Welcome to Year 1

Who are we?

We are 5 and 6 year old pupils in the first class of Key Stage 1.

During Year 1 we continue to build on and develop independent learning skills from Early Years.  We continue with practical activities and work hard to adapt to the pace of more written work in our books. 

Who teaches us?

Miss Day is our class teacher and Mrs Cooper is the teaching assistant for our class.

What do we do?

At Coquet Park First School we plan a ‘creative curriculum’ to meet the National Curriculum (2014) objectives, across all subjects, through topics.  Every opportunity is taken to use the outdoor environment to support our learning. 

In Year 1 we have three friends who choose which children to go home with for the weekend.  Our three friends are Boris the Bear, Freddie the Flamingo and Yolanda the Unicorn. Boris is always looking for brilliant behaviour, Freddie keeps his eyes peeled for kind friends  and Yolanda is on the lookout for somebody who uses their initiative and does something extra special. The children then share their news from the weekend with the rest of the class. 

Reading books are collected on a Monday and Friday and returned the same day.  Spellings are tested on a Tuesday and given out on a Wednesday.  Homework is given on a Friday to be returned on Wednesday.  There will also be some homework projects throughout the year.  

Our PE day is Thursday and we go swimming in the Summer Term.  

We had a great time doing practical maths activities.

We had lots of fun in our gymnastics session.

We love sharing our 'changes' show and tell with the rest of the class.
