Welcome to the new academic year in Y1 at Forefield Community Infant & Nursery School. We are very much looking forward to sharing an exciting year with your children with many super activities and topics planned. We also look forward to working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the very best possible for your child.
By way of introduction, our Y1 team consists of Mrs Gilroy and Mrs Byrne who teach in Class 6, Miss Oldham Class 5 teacher and Mrs Niblock, Class 4 teacher. Mrs Gilroy is the year group leader and assistant headteacher in school.
Should you have any queries at anytime, please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher or any of the team. We look forward to meeting you informally at the forthcoming ‘Meet the Teacher’ sessions – please see this week’s Year Group Newsletter for more details.
We have had a fantastic half term learning about our local area as part of our ongoing topic ‘We are Forefield’! We have visited Rimrose Valley and as well as looking at physical and human features of Geography, we have found out all about how close we live to the Leeds Liverpool Canal. In Maths, we have been learning our number bonds to 10. As scientists we have been naming plants including trees. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading our class text of ‘Lost and Found’ and finding out all about the penguin and his quest to find a friend. We have been learning styles of music and this half term our focus has been hip-hop and how to find the pulse. In Art, we have been learning about the famous artist Mondrian, primary colours and secondary colours. We can’t wait for the forthcoming term!
