Hello, we are the Owl class and we are in Year 1. Our class teacher is Miss Robins and our teaching assistants are Mrs Temple-Hill and Mrs Paul.

We are very excited to start our first topic which will be Heroes. We will incorporate many areas of the curriculum into our topic such as History, Geography, Music and Art.

Our classroom environment is full of learning opportunities that we can access through play. We explore construction, small world, investigation, maths, the message centre and our creative area every day to learn new skills and challenge ourselves. We always work with a purpose in Year 1 and persevere when trying something new. We make sure that we always try our best and finish what we set our minds to. Daily opportunities to show and tell our efforts means that we are always able to celebrate our achievements with each other.

We are very lucky to have an outdoor area in Year 1 which we share with the Pelican class. Here, we can develop our skills and imagination in the mud kitchen, look for signs of nature in our flower beds and bug hotel and act out our ideas in the deconstructed role play area.
