Welcome to Year 1!
Class Teachers: Mrs Irwin, Miss Hubbard, Miss Hall, Mrs Dewar
Year 1 is a very exciting time for children and we make it even more exciting by organising special events throughout the year.
At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these 'Southey's Super Six.' These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have had previously.
Take a look at our topics for this coming year. We intend to teach the children a wide range of skills alongside an array of knowledge for each unit. There may be slight changes throughout the year depending on weather, availability and other opportunities that arise.
Our Learning In Year One
We have really enjoyed our science learning and have been investigating floating and sinking. We used our observation skills to find out which object float or sink. It was exciting to see if they stayed on the top of the water or if they sank to the bottom. We were able to use this learning to help us to sort objects into float or sink. We have been using scientific vocabulary such as observe, identify and classify.
Design and Technology - Cheesecakes
Wow! What delicious cheesecakes we made in Year 1! In design and technology we tasted different fruits to choose our topping for the cheesecakes. We know the importance of hygiene before cooking and eating. We made sure we thoroughly washed our hands and all the equipment was cleaned afterwards. We carefully mixed the ingredients and followed a recipe. We evaluated our scrumptious cheesecakes. Some of us really liked the cheesecakes and are excited to make them at home with our families.
