Y1 Welcome

Welcome to the Florence Nightingale class! 


We are always very busy in Y1, as we have lots of fun and exciting learning to squeeze in! In the morning, we take part in our daily English and Maths lesson and also complete daily Phonics sessions. We even have a special phonic fairy who leaves us a new magical book nearly every single day! We also have a very naughty Tricky Troll in our classroom who helps us learn our tricky words. He thinks we are far too clever in Y1! 


 In the afternoons we have various creative activities such as; History, Geography, PE, Dance, Music, Religious Education, PSHE and ICT.

This Spring term, our geography topic has been space! We have been reading our book, 'Beegu'. Beegu our alien, has flown into Mansfield! We have been teaching Beegu all about Planet Earth and our town, Mansfield.

In our English lessons, we even created our own 'Welcome To Mansfield Guide'.


During our morning play, the children can enjoy a healthy snack from home. However, we still provide free fruit that they can have in the afternoon. The children can bring a clear water bottle with water inside to drink during the day.


On Tuesdays, we have our dance and gymnastics lessons. The children will need their indoor P.E kit for this day. On Wednesdays, the children come to school in their own warm PE clothes. This should include a white top, and a dark jumper/hoodie.


It is a huge help for us if reading books and diaries are in school every day. The children will change their book every week. The children will read once a week with Miss Mee, this includes choosing a suitable new book and having a book introduction, followed by a 1:1 learning to read opportunity. The children also read with Mrs Nicholson in an afternoon. We encourage the children to keep reading the same book at home to develop their fluency and phonetic awareness.


We are very proud of all our children in Y1. Keep on being superstars!  smiley
