Year 1 Adventurers


Welcome to the Adventurers' class - a group of Year 1 pupils. We have made the transition to a more formal method of teaching and learning but still enjoy a range of play based experiences when we can. We are developing into independent learners who are willing to have a go.


The Adventurers are taught by Mrs Wood and Mrs Blount, Miss Coates is a degree student who works with us on a Thursday and Friday.   

Mrs Heath covers the class for two afternoons a week when Mrs Wood is doing planning, preparation and Early Years leadership work.

We enjoyed a Remembrance Enrichment Day on Friday 9th November.  Completing a range of different World War 1 activities in other classes with other teachers: 

Baking Anzac biscuits with Mrs Wood in the Eco lab

Singing WW1 songs with Mrs Cooper in Year 2

Designing  propaganda posters with Mr Brown in Year 3

Then after lunch we did some map work with Mr Marshall in Year 4 and finally some artwork with Mrs L'Strange in Year 5.

Mrs Blount took some photos.

We all took part in our Remembrance Service at 11am and laid our poppies under the flag pole at the front of the school. We also  laid a purple poppy wreath, which we had made, to remember all the Amazing Animals who gave their life during the first World War.
