Year 1 Class MC
Over the course of the year, the curriculum for Year 1 is covered through three main topics, one per term. These will include All about Me, Space and The Rainforest. The majority of work during their time in Year 1 is explored through cross-curricular projects and a range of open ended activities intended to engage, stimulate and challenge all children. Our first topic this year is 'All About Me'. This gives the children the opportunity to discover more about ourselves and to learn more about our friends.
Show and Tell is a time during the week when the children have the opportunity to either bring something special from home to show or to share some news with the rest of the class. The children really enjoy this opportunity and it helps them to organise information, builds their confidence and improves their listening skills. Show and Tell takes place every Wednesday afternoon and the children are encouraged to think of at least two things that they would like to tell the rest of the class about what they have bought in. This year classes in Year 1 and 2 will be joining together to enjoy a PE games session every Tuesday afternoon. The children will have the opportunity to learn new skills and and the rules of each game. The children will be doing sessions in sports such as rounders, netball, hockey, football and tag rugby. On a Thursday the the children will have the opportunity to do gymnastics and dance in the Victory Hall.
Every Wednesday morning our music teacher Kerry Green comes into class to give the children the opportunity to experience and develop their understanding of music through drama based themes. The class are encouraged, both collectively and individually, to act out a story.
The annual KS1 Christmas Nativity will give the children in Year 1 their second opportunity to take part in a performance involving lots of singing, dancing and drama. It is an exciting and busy part of the Autumn term and thoroughly enjoyed by all involved.
Throughout the year the children will have the opportunity to participate in a number of after school activities which range from library club to football club. The clubs are run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3.30pm- 4.45pm.
