Welcome To Year One Meeting

Year 1


1VL: Mrs Cheshire (Monday-Tuesday class teacher), Mrs Kitchener (Wednesday-Friday class teacher), Mrs Stirland and Miss Chambers (teaching assistants).
1MB/AT: Mrs Biston (Monday-Wednesday class teacher), Mrs Thorley (Thursday-Friday class teacher) Mrs Wilson and Mrs Scothern (teaching assistants). 
Miss Lilliman and Mr Jenkins are based across both classes as support throughout the week. 


PE will be on a Monday. Children will stay in their PE kit for the whole day. They will not need their usual school uniform for this day.


Children work better if they are well hydrated!  Please could you make sure that your child brings a labelled water bottle to school every day, filled only with water. We would also like to remind you that children should keep toys at home to prevent any upset caused by these things being misplaced.


We have moved away from Continuous Provision now and the children are now learning during daily lessons where they sit at their own tables and have teacher taught sessions. 


Hopefully you should all now be connected to Class Dojo. This is used to communicate with you about your child’s achievements and to pass messages on. We will only reply to messages during working hours.


Please let us know if you have any issues or concerns – we will always offer a listening ear.  It is best to catch us at the end of the school day or leave a message at the office and we will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a more suitable time to talk things through.




Summer Term Topic

Food Glorious Food!




During the Summer Term, the children will be learning through various subjects about our topic Food,
Glorious Food. 

In science we will be learning about different plants, including garden plants, wild plants and naming the different parts of a plant. There will be a fun quiz at the end of our science unit to showcase all of our new learning!

In geography we will be finding out about Kenya and the farming that takes place there. We will compare this to Mansfield. 

In art we will be studying the artist Van Gogh. His sunflowers are simply beautiful!

We will be researching healthy foods in design and technology and finding out what delicious dishes we can make with them.
Plus many, many more things to cover!!
