Class 1

Welcome to our Class 1 page!

Hello! Welcome to Class 1. I hope you are ready for a fun and busy Year 1! We can’t wait to meet you!

Meet your Teachers

Hello! My name is Miss Hollingworth and I am the Class 1 teacher.

I enjoy listening to music and going to different concerts and festivals. I also enjoy going on long walks to find and explore new and exciting places. I cannot wait to meet you all in September and I am looking forward to welcoming you into Year 1.

I have two children – Imogen who is nearly 10 and Mia who is 8.

In my free time I like to watch ice hockey and love to watch the Sheffield Steelers at the Sheffield Arena. I love to read but my favourite pass-time is visiting family and friends. I cannot wait to meet you in September.

Our New Learning

In summer term, our topic is Enchanted Woodland. In Geography, we are going to be exploring our school grounds very carefully and looking at the natural and man-made features. I wonder what we will see? Back in the classroom we will be learning about maps and creating our own.

In science, we will be going back outside to look at the different plants we have around our school. We will be even planting some of our own and learning what plants need to grow so we can look after ours very carefully.

We will also be looking at the animals we can find at our school and in DT we will be making our own recyclable bird feeders.

In art, we will be looking at how we can create natural art just like Andy Goldsworthy.

Remember to bring sensible clothing and shoes as we will be outside a lot!

Class Information

We recommend bringing your PE kit on a Monday and leaving it at school for the whole week. We will remind you to take it home on Fridays too! We try to get changed on our own in Year 1 and we will have a shorter time to get ourselves ready too! During Year 1, we will try to become more independent and grown-up. That means doing lots of things that the older children do too. Most days, we will attend an assembly with the rest of the school. We have to get ready pretty quick in the mornings for this! We will have lunch at 12 with the rest of the school and then go and play with Year 2. Sometimes, we will play with the rest of the school as well!
