Welcome to Year 1
We chose 'Attenborough' as our class name because in year one we learn about the world we live in, seasonal change, all about animals and how God gave us the world to look after.
Sir David Attenborough tries to help people understand how to save the world and the animals on it.
Welcome to term 1 of year 1. It is wonderful to see you all back after the summer holidays and the year 1 team is very much looking forward to working with you and your child (ren) this year.
The team this year will be Mrs Brooker (Mon, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday), Mrs Harris (Tuesday all day and Wednesday morning) and Mrs Loosley (Monday to Friday).
There may be occasions where Mrs Brooker and Mrs Harris need to swap days but this will only be when absolutely necessary and not a common occurrence. Where possible routines will be kept.
There will be ‘Meet the teacher’ Information sent out shortly, information to follow, so that we can explain the new routines. As soon as we are able to open the school up wider (Covid 19 permitting) we look forward to welcoming you so that you can see the children’s classroom for yourself.
Year 1 is a busy year and the children will be transitioning from the Early Years Foundation Stage into Year 1 of the National Curriculum. In the first few weeks we will have a daily routine that will be very similar to the one the children had in Miss King’s class and this should ensure that they are able to settle quickly into the year.
We will be learning through a range of subjects and these will be linked together in a topic called ‘Dinosaur Roar’. The main books we will be using are pictured above.

P.E this term will take place on Tuesday and Thursday. It is important that children have their PE kit and jumper (named) in school. PE Kits will be sent home every holiday for washing and so that you can check that plimsolls still fit etc. Please avoid wearing earrings on PE days. If your child still struggles with dressing or undressing, please could they practise this at home? We need to minimise our physical contact with the children as much as possible. Dressing themselves is definitely a way to improve your child’s independence and ensure this happens in these challenging times
DT Day is on Friday 16th October 2020.
