Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 Walnut Class! Thank you for visiting our class page. The Year 1 teachers are Mrs Rea (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Brooks (Thursday and Friday). They are supported by Mrs Ingham, Mr Van Der Leeuw and Mr Summers. The children are settling in well and are enjoying our This Is Me topic.

(Year 1 Autumn Term Topic web 2018 THIS IS ME)

Our hospital role play is open for business (thank you for your donations) and the children are busy diagnosing conditions, writing prescriptions and planning surgery.

WANTED: SECRET READERS! The children are loving our visits from secret readers on Wednesday afternoons. Please let me know if you’d like to take part. All we need is three clues about yourself, your child’s favourite story book and your best reading voice. We have had some wonderfully expressive readers so far and the children have been engrossed. Just keep it under your hat!
