1HW - Mrs Howard's/ Mrs Walker's Class
Welcome to 1HW
Welcome to 1HW. Your teachers are Mrs Walker (M,T) and Mrs Howard (W,T,F). Mrs Walker loves teaching Phonics, Reading, PE, RSHE and creative activities, and also enjoys reading stories. Mrs Howard loves teaching Phonics, Maths, Writing, Art and Music, and also loves singing and being outside doing activities in the woods.
We are also very lucky to have lots of lovely adults working in the Year 1 area – Mrs Rice teaches in the other Year 1 class and we also have Miss Musson, Mrs Greaves, Miss Griffiths, Mrs Tryner and Mrs Mason who are the support staff working in the area on different days across the week.
At the beginning of Year 1 we operate in a similar style to Foundation with some taught sessions for Phonics, Maths, English and RE, and Continuous Provision to cover other areas of the curriculum. So, there are plenty of opportunities to learn through play as well as learning in a more formal style. As the year progresses, we move towards a more formal style to get the children ready for life in the rest of the school. Throughout the year, we also have a weekly PE session and a weekly session in our lovely woodland.
We cover some wonderful topics in Year 1 including learning out about different traditional tales, discovering more about our local area now and in the past and thinking about our place in the community, exploring life in the Arctic Circle and finding out about different living things with a focus on how we can be responsible and take care of our world. We have lots of opportunities for art, drama, design technology, music, speaking and listening, computing and RSHE within these topics.
We are all looking forward to a very exciting year with you.
