Year 1

Welcome back to the start of a new school year at St. George & St. Martin Catholic Academy.  I hope everybody has had a fun-filled, safe and happy summer! I am thoroughly looking forward to teaching a new class, getting to know them and supporting them in making strides in their learning.

The children have made an excellent start to the new school year and a have returned ‘firing on all cylinders’!

YEAH for YEAR 1!

Tuesday 11th of September saw us begin our topic Journeys’, with an exciting launch day.  The children came to school dressed as children from different countries and were able to share some interesting facts about their chosen country.  The children looked great and learned a great deal from each other during the ‘Show & Tell’. A great BIG thank you to all the families for making this part of the day such a huge success.

During the launch day we stayed close to home by learning all about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This special day was filled with fun, games, food and activities.

The children have been introduced to Barnaby Bear who will be taking us on many adventures as he travels the world. Together we will find out about the countries houses, clothing, food, music, weather and more. We will compare these countries to our own.

Throughout the term the children will be hearing stories by our class author Jill Murphy and using these as a basis for writing our own stories.
