are and we are beginning to apply them in our writing. We are going to continue to work on our tall ascenders and long descenders next term and see if we can get our first handwriting certificates!
The children have been doing lots of outdoor learning this term and we hope to continue this throughout the year. We believe the children get lots from learning outside and we want to make the most of our beautiful forest and outdoor learning areas.
Key Stage 1 Multi Skills Festival
10 of our children attended a multi-skills festival this term. We are so proud of the children as they were awarded the ‘Spirit of the Games’ award. This meant the referees and staff at Charnwood identified the values the values they believe school sports and competitions should be about.
