The Year 1 Team

The teachers in Year 1 are Ms Andrews (Year Lead), Ms Milburn and Ms Shipsey. We are supported by Ms Mensa, Mrs McEwen, Ms A, Ms S, Ms Harris ( Friday only), Mrs Ahmed and Mrs Patel.

What we are learning this term

In English, we will read several books, including ‘The Robot and the Bluebird’ by David Lucas. We will be discussing robots and their functions.

In Reciprocal reading we will be reading and discussing Jeannie Baker Where the Forest Meets the Sea.  This will be linked to respecting children's rights and how man disrespects the world. We will focus on article 24, ‘Children have the right to the best possible health. They have the right to good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and clean environment.’ 

This half term Year 1 will be learning addition and subtraction. Children have been taught how to use a tens frame and number line when adding and subtracting. We will use our number facts to help us answer the number problems. Below are a few examples taken from Maths lessons as well as an example of number facts.
