Welcome to Year One.
I am the class teacher, Mrs Cowley, and have worked at Welford for over 16 years (in various year groups). In Year One we have a full time teaching assistant called Miss Wilkins. We plan our work around central topics, these rotate on a two year cycle. This year our topics are 'Fire! Fire! Fire! ; 'What is it like where we live?' And 'The Galapagos Islands'. As well as table based learning the children also have opportunities to access the making area, craft resources, construction, listening centre and many other resources linked to the current learning focuses in the classroom. In order to keep our bodies and minds healthy we have regular fitness breaks and gradually progress through the year to participate in our 1K a day challenge (running or walking laps of the school field). Parents can communicate with me via the class dojo system, reading record books and of course in person at the end of the school day.
