Welcome to Year 1
On this page we will be sharing some of the fantastic things we do in class. You can find out about the learning we have planned for the weeks ahead in our Class Newsletter.
Science Investigate 17 November
The children have been testing and measuring the absorbency of different materials. We found the cotton wool was the most absorbent of the five materials we tested.
I’m the Year 1 teacher and I have been teaching at Burgh School for 15 years. I have taught Year 1 for two years and before that I taught Foundation Stage. I have good knowledge of the EYFS and this helps me to understand the learning needs of our younger children as they move to Year 1.
I try to be an encouraging and helpful teacher and do my best to make lessons in Year 1 fun!
Out of school I love exciting days out with my own son and spending time exploring new places in my caravan.
Autumn 10 November
This week the children have continued to think about the season of Autumn. They have sorted Autumn leaves according to their own criteria and planted flower bulbs around school.
History Trip 19 October
The children experienced an extremely worthwhile trip to The Village Museum in Skegness. They washed clothes using the dolly tub, dolly peg, scrubbing board and mangle. All groups had a guided tour of the two olden days houses and they helped the blacksmith to make a horseshoe. They experienced what school was like in the Victorian days and some of the children got to have a go on the working steam engine. The children’s behaviour was outstanding and everyone had a very enjoyable day.
Collecting leaves in preparation for our Autumn collages 12 October
Caribbean Fruit Salad 5 October
After reading the stories of Handa’s Surprise and Kakadu Jack (which featured lots of tropical fruits) we went onto make Caribbean Fruit Salad. The children practised using their claw and bridge cuts but particularly enjoyed tasting it!
Sorting and grouping animals in Science 2 October
Fun in PE! 15 September
Counting and Writing Numbers 8 September
