St George's CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1, Miss Nash is the teacher and Miss Brannan is the teaching assistant.

PE is on a Tuesday and a Friday so please make sure your child has both indoor and outdoor PE kits in school by Monday each week. They will then bring them home every Friday to be washed.

Also, please ensure your child has a water bottle in school everyday.

For the first term in Year 1, children will be accessing Continuous Provision which refers to the resources and areas laid out in the classroom to provoke learning through play and exploration. During Continuous Provision, an adult (teacher or TA) enters into the areas to work alongside the children and further their learning. The children are encouraged and taught to develop transferable skills. For example, they might use their writing skills in the construction area to write a sentence about their creation or they might use their maths skills to count out how many items of food they need to feed everyone in the role play area. Alongside this, children will also be called to work in a group guided by an adult to work on specific learning (e.g writing, reading, maths, topic work).

Below are some pictures of our classroom which includes a small group area, calm area, writing area, maths area, funky fingers area, small world area, role play area, creative area and an outdoor area (which includes sand area, water area and mud kitchen).

In the event of a school closure or a local lockdown, please follow this link to our home learning page which has some useful links to some websites.

Please see below for our Long Term Plan which shows our learning for the year.
