Welcome to Percy Main Primary School

Welcome to Year 1

The staff you will meet in Year One are Mrs Tullock, Mrs Mohun, Mrs Whittle and Miss Lister.

It is a big step from Reception to Key Stage 1 and we try to make it as welcoming and fun as possible.

Throughout the first term we follow a ‘transition period’ that echoes the learning styles of Reception, and they are gradually introduced to all of the routines of Key Stage 1.  We have small group phonic sessions that are based on the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme, reading books and a weekly piece of homework that is based on the work we are covering in our topic.  We will also go on lots of visits to support our topic work.

We believe this approach ensures that your child feels secure, safe and confident and will have a fantastic time in Year 1.

Out current learning experience is...

This term we will be going ‘Wild About Animals’!  The children will be learning about all different kinds of wild animals including where they come from, their homes and habitats, what they eat and how to classify them into different groups.  

Learning will take place through a range of exciting and creative activities including finding out about then designing and building our own animal homes, making animal masks, constructing our own wild animals and culminating in our Safari Experience Day! 

We are also hoping to meet a few real life wild animals along the way!!!

Our Zoo

As part of our current learning experience looking at Wild Animals, we transformed our school grounds in to our very own zoo! 

We began by creating enclosures and safe areas to keep our animals. Then we worked collaboratively to draw and create an array of fantastic creatures to put in to our zoo. These included giraffes, dolphins, spiders, lions, butterflies, pandas and even a warthog! 

Our final task was to place all of theanimals in their enclosures, ensuring that had food, water and shelter.

We had a great day!
