Awe and Wonder Council:
Year 1 begins the children's journey into Key Stage One. We make this transition from Reception (EYFS) into Year 1 and the next stage in your child's learning easier by supporting them with lots of hands on learning through our inspiring and creative curriculum.
In Fox Class we learn in a variety of ways, with a mixture of formal, practical and play based learning. Children take part in whole class, group and independent activities throughout the day.
We provide a safe and happy environment where pupils and teachers work together, share ideas and experiences and encourage one another to be the best that they can be!
We have so many fun and exciting activities planned for Foxes this year, with our new and inspiring topics!
During our first term, we will be taking a walk around our local area and finding out lots of information in our topic Brilliant Branston!
Following our visit to Branston Park, we are going to design and make a piece of play equipment for the park that is purposeful, functional and appealing in DT. In History, we are going to become historians by finding out all about the life and work of Sir Joseph Banks, who was born not far from Branston in Horncastle!
As well as looking at the Geography of our village and creating maps, we will also be finding the UK and its four countries and capital cities on maps, atlases and globes. Through using our voices and bodies in Music we are going to create a piece of music about Brilliant Branston.
In RE we will be reading and discussing the parable, The Lost Son and finding its hidden meaning.
We will be investigating the different properties of materials, planning our own investigation and observing changes across the four seasons in Science.
In PSHE and RSHE we will be thinking about our emotions and the importance of respect.
Following the Olympics, in PE this term, we are going to be practising our athletic skills.
As a school we share the same values:
LOVE KINDNESS HONESTY FORGIVENESS PERSEVERANCE RESPECT
Our value this term is RESPECT
We are looking forward to a fantastic year of learning lots of new things, making friends and having fun! We will be sharing with you all the lovely things that happen in our Year 1 class so please keep visiting our website throughout the year to find out what we are enjoying learning about.
