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 term ahead in our Class Newsletter.
Hardy's Farm 15 July
We had an amazing trip to Hardy's Animal Farm. The weather was perfect. The children spent the morning meeting the animals and the afternoon was spent exploring the play areas. The new outdoor area was a particular favourite.
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.
Class Visit to St. Peter and St.Paul Church 26 June
The children enjoyed a visit to church. Father Terry met us there and talked to the children about the history of the church.We then looked around the church and talked about the special features of the church. At the end of the visit Father Terry took the children up the bell tower (just to the first level) and the children experienced a bird's eye view of the church. Thank you Father Terry and the adults that accompanied us on our visit!

Biscuit Bear and The Gingerbread Man 8 February
We've had a fantastic time in English reading the stories of Biscuit Bear and The Gingerbread Man. Lots of our writing activities have focused on these stories especially writing instructions. But our favourite part was baking and decorating our very own Gingerbread Man.

As part of our learning about Winter we talked about how the birds may find it difficult to find food so we each made a bird feeder to take home to put in our gardens.
