Busy Bees

What a year so far!

You are doing so well in Year 1, every day you make me and Miss Owen very proud.

You have made so much progress this year, every day you come in with a smile on your faces and do your very best.

We have really enjoyed our topics so far. First we learnt about ourselves in 'Who am I? Where do I live?'. After Christmas we learnt about 'Where the Wild Things Are', we had great fun looking at explorers and where they visited. We all learnt so much when learning about Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake!

Thank you so much for your holiday projects about space, they are displayed in the hall and look fabulous!

Our topic in our last term is 'Can we travel back in time?'

We are learning about the dinosaurs and will be looking back at important events in our history, including Rugeley history where we will be learning about the miners.


In year 1 we have made some class rules, they are:

Bee friendly

Bee tidy

Bee good listeners

Bee cooperative

Bee the best we can bee

We will also be learning to play the recorder this term, I am very excited about this! We will have our lessons on a Friday and children will start taking their recorders home to practice.
