Hop…hop…hop into Rabbits class!
Miss Watkins is our teacher and Mrs Harrison is our teaching assistant with Rita the Rabbit as our class mascot. This year we have jumped into KS1 bursting with enthusiasm, both at school and via Google Classroom. We start our day with a bit of phonics, followed by maths and English. After lunch we begin our foundation learning. We then participate in whole school worship and read a story together before hometime.
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. As well as this, in Rabbits class we value manners and kindness and are all keen gardeners, we especially enjoy working together to look after our class orchid, Mable.
We will be ‘burrowing’ 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!
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.
It is going to be a ‘hare-raising’ year in Rabbits class indeed!
