Year 1 Classes

Welcome to Year 1


In our class we work as a team to learn and support each other in everything we do. We are part of a great team in year 1 and our motto is to ‘believe, learn, achieve’ Miss Moss and Mrs Hutchings help us to build upon our determination, resilience and motivation to achieve all that we can. Learning in unicorn class is always fun and engaging. We love to read in our beach themed book corner and check out the ‘cool books’ of the week! We are eager to see what this year has in store for us and cannot wait to learn lots of new and exciting things!




What a wonderful start to the year we’ve had and I am really looking forward to getting to know the children better over the coming year. Tiger Class has settled quickly in to year 1 and have embraced all that I have asked of them. We always try our best to do AMAZING learning in reading, writing, maths, topic jigsaw…well we try and be AMAZING in all we do and celebrate everyone’s achievements.


We are so excited to be in Year 1 in Tiger class. We are looking forward to new learning, including our amazing topics: Dockside Discovery; Ice, Ice baby; Infinity and beyond and Come fly with me where we will learn history and geography skills which we will need as we move through Swingate.

We have a cosy, comfortable jungle themed book corner which we love to read in each day and our class mascot Snowy has been watching our wonderful reading. We look forward to sharing our bright colourful classroom with you on Family Fridays.

Year 1 is going to be a GREATTTTTT year!

What an exciting year lies ahead of us!  Everyone has settled in really well to the new routines in year 1 and have already discussed the things they would like to work on during the year and during the first term.

Our topics this year, should be lots of fun and the children will be carrying out their learning in a number of different ways.  First, we have our ‘dockside discovery’ topic and with a trip to Chatham Dockyard, we should all be suitably inspired to create some fabulous writing, as well as finding out more about our local area.  Next stop, literally, is the Polar Express!  There will be lots of Christmas themed learning in the run up to the end of this term and maybe even a special visitor.  Then we have our ‘cracking ideas’ topic where we will be investigating different inventors and inventions. In term 4, we will be going to ‘infinity and beyond’, learning about planets and some very special astronauts.  Term 5 brings us back down to earth with our topic called, ‘unique United Kingdom, where we will be learning about our country and comparing it to others.  Finally, our topic ‘come fly with me’, where we will look at some incredible events in history, including the Wright brothers.

It’s going to be a busy year, but it’s also going to be lots of fun.  We are looking forward to sharing it with you.
