Year 1

Miss Gill

Class Teacher

Mrs Hamam

Teaching Assistant

A huge welcome to Year 1 from myself and Mrs Hamam 
My name is Miss Gill. I am a newly qualified teacher who has specialised in Early Years. 
I am full of enthusiasm and energy and I ensure my lessons are fun, engaging and exciting to keep the children engaged and wanting to learn. 
In Year 1, from autumn to the end of spring term we had continuous provision that runs alongside the curriculum. Continuous provision helps children to learn many skills. It challenges children's thinking, helps them embed concepts and also allows them the opportunity to grow their independence. During summer term we are starting to prepare the children for Year 2 through more formal learning. 
Summer 1
English: Toys in space
Maths: Multiplication and division and fractions 
Science: Plants and we are growing sunflowers
