Year 1 2017 - 2018

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. She enjoys lots of retail therapy, travelling to sunny destinations and reading. The wonderful Miss Porter is the teaching assistant working alongside Miss Cork. 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. 

This year, Year 1 will be embarking on lots of exciting adventures through creative topics. Our first adventure is a whole school one. Each class has chosen to embark on a city which will lead to a multi sensory experience to showcase the written and creative work of the children across all year groups.

Grab your suitcases and passports... Year 1 are travelling to Cape Town! We will be using the beautiful 'Greedy Zebra' story written by Mwenye Hadithi as a stimulus for our work. As part of our topic, Y1 need as many cardboard boxes (big and small), cardboard tubes (big and small) as possible and anything else perfect for junk modelling. Please keep bringing them into school. Thank you. Download the topic web below to find out more...!

We will also be looking at specific Rights of the Child which link to our topic: 

Article 27 (Adaquete standard of living): You have the right to food, clothing, a safe place to live and to have your basic needs met. You should not be disadvantaged so that you can't do many of the things other kids can do.

PE is on Monday and Tuesday so please ensure your child has their kit in school.

I am sure we will have a wonderful and exciting year!
