Hello and welcome to the Year 1 web page.

 Year 1 teachers this year are: Mrs Skinner, Mrs White, Mrs Dodd, Mrs Woodhill and Mr Jones. 

We are supported in class by Mrs Aplin, Mrs Rees and Mrs Smith. 



This term we will become ‘Geographers’. We will be exploring the question: Why is it great to live in Knowle?  

We are launching the topic with a visit from Mr Gumpy and mapping his journey along the river!

We will be learning lots of interesting new things, including:

  • Looking at different images of the local area
  • Comparing things in our local area
  • Thinking of ways our local environment could be changed
  • Learning about how we move from Bristol to other places.

In week 5, we will be holding a Global Citizenship Week where we will be finding out about culture and life in Pakistan. Unfortunately, we could not visit but we are talking to a mum who is from there and we will be finding out as much as possible. We will be also cooking during the week so if you can help your class, please talk to your class teacher. We will end the week with a 'Taste the World' celebration on the KS2 playground, where you can come and try the food from all of the places the school has been studying.

In week 6, we will be holding our annual Healthy Living Week and Sports Day will be during this week. More information to follow. Children can come into school all this week in their sports clothes and trainers.

In week 7, the children will have a chance to spend two mornings with their new class teacher before moving into Year 2.

Parents, if you have any skills or expertise to support us in making our topic exciting and enjoyable, please contact us.

It would be great if you could talk regularly at home about the topic and any extra research your child can do at home, using books or the Internet, would be wonderful.
