Welcome to Year 1

Class Teacher: Miss Bowness

Learning Support Assistants: Mrs Woodhall and Mrs Weatherall


Hello Year 1 and welcome to our class page. I can’t believe we are over half way through Year 1 already. You are all working so hard and I am so pleased with your fantastic attitudes towards your learning. 


In Maths we are learning different methods of addition and subtraction and soon we are going to be learning about measure. In English we are working on sequencing stories, improving our writing using the correct punctuation and improving our handwriting. 


 In Geography we have learnt about Africa and the Antarctic and in our next History topic we are going to find out about some of the greatest explorers.
