Year 1: Goldsworthy Class

Andy Goldsworthy, OBE is a British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist producing site-specific sculpture and land art situated in natural and urban settings. He lives and works in Scotland

In Year 1 children develop their writing skills, have guided reading and phonics lessons daily as well as consolidating and progressing their learning in maths through number, shape, data handling and problem solving. They enjoy a broad curriculum with plenty of opportunity for hands on exploration and learning through play, especially in the first term. 

Reading books go home every afternoon and are brought to school every morning. We encourage the children to read every night and practice their weekly sight words. To support maths you could help your child count to 20, 50 and 100 forwards and backwards.

Please look at our school blog as the class teacher, Ms Dickman, will post news of what we have been up to on a regular basis.

Reminders:

  •  P.E. lessons are on Mondays. Please ensure your child wears trainers on a Monday.
  • Please return books every morning in book bags.
