In Year 1 you will find 23 enthusiastic, kind, smiling, hard working superheroes!
Our teacher this year is Mrs Marshall. Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Taylor and Mrs Bridge. In our class you will also meet Mrs Wright every Wednesday afternoon.
We are developing a Growth mindset and our motto this year is ''We believe'. We are not afraid to make mistakes as we know we can learn from them. We believe anything is possible and in Cellos class we are all Superhero learners.
We always start our busy day with a English and Maths morning challenge to get ourselves ready for learning, our Fluent in 5 questions.
We appreciate all the support from parents and grandparents who help us practice our spellings and hear us read so we can become even cleverer!
Our PE lessons are on a Wednesday and we have swimming lessons on a Friday morning.

We have enjoyed an informative week learning about World War 1 and World War 2 and the importance of wearing poppies to remember the soldiers. The children came to school in fantastic evacuee costumes and showed great empathy for what it must have been like for the children in WW2. The children also learnt about VE Day, enjoying their own street party. We had brilliant writing as a result of remembrance week along with great role playing. The children re-enacted being evacuated and pretended to be Winston Churchill giving the end of war speech that they wrote themselves.
We all enjoyed our Countryfile Ramble to Carr Lane woods with our families. We were raising sponsor money for Children in Need. We also enjoyed hunting for acorns and leaves. We hid a book in the woods for the children of Tarleton to find as part of ‘Look for a book’. It was a fun and muddy afternoon!
For our Hello Yellow day we discussed our emotions and feelings, so we can recognise if we have good feelings or bad feelings. We know we need to talk to a trusted adult if we are feeling sad. We talked about what makes us feel happy and what we like about ourselves. We listened to a story called ‘My Strong Mind’, where the girl in the story realised that you have to tackle difficult situations using a strong mind and a positive attitude. We began making our Well-being advent calendar. We finished with some calming and relaxing breathing exercises and some fun Yoga positions.
We really enjoyed our Science day. The whole class looked fantastic dressed up in their Sciente costumes. We enjoyed making bubble snakes and blowing bubbles. During the day we enjoyed lots of experiments.
We enjoyed a team hula hoop challenge as part of our PSHE work in our first week in Year 1. We had to hold hands in a circle and pass the hoop around without letting go of our hands. We showed great team work, determination and patience. We were so good we even managed 2 hoops being passed around at the same time!
In Maths we are learning all about Place Value. We are having lots of fun and learning lots.
