Welcome to Skylarks class.
Our class teacher is Mrs Chapman but we are also taught by Ms Christan on a Wednesday.
We have a PE session on a Monday afternoon and this is taught by Mr Wiffen.
A brief look at a day in Year 1:
Each morning we come into class and settle with a reading book whilst also making our lunch choice for the day. We start the day by doing ‘Star of the day’ which enables us to think of compliments we can give each other. We are following a PSHE scheme called PATHS along with a programme called Motional which enables us to do fun activities to help us develop socially and emotionally.
Each morning we have SFA sessions where we learn new letter sounds and digraphs and then apply these to our reading. We carry out daily writing activities linked to a star story for the week.
Every day before lunch we have a Maths session which is based on the Maths Mastery scheme of work.
After lunch we have a short study input linked to one of the following subjects.
This terms Study lessons are:
Science - Animals including humans and Plants
History - Lives of significant individuals: Mary Anning and David Attenborough
Computing - Algorithms and Digital imagery
Geography - UK and Continents
Design and Technology - Food technology and Textiles
Art - Sculpture and Collage
Each day ends with a story or language activity and sometimes singing which we always enjoy.
