Indigo Class (Year 1)

Welcome to the Indigo Class (Year 1) page!

Indigo Class (Year 1) is for children aged 5-6 and is taught by Mrs Gooch.

A warm welcome to the Indigo Class information section. The children have settled into life in Year One really well. We have been learning about the six main animal groups (mammals, amphibians, reptiles, insects, fish and birds). The children are currently very busy making their wind-up toys out of Pringles tubes. We have started learning the songs for our nativity play and the scripts will be sent out before the half term. We all love the story of poor old Maurice the mule. We hope lots of parents will come along and watch us in December!

The children in Year 1 have been learning about plants. So far this term we have looked at the structure of flowering plants and trees. We have painted beautiful pictures of Claude Monet’s ‘Water Lily Pond’. We have been focusing on how to use capital letters and full stops correctly and in maths we have been looking at equivalent values of coins and dividing groups of objects into halves and quarters.

The children in Y1 have settled into their new classroom really well.

They have been producing some lovely independent writing and have been enjoying their ‘Read, Write, Inc’ sessions. They have been learning to tell the time, measure the length of objects and they have been adding numbers and coins together. Their throwing and catching skills have really improved over the past few weeks. They have been learning about the animal groups, Florence Nightingale and about Christian symbols. I’m sure you’ll agree that they all sang beautifully at the Harvest Service.

We’re now looking forward to performing our nativity play in December.
