Welcome to Class 1


Superworm: Amazon.co.uk: Donaldson, Julia, Scheffler, Axel: BooksWelcome to Year 1.  I am so glad to have you all in my class this year and know that you are ready to get back to school so you can learn.  I hope you have had a great Summer and been able to make some happy memories with your family.  In Year 1 this year, your teacher will be Mrs Zinna (that’s me!) and our teaching assistants are Mrs Bryce and Mrs Campbell.  We will be learning lots of new things with some lovely topics and several inspirational stories and you will be making lots of new friends.  In our classroom we have lots of activities for you to try, some new ones and some you will have enjoyed in reception, like water play, construction toys and imaginative play.  We have a super hero den and a garden centre and of course we have a lovely outdoor learning area!

Our topic this half term is a Geography focus all about ‘Our School’. 

Our story for this half term is ‘Super Worm’ by Julia Donaldson.

Please talk to me if you have something to share or if you do not understand something, or if you are ever upset, I think you’ll find I am a good listener and will always try to help.

See you in school,

Mrs Zinna

Last week we found out about 'Andy Goldsworthy' an artist who only works in the environment and uses natural resources he finds.  The Class 1 children have loved learning about this artist and looking at his art pieces.  They have been able to chose there favourite pieces and talk about it.  We have learnt about natural and man-made materials and on Friday last week we finally made our own art pieces out of natural materials we had collected during the week."
