Fowey Class – Year 1

Mrs Thomas and Mrs Orchard with Mrs Bell and Mrs Smith





What an exciting year we have in Year One as we embark on our learning with the move from Early Years! 

Linking in with our six engaging topics, we will be listening to and reading lots of stories with the help of our reading teddies and reading buddies across the school; this will then lead us on to writing our own texts.

In maths, we use lots of resources and apparatus to help us count, add and subtract, as well as learn how to use a variety of methods to solve problems.

Mrs Thomas and Mrs Orchard love to be creative and musical so plan lots of exciting music, art and DT projects to complete, as well as special enrichment or trips linked to our learning. We also have lots of opportunities to use our imagination in both our indoor and outdoor play as we include continuous provision as part of our Year One learning.

Knowledge Organisers

These provide the key knowledge we will be learning in our foundation topics this half-term.  It would be useful to look at these with you child and talk about them.  You could have mini quizzes to see what they can remember, draw parts of them, or they can create their own version.  This will help the children to ensure they remember the knowledge fully. 







On Friday 21st October, Fowey Class celebrated their learning in the Autumn first half-term with a fairy tale day. The children came to school dressed as their favourite characters. They used special glass paints and pens to decorate fairytale suncatchers, learned how to program the bee-bot on a fairy tale map and played some fairytale games and quizzes to support their vocabulary development. 

Well done fabulous Fowey!
