Year 1


Welcome back to school and Happy New Year 2020!


Welcome to spring term in Year 1.


Our topic in the spring term is ‘Growth and Green Fingers’ based around the topic plants.

In science we will learn what plants need to survive and we will carry out various investigations to see if plants need light and water. We will also learn the parts of a plant. We will walk around school identifying plants and trees.  We will learn about the season winter and learn about seasonal changes.


In English we will look at classic stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Oliver’s Vegetables. We will also be looking at instructions using our reading and writing skills. In grammar lessons we will be learning how to use different punctuation marks correctly such as exclamation marks and questions marks.



In Year 1 we are a team supported by Mrs Rushton, Mrs Doherty, Mrs Coulston and Miss Ritchie.  Our class motto is ‘teamwork makes a dream work!’. Year 1 is made up of wonderful superstars and I am proud to be their teacher. Wednesday afternoon will be taught by Miss Ritchie.
