Welcome to Year 1 Otters Class

We are a happy friendly class who love to learn.  We value good manners, being kind, sharing and always trying our best.  These are important to us here in Otters class and we have written them into our class rules.

Mrs Couch is our teacher and Mrs Mugosa is our teaching assistant. We have had lots of fun this year learning both in the classroom and remotely.  

Our day begins with a fun phonics session, followed by maths and English.  After lunch we start our foundation work and the day ends with storytime and our class prayer.

Some things we usually have to look forward to in Year 1 include a trip to the Gunnersbury museum to explore historical toys in Autumn and a summer adventure around Kew Gardens in July. 

We will be jumping further into the KS1 curriculum as we enter the new term after Easter. We are very excited to be learning about traditional tales such as Cinderella and The Enormous Turnip in English, plants and natural growth in science and creating sculptures using natural materials in art, just like Andy Goldsworthy!  In PE we are going to be training in Athletics which we are looking forward to as we really enjoy our daily mile.

We will also be learning all about ourselves as children of God by exploring the religious beliefs of others and making links between Buddhism and Christianity.

Please see our knowledge organisers in the parent portal for more information on the curriculum.
