Welcome to Rabbit Class
Welcome to Rabbit Class. We are Year 1 children (5-6 years). There are 17 children in our class and our teacher is Miss Smith. We are taught in a ‘pod’ with Hedgehog Class (Year 2) so we also work with Mrs Howey and Mrs Woodhead.
We have just moved into Key Stage 1 and are looking forward to the challenges ahead. We have the Year 1 Phonics Screening at the end of this year. To find out how to help us look at the phonics and reading section of our website.
Find out about our curriculum and long term plans in the Our Curriculum section of our website.
Welcome back! We have settled well into our new classrooms and all of the new routines in Year 1. There are lots of experiences we are facing for the first time, due to remote learning and working in pods.
These new experiences and routines include; Fantastic Fridays, Celebration Assembly, Reading Raffles, Team Points, Active 30 & Break time with the wider school, eating lunch in the school hall and being in a different part of the school building!
We are working hard and focussing on Phonics, Mathematics and English, as well as lots of other topics including RE, Music, Art & Design, Geography, Science, PE, Computing & Online Safety and PSHE.
- PE is on Tuesday.
- Homework is given out on a Friday to be returned Monday.
- Page turners (reading for pleasure) are handed out on a Friday to return Monday.
- Home readers are returned daily and changed as and when appropriate/necessary.
This term we also have some school trips planned including visits to local churches and an outreach session from Durham University called ‘Your Own backyard’ linking to our History topic ‘How has our locality changed?’
