Year 1 Mrs Townson
Hello, my name is Mrs Townson and I am the Year One Class Teacher.
Mrs Middlehurst works in Year 1 with me and you will see her on the door most mornings as you drop your children off.
On Monday Year One is taught by Mrs Finnigan.
We have PE on Wednesday afternoon. Please send your child to school in their PE kit and school jumper.
Please remove any earrings - earrings in general should be studs not hoops and removed on Wednesday for PE. Children can also bring an extra layer e.g. a blue / black hoodie as they may be having PE outside.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to ask me before or after school.
We are off to a busy start in Year 1!
In Geography we will learn more about where we live in the world and our local area.
In Science we will learn all about plants - we will name parts of plants and common flowers and trees that grow locally. The children will explore the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees.
We will make a fruit smoothie in Design Technology.
The children will examine what God means to Christians in RE with Mrs Finnigan on Monday afternoons and take part in music sessions together.
PSHE will focus on our relationships with each other.
This half term in English we will work with the Talk for Write process and then move on to Stories by the same author - looking at Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers and writing a Non-Chronological Report about the places we are learning about in Geography.
Ask your child to retell you the story we are learning in class - they even have actions too!
In Maths we will focus on numbers up to and beyond 20 and addition and subtraction.
