Year 1 2023 - 2024

Mrs Blackett

 Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1 our teacher is Mrs Blackett and we are supported by Miss Bobb. 

In Year 1 we continue our exciting, meaningful learning journey by building on all the provision and Early Learning Goals we met in Reception by starting to access the National Curriculum. We still regularly explore and enjoy the outdoors and have lots of stimulating, exciting resources to help us with our education. But, we become more structured, formal learners as we engage in a more subject based learning style. 
As well as discovering how to be the best learners, we also learn how to be the best friends, best citizens and best members of our Middleforth community.  

In English we deepen our phonics knowledge, practice our handwriting and sharpen our reading skills so that we become the best we can be. Alongside learning about classic stories, instructions, poems and recounts. 
In Maths we expand on what we know by building up our number skills, understanding 2D and 3D shapes, learning a variety of measurements and developing life skills in money and time. 
In all our topic subjects we love broadening our knowledge on the world around us and thrive in our learning environment as we do so. In Science we investigate plants, animals and seasonal change. In Computing we develop an understanding about online safety. In History we learn about the Great Fire of London and in Geography we explore the world around us. 
At Middleforth religion is important to us and in RE in Year 1 we explore the Christian faith, learning about festivals such as Harvest and Christmas, we read the story of creation and discover other faiths as part of multi-culture. 

Below is a link to our class timetable and to some important Y1 information that might be useful.
