My name is Mrs Millington and I teach Year 1. Working alongside me is Mrs Eadie who is a teaching assistant with a love for music.
We are so excited to welcome the children to their new class this Autumn term and hope they are looking forward to their learning.
During our first half-term our topic will be ‘Memory Box’ where we will be looking at changes within living memory. We will be investigating how toys have changed over time and would love for parents and grandparents to get involved and share their childhood memories! In Science we will be investigating Seasonal Changes, with a focus on Autumn. We will then be exploring different materials and carrying out an experiment. In Art we will be drawing portraits – we can’t wait for you to see our work on display! In Computing we will be learning how to use the different features of a laptop. RE will be a focus on the Harvest festival with links to our Church service. In outdoor and indoor PE, we will be practising our ball skills as well as our balancing skills. We will be learning French for the first time, starting with greetings and moving on to colours and numbers. We will be exploring different stories in English and investigating numbers in Maths. We will continue with our work on Global learning as well as developing our Philosophy for Children lessons.
Please check your emails for future key dates such as Greet the Teacher and Parents’ Evening.

Today the children in Year 1 enjoyed learning about toys from the past. Thank you to all the mums, aunties, cousins, grandmas and friends who shared their special memories! Thank you also to those parents who sent in their childhood toys.

Year 1 explored ways to help with the Sustainable Development Goal ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’. A forest ranger joined the class for the morning and explained how our rubbish gets recycled. We learnt that plastic can be made into a fleece and cardboard gets turned into newspapers! We really enjoyed using rubbish that would usually be thrown away to make parachutes and beautiful butterflies.

Today Year 1 learnt all about the Jewish festival of Sukkot. We made felt torahs and wrote messages from God inside. We worked in pairs to make sukkahs and then we made decorations to go inside such as 3D fruit and paper chains. We loved making Jewish honey biscuits with Mrs Eadie and we made Happy Sukkot cards for our buddies to tell them everything we have learnt!
