Welcome to Year 1!
In Year 1, Mrs Morgan and Miss Watkins are the class teachers, Miss Kershaw and Miss Ahmed are the teaching assistants. From time to time, we also have students on placements from local colleges.
Year 1 is an exciting year in school. We introduce children to the range of subjects in the National Curriculum and start to work in a more structured way...but still have lots of fun!
Wherever possible, we incorporate creativity into our teaching and learning through the topics that we cover and the different subject areas within the classroom. We are developing an outdoor area where we can continue our learning in the fresh air. Each year, Year 1 children walk to the woods to look at seasonal changes, perform a Nativity play and in the Summer term, we have a weekly Running Club.
As well as helping children to achieve their potential academically, we aim to help all of our children develop their personal and social skills, particularly their confidence and self esteem.
At the end of the year, we are always very proud to send children up to Year 2 with a positive attitude to learning that will hopefully stay with them throughout their time at Feniscowles.
