In Year one, this year we have Mrs Bailey, Mrs Wall, Mrs Simpson, Mrs Johnson, Miss Butterworth, Mrs Lloyd and Miss Pearce
In year 1, we believe that each and every one of us are extraordinary and special in our own way. We value each other and aim to nurture your child’s imagination and enthusiasm through the exciting and meaningful curriculum that we will offer. In the Autumn term we will jump into our new school year with our topic 'Wonderful Weather' and a visit to Wombwell Cemetery. We will take a closer look at our local environment and observing the signs of Autumn.
We will continue to watch the everchanging weather whilst progressing with our learning about significant events through the year and important people from the past in our second topic 'My Timeline' here we will learn about the passing of time and sequencing events in our own life. We will also begin to look into the Geography of the UK. As we say goodbye to 2022 and open the mysterious door to 2023, we will continue our learning journey in to the fictional world of the 'Three little pigs'. Why was the wolf so nasty? Why did the pigs homes easily collapse? What can we do to sort these problems out? We will uncover the answers with ‘Sticks and Stones and Funny Homes’. We then take our learning on a journey into the past, to find out about how life was a long time ago for our families. We then begin to wonder, What life would be like on another planet? Only Neil Armstrong and Helen Sharman would know! In our topic 'Awesome Astronauts' we will dig deeper into the world of ‘Ever changing Technology’ to help us investigate. As Spring ends and Summer approaches, we will steer our learning towards ‘High View Cares’ and the wonders our planet has to offer. We will look at our topic 'Grow Grow Grow' taking a visit to the Old Moor Wetlands Centre to learn all about the many plants and mini beasts that help to make our world a beautiful place to be. To end our Summer term we will focus our curiosity on the ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’ on our planet and what makes these extraordinary, just like us!
We will use some exciting hooks into our topics throughout the year, through books and adventures, visitors and artifacts. If you have something to share with us, that would bring meaning to our learning, feel free to let us know. This is OUR curriculum in Year 1, and we welcome everyone’s involvement to guide our learning in meaningful and exciting ways. Ready…Set… Go Year 1.
