Class 1 – Kelham

Hello!

Welcome to Kelham Class. Year One are extremely lucky as we have two teachers for the price of one! The teaching team for this year are Mrs Chase (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Scrivener (Thursday-Friday). Both of whom are always equipped with a smile on their face and words of praise and encouragement to help the children maintain a positive attitude – an essential to promote effective learning.

In our class we encourage enquiry based learning. Children will immerse themselves in hands on activities, learning through play to develop an enjoyment of learning, to encourage children to ask questions and equip them with the skills to become a critical thinker.

We always encourage a growth mindset, incorporating sufficient challenge in our learning. Mistakes are celebrated and learnt from – these are essential in learning and making connections.

We have so many fun and exciting learning activities planned for this year and we can’t wait to share them all with you. We will begin the Autumn term by celebrating our heroes with the topic ‘Who are our heroes?’ Get ready to investigate all our different, real life heroes and hopefully meet some as well!

In Spring we will look at ‘Traditional Tales’, where we will incorporate lots of outdoor learning to find out more about the environment around us.

In Summer we will sail ‘Around the World’, learning about different countries and cultures along the way.

We are so excited to have you all in our classroom this year, we are going to have a great time learning, exploring and making lots of special memories.
