Welcome to Year 1
Year 1 is a very busy class; we are always exploring different ideas, creating, building and performing!
We play together, share together and learn together. We are gaining confidence to try new things and develop our many talents. We visit the Ravenshead Library, practice multi skills in the hall and regularly improve our keyboard skills on the laptops. We produce creative homework with help from our parents and carers, practice our handwriting and learn to tell the time. We suggest topics to investigate and our contributions are always valued by the Year One team. We feel safe and enjoy reaching the challenges that are set for us. We love to learn in the school`s outdoor environment including playing in the treehouse and observing the seasons change in the garden and pond.

Today Foundation were very lucky to have a visit from the Fire Service. We learnt all about fire safety, looked inside a fire engine and had a go at using the hose!
The Three Little Pigs
Foundation are loving their 'Fantastic Fairytales' topic. We launched it with a dress up day and since then have been busy designing houses, retelling stories and building dens.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
As part of Trekking Tuesday and our topic "Ourselves", the Foundation Stage Unit explored outside gathering natural materials. We found lots of twigs, leaves and acorns and the children worked together to make their faces. We made sure we included our eyes, nose and mouth and some children even used...
