Year 1 2019 - 2020

Miss Cork

Welcome to Year 1!


"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are hidden in the most unlikely places." - Roald Dahl


Miss Cork is the Year 1 teacher. The wonderful Miss Porter is the teaching assistant working alongside Miss Cork. Miss Morris, an Associate Teacher from the Universtiy of Chester, will also be joining us for the summer term. Whilst we are looking forward to having fun with our class we also have high expectations of you and want you to do your very best at all times. 

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners. 

Our whole school topic for the summer term is based around the book 'What to do with an idea?' by Kobi Yomanda. This text is going to inspire Year 1 to 'Reach for the Stars'. We will be focusing our learning on the idea of space travel. How did it happen? Who was the first? You can download our curriculum map for more information. Our curriculum maps are working documents which are adapted and added to as the children's interests, ideas and questions develop. 

Please continue to bring boxes, tubes, bottles, yoghurt pots etc into school for junk modelling.

Thank you,

Miss Cork
