Year 1 is led by Kath Savage, Gemma Thwaites and Emily Lang, the class teachers. Miss Lang is currently on maternity leave so Lauren Aspinwall and Charlotte Fleming will be covering her maternity leave. They also have Kirsty Galloway and Kathryn Airey as teaching assistants.
We have begun our summer term learning all about Windermere Reflections and Windermere Lake. We have had a great week looking into some of the problems the lake has and what we can do to help solve them. We are really excited about our trip to Millerground, so that we can see what is going on in real life.
We are looking forward to continuing exploring our local area and the plants and nature within it. We have planted our own sunflower seeds and we are enjoying watching them grow each week. We have been inspired by Vincent Van Gogh to paint our own sunflowers too.
Later on this term we will find out about the importance of bees and how they play a vital part in the pollination process. We might even try some of the delicious honey they produce.
Lots of exciting things to look forward too.
