Year 1

In Year 1 we build on similar experiences that the Early Years Team create by learning through stimulating and creative play. We teach Phonics, English and Maths every morning. We link learning to ‘Mantle of the Expert’ and make learning purposeful and practical. Each week children participate in ‘outdoor learning’. The children explore the outside area and complete a range of activities including making a bug hotel, planting and watering, mud painting and making a wormery.


Take a look inside our classroom:





This term Year 1 received a letter from The Jolly Postman. He wanted to find out all about Bury St Edmunds as he has never visited here before. The children were very excited to find out lots of information all about their local area for him.Take a look at us gathering all of our information for The Jolly Postman.

                                                We gave instructions to Beebots to guide them around our maps of Bury St Edmunds. 



    We wrote sentences about the best things that we have received in the post.   




       We went hunting for shapes around the school and explored all the different ones.

We then created our own shape pictures using the shapes we had spotted.
