Goals for the Year

In Rabbits we are bursting with enthusiasm about our learning. We spend our days learning through fun, creative and inspiring activities. We always strive for excellence and embrace any challenge that we are faced with a smile on our faces. The inspiring and engaging curriculum along with the class environment, help us to develop as members of the school community and make sense of the world around us. Our Christian values and classroom rules are rooted in everything we do and learn.

Curriculum Statement

In Year One we develop our reading, writing and mathematics skills in all Curriculum areas. In English we cover different styles of texts which include fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We spend time writing character descriptions and letting our imagination flourish from stories such as The Day The Crayon Quit, Little Red Riding Hood and The Enormous Turnip. We follow a mastery curriculum for maths, with our lessons following a six-part structure, including a talk task. We use ‘star words’ in every lesson and enjoy putting actions to these to help us remember and understand them. In history, we study Childhood: Then and now, Queens and Kings and Homes of the past. Our science topics explore classification of animals including humans and experimenting with the use of different materials. In geography we investigate Isleworth, weather patterns and in Art we explore the work of Andy Goldsworthy. In RE, we are studying Judaism (including meeting a lovely Jewish visitor), exploring the meaning of Easter and in Computing we will continue to follow our Switched On Computing scheme. In PE we have the opportunity to work with professionals from Duke Meadow and Sports Impact. In PSHE, we will focus on our dreams and goals and what being healthy is. We will be thinking about how we can develop a positive growth mindset and how we can grow together. We focus on the importance of our well being and thinking about our emotions in different situations. Our Zones of Regulation, Worry Monster and Calming Zone enables us to acknowledge our feelings each day. We like to also celebrate and spread happiness in the class via our feelings table and circle time. Please have a look on the Parent Portal for more details in the Knowledge Organisers.
