Welcome to Year 1. Our teacher is Mrs Marshall and we are supported in class by Mrs Bateman. We have been busy keeping fit – last half term we loved our weekly sessions of Jumping Jacks with Katie, and for the next few weeks we will be developing our skills on the balance bikes with Hannah. As part of the school theme ‘Our Place in the World’ we have been looking at where we live and our surroundings. Our ‘Author of the term’ is Julia Donaldson and we have enjoyed sharing many of her stories. This half term we are also enjoying the book Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers and we will be finding out about penguins in readiness for our KS1 production next month!
