Croeso i Blwyddyn 1.
Welcome to Year 1.
The year 1 teachers this year are Mrs McCrann and Miss Binstead, and our teaching assistants are Mrs West and Mrs Stimpson.
We are really excited to be learning all about DINOSAURS in our topic called 'Dinosaur Planet'. We have already been on a 'dino hunt' outside where we found evidence of dinosaurs- fossils and bones, and even some GIANT dinosaur eggs!!
Further details of our planned learning activities can be found below in our topic overview and medium term planner.

We are looking forward to our journey into space and discovering amazing facts about planets and the universe. Have a look at our medium term planner below for more details.
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda Pawb!
Happy New Year Everyone!
Our new topic is 'PAWS, CLAWS AND WHISKERS'- you've guessed it- we are going to be learning all about animals this term.
We'll be finding out about similarities and differences between animals- looking at their size, patterns and colouring, as well as finding our how to look after them. We'll learn to write about this in booklets and leaflets. We have our very own 'vets surgery' in the role play area where we will be developing our oracy and co-operation skills.
We'll be listening to some traditional tales about animals and re-telling them in our own words with our own illustrations. Year 1 is going to be such an exciting place to learn this term- keep checking our class page for latest news and photographs of our 'learning journey'.
