We have great fun in Giraffes class in Year One! We have a fabulous classroom and outside learning area. The outside learning area backs straight onto our award winning school grounds. We often enjoy a story under the tree when it's sunny!
Miss Prince is our class teacher and our learning is supported by Mrs Avery, Mrs Burnham-Slipper and Miss Slater.
Each term we enjoy exploring different topics and the children are actively involved in the lively process of choosing our Big Picture questions.
In the first part of the Autumn term our topic is 'Lets Explore!'. We all become explorers and begin our exciting journey learning about different countries around the world. After the October half term we will be observing the changes to the environment around us as part of our topic 'Sensational Seasons'. After Christmas we begin our 'Let's Play!' topic where we will explore toys old and new. We then move onto 'Amazing Animals' for the second half of the spring term. Our summer term begins with 'Welcome to Wimborne' where we will explore our local environment and the wider global community beyond. 'Being Beside the Seaside' ends our time in Giraffes where the children will have fun in the sun thinking about the coast.
