Mr Brookfield is the teacher in class 1. Working alongside him and the children are Mrs Gilbert and Mrs Saxton. This year we are lucky to also have the teacher trainee Mrs Keightley. Leading the learning are 32 ambitious children ready to take Mr Brookfield's spot. We have a lot to learn this year and we are looking forward to what suprises and challenges year 1 brings.
We have PE on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. We are currently learning ball skills such as passing, throwing and travelling with a ball. Please bring a PE kit of shorts, t shirt and trainers.
Music is on a Monday afternoon.
On Wednesdays afternoons, Mrs Hulme will cover Mr Brookfield's planning time.
This term's topic is 'Marvellous me'. The first topic of the year is a great way for children to get to know each other, their new teacher and themselves. In science we cover parts of the body, the senses and healthy eating. We also spend a lot of time reading and writing about feelings and emotions. This term children spend time getting used to a slightly different style of learning, a bigger playground and the responsibilities towards others that come with moving to Year 1 from Foundation.
Our books this term will be:
The colour monster
Our class is a family
