Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Our teaching team consists of  Mrs van Spelde / Mrs Austin and Mrs Clifford (Class Teachers), Miss Tetley and Mrs Coates (Teaching Assistants) and Mr Armstrong (School Direct Trainee Teacher).

Please keep a close eye on our year groups Twitter Feed for updates on what we’re learning in class including photos and achievements as well as reminders about things like school visits.

Autumn Term – Against all odds…

Our Autumn term theme is ‘Against all odds…’ where we will be looking at facing new challenges, developing resilience and exploring differences and similarities that we all share.  We will be using our inspirational text to explore and develop our understanding of these aspects we face as we enter a new chapter in our learning journey at Gorsey Bank.
This will give us fantastic opportunities to develop cross curricular links with other subject areas in particular Maths where we will be developing our number skills using natural resources to help with our counting; English through exploring the story of Stickman’s journey, Science where we will explore Materials and Art through appreciating the artist Klimt.
Year 1 Information

This year we will visit the school library on a Tuesday morning – please remember to have your library book on this day.  We are timetabled to have PE every Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day as plans may change!  School reading books will be changed weekly during our guided reading sessions.

Remember you can see our day to day learning adventures by following us on Twitter @GorseyY1.
