Croeso! Welcome to our Year 1 class at Deri View Primary School. My name is Miss Jones and I teach the Year 1 class. We currently have 26 children in our class. We are very lucky in our class to be supported by 3 support staff, Miss Butt, Mr Copeland and Mr Jones.
This term our topic is ‘Heroes and Villains’.
We will be focusing on: people who help us, heroes’ super powers and villains in stories, including traditional tales. We will be finding out more about space and gravity (Superman), nocturnal animals (Batman), creating maps to follow directions (Hansel and Gretel), building rockets and much, much more!
We do our PE sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday and we often use our forest school area.
Our homework tasks are set on a half termly basis. We always have key words practice and our reading books are changed on a Thursday and returned to us on a Friday.
In our class we have lots of exciting areas to explore, with both indoor and outdoor space. We love practicing our fantastic writing skills in the Writing Area, building various towers and vehicles in the Construction Area, completing maths puzzles and playing number games in the Maths Area, reading lots of books under our giant leaf in our cosy book corner and using iPads for all sorts of activities. We enjoy being outside playing in the sand, riding bikes, playing in the mud kitchen.
We are very excited for the year ahead and we cannot wait to share our progress and achievements.
